Zip Along can bring up her hat-trick in the smarkets.com Fillies' Handicap at Haydock.

She did not manage to get her head in front in two juvenile starts last term, but the experience has clearly stood her in good stead this year as she is two from two so far.

A novice winner on her belated debut at Doncaster in July, she then made a successful switch to handicap company when winning at Nottingham at the back-end of that month.

That two-and-a-quarter-length victory has seen her take a 7lb hike in the ratings, but that was a comfortable win which suggested there was plenty more left in the tank.

Mister Ambassador and Too Darn Hot can make it a double for Frankie Dettori and John Gosden at Sandown.

The first-named contests the Fizz Fridays At Slug And Lettuce Handicap on the back of a decent novice victory at Newcastle on his latest outing.

His likely main rival that day was withdrawn at the start which did ease his task, but nevertheless it was a stylish win that promised more for the future.

A starting point of 84 appears reasonable enough and Mister Ambassador can kick on from here.

Too Darn Hot boasts a dream of a pedigree and should live up to expectations in the Slug And Lettuce 2-4-1 Tanqueray Thursdays EBF Maiden Stakes.

A son of Dubawi out of Dar Re Mi, he is a full-brother to So Mi Dar, who looked as though she would reach the very top level only for some bad luck to scupper her chances against the very best.

The family is certainly more than capable though and it is encouraging that Gosden thinks him ready to start on the track at an earlier point than his siblings.

Rosamour has hit the bar on her last two starts but can enjoy her moment in the spotlight in the THB 50th Anniversary Maiden Auction Stakes at Brighton.

She looked progressive at Newmarket, picking up well to finish just over three lengths behind a much better fancied rival and it would not take much more improvement to come home first.

Stakeholder comes from a proven family of winners and is one to follow in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes at Yarmouth, while hopes are high of a Newcastle triumph for Paco Escostar.

She lines up in the Play Blackjack At 188Bet Casino Handicap after finding a better treated rival just too good last time out.
