13:20 (Wetherby) Sonning

13:55 (Wetherby) Texard

14:30 (Wetherby) Highland Frolic

15:05 (Wetherby) Pencreek

15:40 (Wetherby) Hillview

16:15 (Wetherby) Carlo Du Berlais

16:50 (Wetherby) Get With It

14:30 (Wetherby) Highland Frolic

Highland Frolic is a very interesting debutante for Milton Harris in the Mary Lofthouse Supporting Spinal Research Juvenile Hurdle.

He cost 320,000 at Tattersalls Book One in 2020 but did not cut much ice on the Flat for John and Thady Gosden.

A half-brother to Palace Pier, if he takes to hurdling, he could be prove a shrewd acquisition.

15:05 (Wetherby) Pencreek

The feature Bobby Renton Handicap Chase likely to go to Pencreek.

Ben Pauling has enjoyed a fruitful summer with his small team and Pencreek himself added three victories to his tally.

He runs in the famous Gold Cup-winning colours of Mr Mulligan and while summer jumpers can often flounder in the winter off inflated marks, Pencreek might be able to buck the trend.

He is forgiven a below-par run in a match last time out and can get back to winning ways.

16:50 (Wetherby) Get With It

It is hard to oppose Get With It, who was successful at Perth two starts ago and he only found one too good when last seen at the same venue. A further 3lb rise in the ratings may not be enough to prevent another good performance.

Mac Suibhne has some good form to his name and he edges out Ceolwulf to be the pick of the remainder.

Big Difference would be a player if turned out quickly again following his engagement at Hereford on Tuesday.
