High On Light is Keith Hamer's best bet of the day at Beverley and he has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland.

High On Light can shine brightly on her second start following a lengthy lay-off when she goes for staying honours in the 132nd Year Of The Watt Memorial Handicap at Beverley.

The five-year-old mare returned from a 284-day absence with an encouraging run on this course over a mile and a half.

Jane Elliott set a steady pace on the David Barron-trained daughter of Makfi and it almost paid off as she was only collared close home and beaten a neck by Phantasmic.

The challenge came too late for High On Light to fight back. Had she time to respond, then the result may have been different.

However, that race will have blown away the cobwebs and should have put her spot on for her next start.

This will be her first try at two miles, but she was successful over a mile and three-quarters at Haydock where she stayed no signs of stopping.

Mywayistheonlyway lifted the Beverley Annual Badgeholders Handicap by a nose 12 months ago and can repeat the trick, but hopefully a little cosier.

Grant Tuer's five-year-old showed he was nearing his best when only beaten a neck by Jacob Black at Musselburgh two weeks ago.

North Korea can win for the second time in a week when the filly turns up for the Wolsley UK Nursery Handicap at Bath.

David Evans' youngster had finished second on her two previous races, before getting off the mark in cosy fashion at Lingfield.

Having gained confidence from that performance, North Korea should be capable of defying a 6lb penalty.

Desert Cross has been in fine form since returning from a 151-day break, winning at Bath and Salisbury.

Jonjo O'Neill's charge has only been put up a total of 7lb and can complete the hat-trick in the Rainbow Casinos Cardiff Handicap.

Cornborough can end a year-long barren spell with victory in the Weatherbys Racing Bank Handicap at Thirsk.

The Mark Walford-trained gelding has had his issues since he last got his head in front at Haydock last July, but now looks to be running into form.

He has had two decent runs since having a wind operation and it might be third time lucky in this mile-and-a-half handicap.

Jacks Last Hope has taken well to fences and can make it two wins and a second in his last three starts in the Mazak & PP Going Forward Together Novices' Chase at Worcester.

After a facile success in a three-horse affair at Perth, Chris Grant's nine-year-old lost nothing in defeat when beaten five lengths by a useful sort in The Unit at Hexham.
