Sunset Flash appears to face a straightforward task in the Fruit Shoot Novice Median Auction Stakes at Wolverhampton.

David Lanigan's filly made an encouraging debut in a hot event at Chelmsford in November won by the potentially very smart Dubai Warrior and made no mistake later that month at Newcastle.

Always travelling like a winner on that run at Gosforth Park, she looks to have a bright future and will appreciate this extended mile better than the seven furlongs she faced there.

Diamond Oasis is progressing along the right lines and should take the beating in the Fruit Shoot Fillies' Handicap.

She does face one or two useful types in this seven-furlong affair, but the Saeed bin Suroor-trained three-year-old has the benefit of a recent run, and a winning one at that.

Not that much went to plan for her at Chelmsford earlier this month, but she still had enough class to get her head in front and there looks to be a bit more to come.

The Godolphin colours should also be on the mark through Setting Sail, who can make an immediate impact after 572 days off by winning the Follow Us On Twitter At wolvesraces Novice Stakes.

It seems significant Sheikh Mohammed's operation is persevering with the son of Dansili whose two career starts to date came in September 2017.

The Charlie Appleby-trained four-year-old was successful on his second outing at Goodwood and makes a low-profile return.

Extreme Appeal can continue his excellent recent run by completing a hat-trick in the racingtv.com Handicap at Redcar.

The Kelly Morgan-trained seven-year-old has struck at Doncaster and Newcastle in the last three weeks, and has only been put up 4lb because he has not won by much. He could still be underestimated by the assessor.

Ex-French runner Hortzadar made a winning start for David O'Meara recently and can follow that up in the Join Racing TV Now Handicap.

The four-year-old could hardly have been more impressive at Pontefract and is one to keep on the right side of for now.

Fragrant Dawn gets the nod in a trappy running on the Watch Racing TV In Stunning HD Novice Stakes.

Paul Hanagan takes the ride for Charlie Hills on the Iffraaj filly, who went close in her two runs as a juvenile, finishing third on both occasions, beaten less than a length in each.

Magic Saint has been to Cheltenham and Ayr but is in much calmer waters in the Friars Walk Newport Handicap Chase at Chepstow.

Paul Nicholls rates the five-year-old highly but he took an early tumble in Scotland and should be fairly fresh.

Champion jumps trainer-elect Nicholls can land yet another decent prize with Romain De Senam in the William Hill Sussex Champion Handicap Chase at Plumpton.

The seven-year-old won in game fashion at Fontwell recently and looks set to put up a good performance in this valuable contest.

Denis Coakley's decision to try Saumur over obstacles was rewarded at the second attempt with victory at Huntingdon last week.

It is no surprise the West Ilsley trainer wants to strike while the iron is hot and make a quick return to that track for the MansionBet Mares' Novices' Handicap Hurdle.

At Fakenham, Neil King can take the David Keith Memorial Veterans' Handicap Chase with Vaxalco.

The 10-year-old only went down by a head on his first start for 76 days at Huntingdon earlier this month and can go one better.

A typically competitive renewal of the BoyleSports Grand National at Fairyhouse can go to Total Recall for Willie Mullins, who remarkably has yet to win the big race.

Favourite for last year's Grand National at Aintree, Total Recall has been treated with kid gloves this season, having just two runs under his belt. The patience of his connections looks set to be rewarded in style.
