Battaash was one of the stars of the season in 2017 and can make a winning return in the Armstrong Aggregates Temple Stakes at Haydock.

Charlie Hills' horse has to give away weight here but this electric talent can do exactly that having signed off last year with a career-best performance at Chantilly.

In the preceding Sandy Lane Stakes, Sands Of Mali can confirm last year's form with Invincible Army and take another step up the ladder in the process.

Richard Fahey's colt made a winning return in France and is fancied to step up again here.

Isabel De Urbina is the one to beat in York's Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Bronte Cup Fillies' Stakes, but Precious Ramotswe was so impressive on her return that she's taken to cope with a sharp rise in grade.

John Gosden's filly impressed some good judges on her debut last year and, having had just four starts, looks one to keep on the right side of.

Over at Goodwood, Grand Koonta can get us off to a winning start in the Netbet Sport Handicap.

Trained by Clive Cox, this Dark Angel colt looks potentially well-treated off 97 on the pick of his two-year-old form and fitness isn't expected to be an issue.
