Sleeping Lion should take the step up to a mile and a half in his stride as he tackles the Thatcham Butchers Handicap at Newbury.

The three-year-old opened his account at the third attempt for James Fanshawe when triumphing by a length at Kempton last month.

Racing over 11 furlongs that day, Sleeping Lion travelled and quickened up well and while the margin of victory was certainly not impressive, the handicapper has at least been limited in what he can award as an opening mark.

The son of Teofilo lines up here on a perch of 70 and given he has shown every sign a longer trip will suit, he might be well treated for this handicap bow.

Temeraire is worth following in the British EBF Fillies' Handicap on what will be her first turf start in over a year.

She has not raced on grass since last June, when she was second at La Test De Buch for French trainer Henri-Alex Pantall, but impressed when winning on her debut for Hugo Palmer at Lingfield back in November.

Temeraire has failed to add to that success in three subsequent starts but reunited with James Doyle here, she is interesting back on grass.

Eeh Bah Gum's claims in the Be A Winner With Bohle Handicap are much more clear-cut as he seeks his fifth win on the bounce at Haydock.

Tim Easterby's runner has officially improved 29lb since finishing fourth on his seasonal bow at Thirsk back in April, claiming two wins at Redcar as well as victories at Beverley and Catterick.

Despite his rise up the ratings, he still took the eye with his most recent Redcar success last month and bearing in mind he drifted a bit in the finish that day, he might be a shade better than the two-length margin indicates.

Monaadhil is taken to go well in the Watch Racing UK Anywhere Handicap at Epsom.

Marcus Tregoning's runner has only had four outings to date, winning two of those before coming very close to making it a third success on his recent return.

Beaten just three-quarters of a length by an odds-on favourite at Bath last month, Monaadhil just looked in need of the run when push came to shove and should make plenty of progress for the outing.

Earlier on the card, Long John Silver has a leading chance in the Focus Rigging Ladies' Derby Handicap, with the Jamie Osborne-trained four-year-old looking handily weighted.

Howman was a cosy winner of a novice event last time and can follow up in the Grosvenor Casino Of Great Yarmouth Handicap at the seaside track.
