Buffer Zone can start to become something of a Windsor specialist by following up a recent six-furlong course success in the Sky Bet Top Price Promise Handicap.

The son of the speedy Bated Breath made a triumphant return after a 238-day absence to comfortably land the odds by two and a quarter lengths in a 10-runner novice event.

Victory was never in doubt once he was asked the question and the Roger Charlton-trained colt looks the answer to this sprint series qualifier at the Berkshire venue.

Contrive is of plenty of interest as she switches company in the Aptus Investment Fund Fillies' Handicap.

Roger Varian's runner kicks off life in the handicap division on an attractive mark of 81 having shown promise on each of her three starts to date.

She had clearly impressed a few punters when sixth on her racecourse bow as she was sent off favourite for her second start at Haydock, but she did not enjoy the clearest of passages that day and had to be content with fourth.

Contrive then rolled on to Goodwood where she made eyecatching late headway to finish second over a mile, giving every indication the switch up to 10 furlongs here should suit.

Quick ground is a bit of a question mark, but it may well prove the handicapper has been particularly generous to this filly.

Jahaafel looked a bit rusty on his seasonal return earlier this month, but can feel the benefit of that outing in the Alan Bushell On Course Bookmaker "Confined" Novice Stakes at Chepstow.

Fourth on his first trip to the track at the backend of last year, Jahaafel filled the same position at Wetherby when beaten just under two lengths.

He was another to be putting his best work in at the end that day, and 10 furlongs looks right up his street.

Rippling Waters is getting the hang of the racing game after running in two bumpers and in Flat races at Ayr and Lingfield, where she was a close second to Khamry.

Trainer Mick Channon looks to have found an ideal opportunity for the four-year-old filly in the County Marquees Novice Stakes.

The consistent Becker can register his third success of the year in the Sports Careers At sportingjobs.co.uk Handicap at Wolverhampton.

The James Given-trained colt has been on the go virtually all year but has been holding his form pretty well.

A winner at Kempton and Chelmsford, Becker has not been beaten far in his last two starts and has been dropped 1lb by the handicapper.

Jack's Point should waste no more time in opening his account in the Sports Careers At sportingjobs.co.uk Novice Stakes.

William Muir's youngster finished strongly to get within a neck of the winner Secret Venture when third at Leicester on his debut and will have learnt a lot from that experience.

Dr Dunraven struck when reverting to fences at Worcester earlier this month and Martin Keighley's charge looks the one to be on at Southwell's jumps meeting.

The seven-year-old had a couple of sharpeners over hurdles before going back over the bigger obstacles and it paid off with a cosy success.

He has gone up 9lb for that, but that should not stop him from following up in the Betting Odds At bettingodds.com Handicap Chase.
