Matt Brocklebank has a bet for all four of Monday's meetings and fancies one at a price at Hamilton.
There's more than a small case to be made for ESPRESSO FREDDO in the Barbara Ann Letham And Son Jonathan Memorial Handicap (Division II) at Hamilton.
Granted, he's not one to set your clock by but running from a mark of 70 in a Class 5 (0-70) could just be the time to catch him, particularly with the recent Chester comeback run under his belt.
He was beaten a long way there over seven and a half furlongs - too sharp a test for him these days - but it was his first appearance since a decent fourth at Newbury back in May and Dougie Costello now takes over from a 5lb claiming amateur in the saddle.
The first time Costello ever rode Espresso Freddo he won well at Kempton last December off a rating of 73, while it's also worth noting the horse was a creditable second at 25/1 here at Hamilton last September, following a distinctly uninspiring comeback run earlier that month.
There's enough to go on, including the proven course form, to merit a bet at what will be a fair price in an open-looking contest.
PLANSINA has plenty going for her ahead of the Cazoo Handicap at Bath.
She's gone up a couple of pounds for winning over course and distance on similar ground at the start of the month but struck gold off an even higher mark here back in May.
She's never won back-to-back in the past but should get a nice tow into it behind Carp Kid, who is drawn next door in stall two.
There should be better days ahead for TO BE SURE and he looks well placed to make a winning return in Newton Abbot's Racing Partnership Novices' Handicap Hurdle.
Evan Williams' six-year-old fell on his chasing debut in early-March but bounced straight back to defy a handicap mark of 102 in that sphere at Hereford later in the month.
He had to tough it out but the front two came six and a half lengths clear of the rest and the runner-up won his next race - from a 4lb higher rating - by 15 lengths.
To Be Sure was bumped up to 110 over fences on that back of it but makes his return over the smaller obstacles from a mark of 105, which certainly looks exploitable. This should tee him up nicely for a switch back to fences.
Chicken Itza could be a major improver in the Read Kevin Blake On attheraces.com British EBF Fillies' Maiden at Newcastle, but I'm comfortable staying loyal to AUNT BETHANY.
Charlie Watson's filly showed up well on her Yarmouth debut at the beginning of August and appreciated the step up to this distance when second to smart-looking newcomer Good American a month later at Salisbury.
She finished ahead of the reopposing Persist on that occasion and should continue to sharpen up with racing as she still looked a bit clueless when initially asked for an effort. That bodes well that there's more to come and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Hollie Doyle really try and take this race by the scruff of the neck quite early on.
