Angel Palanas has already scored twice at Southwell in the last couple of weeks and can make it three on the bounce on the all-weather surface in the Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap.

The Karl Burke-trained four-year-old struck twice in succession at the Nottinghamshire circuit in January and has rediscovered his form as 2018 is about to end.

His two latest successes have been over seven furlongs, rather than this six, but the drop back in trip should not be an issue as he has been well in control some way out in those races.

Burke might have a profitable afternoon, as Wind Storm has claims in the Betway Novice Median Auction Stakes.

She is still a maiden after five starts, but only two for Burke and was clear best of the rest when second at Newcastle when last seen.

Mr Carbonator is proven on the Fibresand and a return to the Nottinghamshire circuit is expected to bring out the best of him for the Betway Boost Handicap.

Phil Kirby's three-year-old gelding has won twice from five tries here and only been out of the first three once.

He has in fact largely been consistent at his level all year and ran another good race when last seen at Beverley in August, keeping on well to be third.

Eponina has been knocking on the door here and her latest chance comes in the Follow Top Tipster Templegate At Sun Racing Handicap.

Mick Appleby's filly should thrive on her first try at seven furlongs on the Fibresand and has been dropped a handy pound for her latest effort, a staying-on third over six furlongs last month.

Samovar gets the nod in the betyourway At Betway Handicap. Scott Dixon's charge will enjoy being back at Southwell, where he won two on the bounce back in March.

Enjoy Responsibly can give punters some pre-Christmas cheer in the Sky Sports Racing Launching January 1st Handicap Chase at Fakenham.

The nine-year-old should arrive cherry ripe at the Norfolk track following an encouraging effort at Hereford five weeks ago, on his first run since May.

The Oliver Sherwood-trained gelding was entitled to be a little ring-rusty - but there was no denying his eyecatching display.

Restrained in the early stages and a little keen, Enjoy Responsibly made stealthy late progress to be only beaten a length and a half in third place behind Touch Kick when sent off a 25/1 shot.

Fabianski can show her 20/1 success at Wetherby last month was no fluke by following up in the Support The Injured Jockeys Fund Juvenile Hurdle at Catterick.

The daughter of Raven's Pass could not have done better on her first run since joining the Rebecca Menzies team from Pam Sly as she scooted up by 17 lengths.

It may not have been a good field she beat, but she could not have done it any better and could prove to be a decent recruit.

FAKENHAM: 12.50 It's O Kay, 1.20 Todd, 1.50 Enjoy Responsibly, 2.20 The Very Thing, 2.50 Chequered View, 3.20 Doncesar De Pretot.
