DOUBLE: Hot Rod Mamma and Marmalady.
The brilliantly-named Hot Rod Mamma can scorch a trail to victory in the JD Pipes Handicap at Carlisle.
Dianne Sayer's mare is having the time of her life this month and deserves to pick up another race of this nature.
The six-year-old daughter of Traditionally won by five lengths over this course and distance at the beginning of August before she was hurled back into the fray at Ripon 12 days later.
Despite running off an 8lb higher mark, Hot Rod Mamma made short shrift of that burden to get to within half a length of the upwardly-mobile Nemushka.
Although she shaped encouragingly, that race in North Yorkshire was over a mile and a quarter, which is almost certainly not her ideal trip.
Sayer's representative has, after all, won four races over a mile and has arguably not got anywhere near as much on her plate here as she had at Ripon.
Back at her favourite track and distance, Hot Rod Mamma should be almost guaranteed to give punters a good run for their money in the trusty hands of PJ McDonald.
Discussiontofollow looks one of the more interesting thoroughbreds vying for top honours in the Betfred Mobile Sports Maiden Stakes at Catterick.
Geoff Harker's three-year-old is evidently held in quite high regard at home, having fetched £60,000 at the sales as a yearling.
Indeed, he hardly looked a forlorn hope on his debut at Redcar a few weeks ago when he overcame a sluggish start and showed up well for a long way.
The petrol tank began to flicker inside the last of seven furlongs, though, so it is perhaps understandable that the wise Harker has dropped him back to six here.
This looks a tougher race than at Redcar, but Discussiontofollow now has that all important first run to his name.
Master Of Song deserves another chance to restore his tarnished reputation in the Ladbrokes Follow Us On Twitter Handicap at Southwell.
The Roy Bowring-trained chestnut wrecked his chances of victory at Leicester last time when he crawled out of the stalls and could never make up the lost ground.
It was a similar story here over a mile on his penultimate outing when a tardy start probably cost him victory.
Master Of Song finished second that day, beaten just a length and a half, and returns to Southwell off just a 2lb higher mark.
Granted a cleaner break - which, of course, is no certainty - he must surely have enough about him to go close at a track on which he often reserves his best form.
Marmalady can avenge a narrow reverse at Kempton earlier this month by taking the Ladies Day With Toby Anstis 07.09.13 Handicap back at the Sunbury venue.
Gary Moore's filly went down by a neck to Avatar Star over seven furlongs in a race that is working out well.
The third home that day, Gold Beau, duly struck at Hamilton last Friday night yet was beaten out of sight at Kempton.
Marmalady has gone up 3lb, which is not ideal, but Moore's decision here to step even further back in trip to six furlongs looks a wise move for this unexposed three-year-old.
Victor Leudorum did the job with a hint of authority last time and can make a successful return to Worcester.
Charlie Mann's versatile six-year-old has gone up 6lb for a tidy three-length triumph in a novice chase over this course and distance.
Victor Leudorum is clearly still progressing over fences - he has won twice from four starts - and should be good enough to overcome his revised mark in the worcester-racecourse.co.uk Handicap Chase.
