Keith Hamer previews the action on Tuesday and makes David Simcock's Walk On Walter his standout selection.

Walk On Walter can return to winning ways back over six furlongs and on turf in the ABF The Soldiers Charity Handicap at Brighton on Tuesday.

David Simcock's three-year-old tried to make all over seven furlongs at Chelmsford four weeks ago until his stamina gave out in the final 150 yards and he weakened into fourth place behind Quick Breath.

Similar tactics had worked over the stiff six furlongs at Pontefract where Walk On Walter held off Enzo's Lad by three-quarters of a length.

The handicapper has dropped Walk On Walter 1lb after his latest run which should also help the Footstepsinthesand gelding.

Brexitmeansbrexit can finally break his duck in the Good People Recruitment Birthday Maiden Handicap.

The three-year-old filly has been consistent all season, finishing in the first four in all her seven starts.

Second in her last two races at Lingfield and Windsor, this can be her day to silence the doubters.

Busy Street can build on an encouraging first run for Michael Appleby by winning for only the second time in his career in the Eastern Festival At Yarmouth Racecourse Handicap.

Appleby must have been heartened by the six-year-old's third place behind Maifalki at Haydock earlier in the month.

The Rutland trainer looks to have found a golden opportunity for the former Sally Haynes-trained gelding he paid £12,000 guineas for in May.

Connections of Gratified gained an instant return on the 21,000 guineas they forked out for the three-year-old out of Hugo Palmer's stable when he struck at Lingfield last month.

He may have had the race his own way by leading all the way that day, but it was only his second career start and he does not seem have the toughest of tasks in the Lowestoft Hydraulics Novice Median Auction Stakes.

Theglasgowwarrior has already recorded two victories at Hamilton this season and can make it three by giving weight all round in the BB Foodservice Scottish Trophy Handicap.

The Jim Goldie-trained four-year-old struck there in May and July and has also finished second and fourth in two other visits to his happy hunting ground.

Happy Power's long journey from Andrew Balding's Kingsclere base in Hampshire can be rewarded in the Bill And David McHarg EBF Maiden Stakes.

The daughter of Dark Angel has not been since she made a promising debut in May when fourth to The Paddocks at Newbury, but on the evidence of that run she looks capable of opening her account without waiting any longer.

Right Direction showed she was going the right way when getting off the mark in convincing style at Doncaster last month after being placed in her previous career starts.

The Saeed bin Suroor-trained daughter of Cape Cross can cope with the step up in grade to lift the Matchbook Best Value Exchange Handicap at Kempton.
