Miqueon (2.30 Chepstow)

Boom The Groom (4.47 Brighton)

Harrogate (5.55 Ripon)

Bollin Neil (6.25 Ripon)

Mars Landing (6.55 Ripon)

6.25 Ripon - Bollin Neil

Tim Easterby enjoyed an incredibly successful Ebor meeting, and Bollin Neil can keep the wagon rolling in the Best Odds Guaranteed At Handicap at Ripon.

Winter Power's Nunthorpe victory was the York highlight for the Easterby team, and Bollin Neil sits very much at the other end of the scale to that speedster as he tackles two miles.

The five-year-old seemingly failed to stay the extra furlong when stepped up from two miles at Carlisle last time, so this slight ease back in the trip should be a positive move.

Bollin Neil previously scored over this trip at Catterick earlier in the season, and a mark of 67 still looks pretty competitive.

5.55 Ripon - Harrogate

Harrogate can regain winning ways in the Vaccination Centre Volunteers Thank You Handicap.

Paul Midgley's six-year-old struck over this five furlongs in May and has been in form lately, scoring at Musselburgh and finishing third at Nottingham on his latest start.

Harrogate kept on well to take minor honours behind Glorious Rio to suggest the 5lb hike for his win in Scotland is not beyond her.

6.55 Ripon - Mars Landing

Mars Landing is the choice in the Visit Handicap.

He was victorious on his first start of the campaign at Leicester back in April but has been unable to follow up so far in two subsequent starts.

His latest effort was disappointing, though, as he lost despite being favourite in a two-runner affair at Windsor.

However, that turned into a pretty tactical heat - with the winner getting a canny front-running ride - so Mars Landing should perhaps be given the benefit of the doubt.

4.47 Brighton - Boom the Groom

Boom The Groom can roll back the years by registering a 10th career win in the Sky Sports Racing Hd Virgin 535 Apprentice Handicap at Brighton.

Tony Carroll's 10-year-old has won nine of his 90 starts and was collared only on the line over the course and distance three weeks ago.

He can make amends for his nose defeat by Shamshon on his return to the south-coast track.

A drop back to six furlongs can do the trick for Tawaazon in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Maiden Stakes.

Seven furlongs at Salisbury found out the Invincible Spirit gelding on his second start when he was sent off the 13/8 favourite. He held every chance until fading in the final furlong to finish fourth behind Unique Cut.

Owen Burrows' charge had shaped well over this distance on his debut at Nottingham and deserves another opportunity.

3.30 Chepstow - Bellevarde

Bellevarde can continue her consistent run by winning the County Marquess Handicap at Chepstow.

Richard Price's seven-year-old rarely puts in a poor effort, despite having had 14 races already this year.

After an all-weather campaign, the mare has been in fine form on turf. She has not been beaten far on any of her seven starts on grass and gained a well-deserved success at Windsor this month.

Bellevarde looked slightly unlucky last time at Nottingham when she went down by a length to Latin Five, after having to be switched at a crucial stage. She can gain recompense here.

2.30 Chepstow - Miquelon

Miquelon can get off the mark at the eighth attempt in the Acorn Property Group Apprentice Handicap.

The former French-trained gelding has been running well without getting the breaks and did nothing wrong when beaten two and a half lengths by L'Operateur at Ffos Las. Miquelon was well clear of the third horse that day and can finally get his head in front.

Caramelised may build on a fine start over hurdles in the second division of the Visit Juvenile Hurdle at Stratford.

He hacked up by seven lengths on his initial run over obstacles, despite racing a bit keenly early on, and he could be a quality recruit to the division.
