Nick Robson provides a selection for every race on Monday, with William Haggas fancied to saddle a winner at Kempton.

  • Nap: Jahbath, 7.15 Kempton
  • Next best: Aplomb, 2.30 Yarmouth

William Haggas has been able to maintain a healthy strike-rate all season long and given he is ending the campaign in fine form, Jahbath is of definite interest in the second division of the 100% Profit Boost At 32Redsport.com Novice Median Auction Stakes at Kempton.

The Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned colt showed up nicely on his debut at Salisbury earlier this month, suggesting he was a winner-in-waiting.

Beaten just a neck by Gary Moore's Clara Peeters, who had the benefit of a good run on her debut, he could be seen getting the hang of things late on.

Being by Mukhadram, whom Haggas trained, and the way he was finishing off that day suggests he should come into his own stepping up to a mile.

Drakefell catches the eye in the 32Red Handicap.

The Richard Hannon-trained three-year-old is a son of former stable star Canford Cliffs and has registered two wins on the all-weather from his last three starts.

He has not been see in competitive action since winning with plenty to spare at Wolverhampton in March, but should nevertheless give a good account of himself, with a 5lb rise for that latest triumph perfectly fair.

The feature race at Musselburgh, the Racegoers Club 50th Anniversary Handicap, can go the way of Richard Fahey's Starlight Romance.

The four-year-old filly has held her form remarkably consistently all season, considering she began her campaign in May.

Second on her most recent outing at Haydock on soft ground, she is rated as high as she ever has been but deserves to be.

Paul Midgley's Tarboosh had his winning run halted last time out but he showed he was still in great heart and looks the one to beat in the Breeders Backing Racing EBF Flying Scotsman Conditions Stakes.

Aplomb is of interest for the Haggas yard in the British EBF Novice Stakes at Yarmouth.

He had the misfortune of making his debut in what could prove a red-hot Newbury maiden won by Breath Caught, finishing a respectable fifth.

The second has come out and won since to frank the form and Aplomb might not need to improve much to win.

At Windsor, Simon Crisford's Ring Dancer looks the safest conveyance in the Solario Racing Personal Racehorse Syndication Maiden Stakes.

The Teofilo colt has been placed in both his starts to date and there is certainly a race in him.

GOWRAN: 1.55 Blenheim Palace, 2.25 Taliyna, 2.55 Case Stated, 3.25 Muntahez, 3.55 Aunty Audrey, 4.25 Just Waterville, 4.55 Aircraft Carrier, 5.30 Art Of Security.

KEMPTON: 5.45 Spot Lite, 6.15 Drakefell, 6.45 Crackin Dream, 7.15 Desert Friend, 7.45 JAHBATH (NAP), 8.15 Nervous Nerys, 8.45 Lightning Charlie, 9.15 Enmeshing.

MUSSELBURGH: 1.20 Staycation, 1.50 Shamaheart, 2.20 Make Me, 2.50 Inner Circle, 3.20 Starlight Romance, 3.50 Tarboosh, 4.20 Brisk Tempo, 4.50 Pavers Pride.

WINDSOR: 1.40 Zatorius, 2.10 Swiss Chime, 2.40 K Club, 3.10 Acrux, 3.40 Fresh Terms, 4.10 Ring Dancer, 4.40 Atalanta's Boy, 5.15 Caiya.

YARMOUTH: 1.30 In The Cove, 2.00 Hot Contest, 2.30 Aplomb, 3.00 Turjomaan, 3.30 Lily Ash, 4.00 Moretti, 4.30 Spinart, 5.05 Shyarch.

DOUBLE: Jahbath and Aplomb.
