1: BROUGHTONS GOLD (1:00pm Haydock) (3 Votes)
Won a novices race on second start at Kempton back in October, when Sterling Stamp was disqualified a place, before winning at Newbury last month on handicap debut, producing some excellent top speed figures. Rise of 7lbs today, but looks to still have enough in the tank to win it here.

2: PATRICK SARSFIELD (7:45pm Navan) (3 Votes)
Picked up his first career victory at Curragh in October and then returned from a gelding operation to take the spoils on seasonal debut at Leopardstown, storming to a five length victory. Rises to 1m 2f this evening, but should improve, even with the handicapper clamping down.

3: GALATA BRIDGE (8:30pm Wolverhampton) (3 Votes)
Debut sixth at Kempton, last October and returned to action after wind surgery to finish second at Newbury last time out, three weeks ago. Extends in trip to 1m 4f which should suit him well and can go close on handicap debut today,

4: KING’S CHARISMA (12:00pm Haydock) (2 Votes)
Has looked a strong prospect in opening four starts to career, before grabbing the victory at Redcar a fortnight ago on first run over 1m 2f. Looks to be a 2-3lbs better off, despite the penalty today and has a big chance of making it two in a row.
(Sunday Telegraph, Whistler. Shropshire Star, Andy Morris)
5: SIR PLATO (2:20pm Chepstow) (2 Votes)
Had dropped off a little in form, but picked up a second here last month, before taking the spoils in impressive style, beating Limelighter by 9.5 lengths a week later and cementing his claims of being back to something of his best. Drops to 7f this afternoon, but no surprise if he was to grab a second win on the bounce.
