Today's press and media naps come in the shape of selections from Windsor, Newcastle, Kempton and Ripon. Check them out below, which come alongside an exclusive offer from the Tote, who are providing new customers with a £20 welcome offer.
1. GLEN ESK (8.15pm Windsor) (4 Votes)
Has shown improved form since returning from a break, backing up a close second at Yarmouth with wins over course and distance, and at Haydock, the last twice. Up just a pound for the more recent of those successes, and the dry forecast looks a plus for his chances here.

2. CAPOTE'S POWER (6.45pm Windsor) (4 Votes)
Very progressive since joining current connections from Ireland, producing form figures of 1121021. The form of his latest victory at York has been well advertised with the runner-up (Mr Wagyu) landing a valuable pot at Goodwood over the weekend, and he is up just three pounds for that success.

3. RAISE THE ROOF (4.33pm Newcastle) (2 Votes)
Beaten favourite at Wolverhampton on debut back in January, but she has won both starts since. Now makes her first jaunt into handicap company, but this opening mark of 83 is unlikely to prove the ceiling of her ability, and today's surface clearly suits.

4. KODA LEGEND (3.15pm Kempton) (2 Votes)
Has bumped into some smart sorts in three starts in novice company (just over a length behind the now 86-rated Canonized at Goodwood on penultimate outing). That run in isolation makes his opening mark of 78 look potentially lenient, and he has been gelded and fitted with a visor prior to making his debut in this sphere, which could eke out improvement.
Daily Telegraph, Marlborough. Racing Post, The Punt.
5. BOSSIPOP (3.42pm Ripon) (2 Votes)
Admirable veteran who notched the ninth win of his career when going in at Pontefract in May. Bounced back from a couple of below-par subsequent performances when going close at Hamilton on Saturday. Runs off the same handicap mark today, and being a four-time course and distance winner the return to this venue is a clear plus.
