Keith Hamer says Dawaaleeb can return to winning ways at Beverley on a busy Bank Holiday Monday.

Dawaaleeb can return to winning ways in the Our Monica's 70 Reasons To Drink Champagne Handicap at Beverley.

Les Eyre's four-year-old went to Pontefract two weeks ago on the back of a narrow success at Newcastle and looked like doubling up when he hit the front two furlongs out.

However, he was run out of it close home and had to settle for third place behind Gulf Of Poets.

Dawaaleeb remains very much unexposed after just seven career starts and looks sure to be make his presence felt once again.

Life For Rent put up an encouraging display when third to Fortunate Vision at Ripon last month after a 197-day absence.

The Tim Easterby-trained three-year-old would be an appropriate winner of the Mark Birch Memorial Handicap. The race is named after the former long-standing jockey to the Easterby stable, who died in 2016.

Life For Rent can only improve from his comeback run and should take plenty of beating.

Airshow put up a decent performance to make all the running at Kempton last month on his first start for 167 days.

The three-year-old, trained by Rod Millman, has been raised 5lb for that effort, but it is possible he will have improved more than that on the back of that race and he is worth a chance in the Community Drive Vauxhall Handicap at Bath.

First Selection may not be the force he was in his heady days earlier in his career, but he showed signs on his latest start that he could be close to a return to winning ways.

Simon Crisford's five-year-old lost his way after winning the Group Three Solario Stakes as a juvenile and being highly-tried at three in races like the 2000 Guineas and St James's Palace Stakes.

However, he only went down by a head to Unforgiving Minute at Lingfield last month and can go one better in the BPE Winter Secret Garden Christmas Parties Handicap at Windsor.

Masterplan can waste no time opening his account in the new season in the Qatar Airways Handicap Chase at Warwick.

The Charlie Longsdon-trained eight-year-old last got his head in front in April 2017 and begins the campaign on a workable mark.

After a spell chasing last term, Rothman signed off with a victory over the smaller obstacles at Plumpton.

Trainer Chris Gordon keeps the eight-year-old to that discipline for the Matchbook Betting Podcast Handicap Hurdle at Kempton and that decision can pay dividends.

Rainy City can defy a 7lb rise in the Book The Ayrshire Magazine Noughties Racenight Handicap Chase at Ayr.

Iain Jardine's eight-year-old swept to victory by 11 lengths at Perth two weeks ago and can follow up if he shows the same form.
