Jacob Black can rediscover the winning trail in the Catherine Roache Handicap at Musselburgh.

The seven-year-old's career appeared to be going backwards at the end of last season, but a return to Keith Dalgleish's yard ahead of the new campaign appears to have given him a new lease of life.

He made the most of a mark of just 49 when bolting up here on his seasonal reappearance and following a couple of decent efforts in defeat, added to his tally off a 10lb higher mark back at Musselburgh in early June.

Dalgleish's charge was perhaps unfortunate not to follow up at Carlisle on his most recent appearance, having to settle for second after a tardy start, but at least that effort proved there are more races in him.

The handicapper has bumped him up another 3lb, elevating him to a perch of 69, but he is clearly in good heart and likes this track, so there is every chance he can strike gold once more.

It could be a profitable afternoon for Dalgleish, with Falcon's Fire also of significant interest in the TPF Schemes Handicap.

It is getting on for two years since the gelding last tasted victory, a triumph which came over this course and distance.

That spell in the wilderness has seen his rating drop dramatically from 70 to 53, but his runner-up finish at Hamilton three weeks ago was a big step in the right direction and hinted his return to winning ways might not be far away.

The Richard Fahey-trained Aljady rates the best bet of the afternoon at Thirsk. The Al Shaqab Racing-owned colt made a successful start to his career at Redcar last October and returned to the track to make it two from two on his seasonal reappearance last month.

He takes on vastly more experienced rivals in the Follow @racing_uk On Twitter Handicap, but is clearly an exciting youngster and can keep his unbeaten record intact.

After bolting up over the course and distance almost three weeks ago, Roger Varian's Queen Of Desire is impossible to oppose in the Dribuild Group Confined Novice Stakes at Bath.

Heart Of Grace can claim her second win from as many starts in the 100% Profit Boost At 32Redsport.com "Confined" Fillies' Novice Stakes at Kempton's evening fixture.

Over the jumps at Worcester, Colin Tizzard's Exxaro can follow up a recent triumph at Uttoxeter in the Arctic Spas Worcester Grand Annual Handicap Chase.
