Jet Streaming can pick up some valuable black type in the Tennent's British Stallion Studs EBF Rothesay Stakes at Ayr.

The four-year-old was trained by Adrian Keatley in Ireland last year and after winning a competitive handicap at the Galway Festival, she was pretty reasonably tried.

Pitched into Group Three company at Newmarket last autumn, she acquitted herself well in fifth but could not build on that in a final attempt at Listed success last October.

Transferred to Ian Williams' care over the winter, Jet Streaming turned in a promising debut for her new team when fifth at Goodwood earlier this month, giving herself far too much to do after missing the break.

It is to her credit she made up some ground, but Jet Streaming should at least be sharper for the experience while a drop back to 10 furlongs may also play to her strengths.

She has a bit to find on the official figures with a couple of rivals, but this does not look the strongest Listed heat and could be a good opportunity.

Elysian Flyer hit the bar on his return to action but should waste no time in getting a win on the board in the Guinness Handicap.

The six-year-old finished best of all in a five-furlong apprentice heat, showing plenty of dash to be beaten just over a length off his lowest ever mark of 75.

The handicapper clearly liked what he saw as Elysian Flyer has subsequently gone up 3lb, but even with that extra little chunk, Elysian Flyer remains some way below his highest perch.

Legends Of War cost 900,000 guineas at the breeze ups in April so connections will likely be hoping to see a swift return on some of that money in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes at Yarmouth.

Trained by John Gosden, this son of Scat Daddy is a fascinating contender amongst a field of largely newcomers.

In contrast, Daring Guest is much more of an open book but is still worth plenty of consideration in the ROA/Racing Post Owners Jackpot Handicap.

Dash Of Spice ran an excellent race to finish second in the City And Suburban at Epsom last time and can go one place better in the 32Red Handicap at Kempton.

He tried to make all that day and just fell short, but deserved plenty of credit against a well-regarded individual.
