Keith Hamer previews the evening cards at Windsor, Ripon and Roscommon and has a tip for every race.

Brigand can hit top form on his third race since returning from a 175-day break by lifting the Horse Guards Gin John 'Bear' Shaw Handicap at Windsor.

The William Haggas-trained three-year-old shaped well enough on his comeback at Sandown last month and showed he was a bit sharper when third to Lord Vetinari at Chester.

He was staying on well over seven and a half furlongs on the Roodee to suggest this mile should be right up his street.

Garden Oasis may have only got home by a nose when opening his account at Haydock but that was just his fourth race and he was suited by stepping up to a mile and a quarter.

The Excelebration colt, trained by Sir Michael Stoute, looks like he can cope with the extra furlong and a half to travel in the concluding At The Races Handicap.

Ad Libitum was just pipped by Garden Oasis that day and Roger Fell's three-year-old is worth supporting in the Sanlam Private Wealth And Guests Handicap at Ripon.

He won his next race at Carlisle and ran with great credit against older horses, when third to Aasheq in the Cumberland Plate back at the same course on his latest start.

The Elusive Quality gelding was sent off the 7-4 favourite that day and he can recoup losses taking on his own age group.

Mikmak finished first and second on this course last month and looks sure to give a good account of himself in the Ripon, Yorkshire's Garden Racecourse Handicap.

The Tim Easterby-trained five-year-old runs off the same mark as when going down by only a neck to Daira Prince. That race was over nine furlongs and he will appreciate the step back to a mile and a quarter over which he had been successful earlier.
