The well-travelled I'll Have Another can sign off her busy campaign in style on the final day of Pontefract's 2018 season.

The Listed ebfstallions.com Silver Tankard Stakes provides a fitting finale for the West Yorkshire venue, and it is Mark Johnston's filly who makes most appeal.

She faces a clutch of lightly-raced potential improvers among just four opponents.

But I'll Have Another will know more than any of them about the cut and thrust, having finished a close second in a Group Three event and then won at Listed level on her September trip to Germany before twice heading to Newmarket.

On her most recent outing there, she made significant further progress by hunting up Norway when beaten just a length in the Zetland Stakes.

None of her rivals has yet established that level of form - and back in trip to a mile on this stiff track, I'll Have Another is an obvious contender to do just that and bag her fourth career win.

Deja looks a potentially classy individual and can supplement last month's Chester success in the Watch More With Racing UK Extra Handicap.

Previously trained by Jeremy Noseda, Deja won one of his two juvenile starts but was then off the track for over a year before returning on the Roodee.

While he did not have much to spare at the line, the second has been placed again since - and the third home has triumphed in the interim.

He should progress for that outing and certainly has the pedigree to rank a bit better than this.

At Windsor, Central City has fine prospects of continuing his improvement in the Weatherbys Global Stallions App Handicap on his third start since switching to Ian Williams.

The three-year-old gelding has been on the go since April, and a sprinting campaign for Hugo Palmer culminated with victory at Wolverhampton in August.

Williams has since put him up to a mile, and Central City responded with a Doncaster success on stable debut and then further useful form when third in an Epsom handicap at the end of last month.

Desert Frost is worth another chance in the 32Red/Stallions Breeding Winners EBF Handicap at Kempton, after failing to fire at Chelmsford recently.

Beaten five lengths into fourth, he tried to close from midfield but never really looked like getting there.

He had previously been pretty consistent and is not one to dismiss out of hand.

Vaniteux is an interesting runner in the SIS Supports Moorcroft Handicap Hurdle at Plumpton.

His powers appear to be on the wane now, and he disappointed from his lowest mark for some time when last of five over fences at Kelso recently.

However, David Pipe has made the move back to the smaller obstacles this time - and Vaniteux can take advantage of an even lower mark in this sphere.

Vaniteux has not run over hurdles in more than two years now, but the change could reignite the enthusiasm in this former graded-race performer.

Sporting Life tips:

KEMPTON: 5.40 Alaskan Bay, 6.10 Blue Mountain, 6.40 Desirous, 7.10 Lady Lawyer, 7.40 Cobweb Catcher, 8.10 Silver River, 8.40 Desert Frost, 9.10 Watch Tan.
