King Of Tonga can rule the roost on his seasonal return at Beverley.

Richard Fahey's three-year-old grey was progressive in four juvenile starts last summer and resumes on a feasible footing in the Alan McGuiness And Robin Lunness Memorial Handicap.

He has been gelded since he was last seen in public, when he failed to cope with a subsequent winner and was beaten into a half-length third as the 9-4 favourite at Chester in September.

The runner-up that day has also won since, however, giving King Of Tonga's form a solid look in this promising but far from daunting company.

Musharrif has already had the benefit of a recent run and has been dropped 1lb for what was a largely encouraging return at Thirsk this month.

He has an obvious opportunity to build on last season's progress, back to his preferred minimum trip in the Beverley Annual Badgeholders Handicap.

In the closing Whistlejackets Craft Ale Bar Novice Auction Stakes, Mark Johnston's Oasis Prince ought to have fine prospects of defying his penalty after victory on his turf debut at Leicester.

Andrew Balding remains in decent form and may have a decent evening at Chelmsford.

Hero Hero faces some likely opposition representing high-profile connections in the Bet toteexacta At totesport.com Maiden Stakes.

But the King Power colt made a fine start to his career when an eye-catching second on his Doncaster debut at the end of last season. He finished strongly once the message got through that day, indicating enough ability to get off the mark here.

An hour later, Balding deploys Foxtrot Lady in the Betsi Conditions Stakes.

It is a tough opening assignment, but she was a significant improver on the turf last summer and returns with useful credentials.

Perth's April meeting is in full swing, and Theflyingportrait looks just the ticket in the GS Group Handicap Chase.

Jennie Candlish's bold-jumping grey has conditions back in his favour after being highly-tried on unsuitable ground of late.

He is back down 3lb for his latest vain attempt and will be much more at home in this environment.

Piton Pete took advantage of the favourite's departure but was nonetheless a decisive winner at Carlisle last month and, up just 4lb, should be competitive in the Heineken UK River Tay Handicap Chase.

At Warwick, back-to-form My Charity is ready to open his account.

Graeme McPherson's gelding is better on this decent ground, as he showed when chasing home subsequent Graded hurdle and chase winner Secret Investor at Stratford this time last year.

My Charity's forays over fences were emphatically unsuccessful at the start of this season - but he can strike in the racingtv.com Maiden Hurdle after an improved effort at Wetherby two weeks ago.

Robin The Raven is back from a long break and will surely return to fences soon, but he can kickstart his summer campaign in style by winning the Like Racing TV On Facebook Handicap Hurdle.
