Isomer ran well when only beaten half a length by Pactolus over this mile six weeks ago and Andrew Balding's four-year-old can go one better in the 100% Profit Boost At 32redsport.com Handicap.
Local History made a perfectly respectable start to her racing career at Yarmouth last month and James Tate's youngster should build on that in the Bet At racinguk.com Fillies' Novice Auction Stakes.
The Richard Hannon-trained Rum Runner is interesting trying the all-weather for the first time in the 32Red Casino Handicap. He ran a bit better than fourth place might suggest at Ascot on his latest start in an amateur riders' race.
Authorized Too looks capable of getting in the mix for the 32Red.com Handicap, after what was a promising return from well over a year off at Haydock. That was in very testing ground and he was won around here before.
Bermeo can maintain his successful streak in the Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap Chase at Plumpton.

Paul Nicholls' runner had previously finished second on his first attempt over fences and might be a little wiser for the experience now.
Abbeygrey was unfortunate to run into a fair performer at Ludlow last month but performed with credit to take second place.

This is a replacement fixture for Leicester which was abandoned due to unseasonably fast ground and presents a good opportunity for Abbeygrey's Welsh trainer Evan Williams.
Cougar Kid came from 161-day day break to fill third spot, only a length and three-quarters behind the winner, World Premier, last week.
John O'Shea's seven-year-old has won twice at this track and could prove tough to beat in the attheraces.com Handicap Hurdle as long as those exertions have not left their mark.
Grey Diamond can sparkle over a longer distance in the photodesign.co.uk Novices' Hurdle.
A staying-on fourth over two miles on his jumps debut at Bangor three weeks ago, the Alan King-trained four-year-old can progress for that first effort.
