Bombyx is fancied to defy top-weight in the feature race on the opening afternoon of the three-day fixture at Yarmouth.

Trained by James Fanshawe, three-year-old has shown himself to be a useful performer this term, after winning the second of his two starts as a juvenile.

Following two solid efforts at the start of the season, he was odds on to beat one serious rival on a scorching afternoon at Doncaster in July, and did so with the minimum of fuss.

He was tried in Group Three company at Goodwood, in what was a tidy little renewal of the Gordon Stakes, and while Cross Counter and Dee Ex Bee were too good, there was no disgrace in his third-placed effort.

The Dan Hague, Yarmouth's Number 1 Bookmaker Handicap offers a good chance to return to winning ways.

Swindler went within a nose of making a winning debut at Windsor a month ago and should waste no more time in opening his account by taking the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes.

Ed Walker's juvenile was edged out by Fares Kodiac, who did the form no harm when third in a decent race at Doncaster on Wednesday.

Mark Johnston looks to have found another excellent opportunity for Massam by way of the Robert Eustace 50th Birthday Nursery Handicap.

The Dubawi colt appreciated the step up to a mile on his nursery bow at Newcastle earlier this month after three placed runs over seven furlongs.

Making all, he was a ready winner and it will be a surprise if he does not have more to offer just yet.

Pursuing Steed can follow up a cosy Doncaster success in the Get So Much More With Racing UK Apprentice Handicap at Redcar.

The Hughie Morrison-trained four-year-old showed a straight seven furlongs on a galloping track was right up his street when he stayed on strongly under a Rab Havlin to score by a neck.

He looked to win with a bit in hand, so a 5lb rise looks fair. The assessor may have taken a chance by only putting Extrasolar up 3lb for a tidy triumph at Cattterick.

Geoff Harker's eight-year-old has been running consistently well all season and can strike for a fourth time in 2018 in the Weatherbys Racing Bank Foreign Exchange Handicap.

Vivionn looks one to be with in division one of the Starsports.Bet/EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes at Lingfield.

The Dubawi filly may only have beat three home on her debut at Sandown in June, but that does not tell the real story as she missed the break slightly and found herself at the rear of the field.

While never going to get to the leaders, the Sir Michael Stoute-trained youngster was making nice progress when short of room inside the final furlong.

She would have been closer but for that and it will be disappointing if she does not come forward markedly for the effort, with an extra two furlongs promising to be in her favour, too.

Stoute can enjoy a good day at the Surrey track, as Romola is very much in the mix for division two, in the same colours of Cheveley Park Stud.
