Key To Power can continue her winning groove in the MansionBet Proud To Support British Racing Fillies' Handicap at Yarmouth.

Mark Johnston runs his Brighton scorer quickly under a penalty after her authoritative performance at the end of last week.

Key To Power translated her all-weather form to prevail on turf for the first time, well away and never in any apparent danger en route to a three-length success.

A reproduction of that uncomplicated formula, over the same six-furlong trip, ought to see her defy the extra 6lb and halt the winning run of likely market rival Camachess.

This week's welter of forecast rain will necessitate a degree of adaptability nationwide, with underfoot conditions likely to deteriorate almost everywhere.

Key To Power has yet to be tested on easier ground - but as a daughter of Slade Power and out of a mare who also won on soft in France, she has sound prospects of handling a variety of surfaces.

Earlier on the card, Sir Fred is expected to go off at longer odds but may be able to break his duck at the 11th attempt in the Download The MansionBet App Handicap.

Julia Feilden's four-year-old grey did not appear to get home on his seasonal debut over almost three furlongs further here last month.

But it was a broadly promising return nonetheless, and the drop back in trip should be in his favour against a field of equally exposed and as yet moderate handicappers.

Half an hour later, Swansdown is of significant interest in the MansionBet At Yarmouth Handicap.

She was a beaten odds-on favourite on her stable and annual debut at Haydock last month, and was turned over too when hopes were high last November that she could send veteran trainer Luca Cumani into his retirement with a winner at Wolverhampton.

Swansdown got the message late that day, but finished well and still has obvious potential to strike at this level.

The lightly-raced Herculean is an eyecatching contender in Haydock's Pareto Financial Planning Handicap.

Roger Charlton's well-regarded son of Frankel is out of a Group One-winning sprinter, and wasted no time demonstrating his own talent with a winning debut over seven furlongs at Ascot back in September 2017.

Restricted to just three runs since, including one comfortable victory, the four-year-old gelding should have too much speed for these rivals if fully fit for his comeback.

Archie Watson's Dorah can follow up her recent Leicester win in the Join Racing TV Now Handicap. She is up 4lb for that two-length success, having appeared to relish the step up to a mile and a half - suggesting the extra two furlongs here will be entirely suitable.

Watson's juvenile debutants are of obvious note, and Better The Devil fits the bill in Hamilton's Audi On Demand Glasgow EBF Maiden Auction Stakes.

Also of interest on the evening card is the hat-trick-seeking Majeste.

The five-year-old is up 8lb in all for his two quick wins late last month - but in his narrow successes here and then at Carlisle, he indicated the extra two furlongs on this stiff track may well bring further improvement.
