Oisin Murphy makes the long trip north to Newcastle on Tuesday but should be rewarded with a winner for his boss, Sheikh Fahad Al-Thani.

The pair have enjoyed a memorable season this summer with Roaring Lion’s victory at Ascot on Saturday confirming him as the outstanding colt of 2018 and in WIRETRAP, they might just have another promising sort on their hands.

The son of Charm Spirit made a debut packed full of promise when finishing second to the smart Legends Of War at Yarmouth back in the spring and having been allowed the summer to strengthen up, returned to the seaside track the fill the same position last month.

He looked a shade unlucky on that occasion, travelling supremely well in behind the leaders whilst waiting for a clear run and although out in the plenty of time, he was just nabbed close home.

He remains a nice type for the future and can make good use of the weight he receives from debut winner Turjomaan in the Ladbrokes First For Racing EBF Novice Stakes (2.40).

With Yarmouth still in mind, I want to stick with Potters Lady Jane in the RCA Flat Racecourse Groundstaff Award Winners Handicap (3.30).

The lightly-raced six-year-old has only visited the south coast twice but she was a narrow second at the track back in August before finishing with a flourish to score over the same course and distance last time.

She could still have plenty more to offer and shouldn’t be underestimated.

Back in the North East, the treble is completed by Pure Shores who has won her last two now but actually competes off a 1lb lower mark than when successful at Bath last time.

The sunracing.co.uk Classified Stakes (5.45) look another excellent piece of placement by her shrewd trainer Ian Williams.
