DOUBLE: Embankment and Ishigunnaeatit.

Embankment can continue on an upward curve in the 32Red Handicap at Kempton.

There was every chance his new connections had got a bargain when picking up the Juddmonte cast-off for 40,000 guineas at the sales in October.

Formerly with Amanda Perrett, for whom he won a Windsor maiden earlier that month, he is now in the care of William Jarvis.

And he made the perfect introduction for his new handler when showing a liking for this Sunbury Polytrack in winning with some authority last month.

Runner-up Rakaan reopposes on significantly better terms, but was put in his place and it will be a surprise if he can turn the form around.

Ishigunnaeatit gets the nod in the Claiming Stakes.

Elaine Burke's filly just failed here on her latest start, getting going late in the day and just losing out to Hardy Blue by the narrowest of margins.

We are only talking moderate form at this level but it is worth nothing the winner has won again since.

Roland is worth sticking with in division one of the Nursery.

Not many in this make much appeal and while Kevin Ryan's charge is hardly unexposed, he does come here in winning form after running on quite determinedly to score at Lingfield.

Penalised 6lb for that success, North Yorkshire trainer Ryan seeks to negate that with the booking of Kevin Stott, who takes 7lb off.

Elusive Thought looks the one to be with in division two on his second start for Stan Moore

The Fitri Hay-owned gelding tries a mile for the first time and strikes as certain to appreciate it judged on his strong-finishing second at Lingfield over seven furlongs.

Kingscroft did little wrong in defeat at Wolverhampton over an extended mile but is better at the seven furlongs he faces in the 32 Bonus Handicap.

Miss Blakeney would not be winning out of turn in the £32 Free At Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

The Sir Percy filly has met one too good on three occasions but has responded to the fitting of a visor the last twice and man-of-the-moment Graham Lee rides for the first time.

Canadian Dreamer is the choice in the Bathwick Tyres Bridgwater Handicap Hurdle at Taunton.

Nigel Twiston-Davies' charge steps up in trip to three miles for the first time here and after staying on strongly in his last couple of runs, connections must be hoping he will see out the extra distance.
