SEAPORT was added to my GG-Alerts after his third at Wolverhampton in February of last year where he fared best of the prominent racers in a two-mile handicap run to suit the closers. The front-running sixth won at Kempton next time at 10-1 to give the form a boost.

RED SKYE DELIGHT (stall one of 14) caught the eye in a 7f Chelmsford novice contest last December, finishing a 25-1 sixth from a poor draw when not given a hard time on what was her second career outing. The five that finished in front of her are now rated 86, 66, 62, 63 and 58 and a mark of 53 could underestimate her chance in the 6f Hills Prospect Simply The Best Apprentice Handicap when she returns to Chelmsford this evening (5.20). She’s had excuses since – failing to cope with the step up to 1m2f next time, a run she needed for a handicap mark, proving unsuited to Tapeta when a front-running sixth at Wolverhampton and getting no cover from wide draw in a 7f handicap at Kempton last time. She’s well drawn tonight, trainer Luke McJannet went close with a 25-1 shot at Newmarket on Saturday and it’s interesting to see her also entered up at Lingfield later this week.

ELITE ICON (Musselburgh, 4.30) has been frustrating over a variety of distances but now returns to his course and distance-winning trip for the first time since May.
SWEET PURSUIT tends to peak in high summer, recording form figures in handicaps in July and August of 311311146 (5-9). The fourth place came in a 16-runner contest and the sixth place can be excused, as it came on her belated reappearance this year. It’s possible that she’ll need another run before reaching peak fitness but she's still worth chancing in the 6f Download The Marathonbet App Fillies’ Handicap at Windsor on Monday (6.50).

BILLY ROBERTS (Beverley, 7.30) enjoyed his belated return to the East Yorkshire venue 18 days ago so it’s no surprise to see him back again on Monday.
