Reverend Jacobs is Anita Chambers' best bet at Pontefract and she has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland.

Reverend Jacobs can make it a quickfire double in the tiesplanet.com - Ladies Love Guys In Ties Handicap at Pontefract.

The four-year-old hit the mark at Newmarket last Friday and the fact William Haggas feels compelled to turn out under a 6lb penalty possibly speaks volumes about his chances here.

Lining up in a competitive heat at Headquarters, Reverend Jacobs easily shook off his rivals to win by the best part of three lengths in a course-record time.

The handicapper is sure to take a dim view of that victory, so it makes sense to strike quickly with conditions in his favour.

Foxtrot Knight has been running consistently well of late and should be worth a shout in the Chaplins Club Handicap.

That he has won one of 11 starts so far this term is obviously not overly encouraging, but he has been in the mix on no less than nine of those outings.

He has dropped back down the weights a little now and a mark of 73 might not be beyond him, in a race trainer Ruth Carr will be keen to win, with Chaplins Club having been trained by her late grandfather, David Chapman.

Rare boasts quite the pedigree as a Galileo half-sister to Blue Bunting, so connections are surely keen to get her head in front at Kempton to enhance her paddock prospects.

She ran with plenty of credit to be edged out on her racecourse bow, being beaten just a neck after striking for home with a couple of furlongs to run.

Sir Michael Stoute appears to have found a nice opportunity for her in the 32Red Fillies' Novice Stakes and she should be followed.

Ship Of The Fen disappointed at Goodwood on his most recent effort but he should not be deserted as he returns from a break in the 2Red Casino Handicap.

He was only beaten a length and a quarter into third at the Sussex venue and is worth another crack at a mile and a half back on the all weather, particularly as Kempton is expected to be riding on the slow side.

Come On Come On can regain the winning thread in the 188Bet Extra Place Races Handicap at Chepstow.

He has not put a foot wrong in three starts so far this year, winning once and placing twice, and can find the back of the net again.

Machell Place can make it third time lucky in the British Stallion Studs EBF "Sire And Dam-Restricted" Novice Stakes at Yarmouth.

He found the well-regarded Al Hilalee too good on his initial outing but improved on that to be beaten just a neck at Newmarket on his most recent outing last month.

Machell Place would not have to show too much more to be winning.
