13:30 (Catterick) Nietzsche

Brian Ellison's grand campaigner Nietzsche can make a drop in class count in the Fascination By Cherished Handicap.

The nine-year-old has won four times on the Flat, four times over hurdles and three times over fences.

He has not managed to get his head in front since a Listed chase win at Ayr in April of last year, but there has been merit in his last couple of efforts at Sandown and Thirsk.

Stepping back up in trip following a 2lb ease in the weights, he should make his presence felt.

14:30 (Catterick) Oso Rapido

Returning to the scene of his sole triumph this season, Oso Rapido can provide the value as he looks to bounce back from a couple of lesser runs of late.

The son of Kodiac is only 1lb above that success in July and he is taken to fend off the likes of old rival Embour and impressive Doncaster scorer Impeller.

Ventura Express was an eyecatcher when staying on late in the Great St Wilfrid but has yet to win beyond 5f.

15:30 (Catterick) Midnight Moll

Midnight Moll is expected to give weight and a beating to her rivals in the Fillies' Novice Stakes.

The Newmarket debut winner ran a fair race on her return to the July Course on her second start when fourth behind the seriously impressive Laurel.

The penalty proved beyond her that day, while the way she faded late on over the mile suggested she will be seen to better effective back over the seven furlongs she faces in North Yorkshire.

Midnight Moll has significantly less on her plate and is difficult to oppose.
