2.40 Catterick - Sage Advice (top tip)

Richard Newland is a trainer to take very seriously, whatever the code or occasion, and his Sage Advice catches the eye in the Millbry Hill Handicap.

The four-year-old is returning from a six-month break, and doubtless has a winter campaign over hurdles on his agenda.

But Sage Advice proved on his stable and jumps debut, after arriving from Ireland in January, that he is well capable of striking after this sort of break - as he duly did in a Kempton novice hurdle.

He went on to run with credit at the Cheltenham Festival, and was then last seen as a beaten odds-on favourite but finishing a fair third over this course and distance back on the Flat in April.

He therefore remains on the same rating, and looks a danger to all here.

Lord Torranaga will give Sage Advice a battle, already a winner over a similar distance at Catterick in October.

2.05 Catterick - Val De Travers

Val De Travers can cap his gradual improvement with a breakthrough victory in the Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap.

The three-year-old slowly began to get the hang of things in his debut campaign for Lawrence Mullaney through the summer, culminating when he outran his odds on handicap debut to be beaten under three lengths when seventh at Ayr in July.

He subsequently changed hands and, from a 4lb lower mark, immediately signalled his potential in this grade when an unlucky second on his first start for Danny Brooke at Musselburgh this month.

Val De Travers is back up just 2lb for his trouble, and that is not a reassessment which should stop him if all goes smoothly this time.

Little did, over this same minimum trip, up in Scotland - where he was awkward out of the stalls, found minor trouble in running and also lost a shoe.

He was nonetheless beaten just a head in second and, on only his sixth career start, has obvious prospects of going one better.

Captain Corcoran looks the likely challenger, already a course and distance winner and down 2lb on his last outing.

Others to fancy at Catterick: 1.00 Manila Scouse, 1.30 Sweet Glance, 3.15 Obee Jo, 3.50 Metal Man, 4.25 Muscika, 4.55 Rain Cap

5.10 Newcastle - Purple Ribbon

Charlie Fellowes may be in business up at Newcastle, where Purple Ribbon takes on more experienced rivals but has decent prospects in the Betway Handicap.

The three-year-old filly is making just her third racecourse appearance - having scored on debut in a Chelmsford maiden at the end of August and then settled for second at the same course two weeks later as she tried to defy a penalty in novice company.

She enters handicaps after another seven-week break and, on the basis of her sound but vain finishing effort in defeat last time, this move up from a mile to 10 furlongs on a stiffer track should be suitable.

Big things are expected of John and Thady Gosden's Gal Wonder, who makes her Tapeta debut here. Another sired by Galileo and has already won at Newmarket, and finished a good second and third in her six races this year.

6.40 Newcastle - Another Dawn

Later on under lights, Another Dawn can shine at dusk in the Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap.

George Boughey's filly is already a handicap winner, having struck at the first time of asking in this sphere at Wolverhampton last month.

The daughter of Exceed And Excel has proved slightly disappointing in one subsequent effort, outpaced when beaten into third as an even-money favourite at Chelmsford.

She sticks to the same trip but is likely to face more of a test of stamina here, and may well regain the winning habit from a 1lb lower rating.

Keep an eye on good each-way shout Blackheath here too.

7.10 Newcastle - Cover Name

Cover Name has so far been unable to get home in front, and four runner-up spots in as many career starts may not instantly breed confidence.

She has been a beaten favourite on the last three occasions, after outrunning big odds on debut for previous trainer Kevin Philippart De Foy.

Cover Name has since represented an equally canny and able team, in trainer Grant Tuer and jockey Sam James, and it will be surprising if they cannot eke at least one success out of her this year.

This switch to Tapeta may prove the catalyst.

In truth it's a weak race and it's likely the only major challenge will be from the well-rested Dabirstar who hasn't run since April.

Others to keep an eye on at Newcastle: 4.00 Floating Rock, 4.35 Sophosc, 5.40 Sea Speedwell, 6.10 Rich Dream

1.38 Bangor - Go Dante

Over jumps at Bangor, the return of Go Dante will be eagerly awaited by many in the first division of the Halloween Novices' Hurdle - which opens the card.

Olly Murphy's five-year-old made a big impression with a debut success in a Wincanton bumper in March, and is a likely winner again as he switches to hurdles.

Green Planet could challenge although will be interesting to see how he goes over the jumps after his switch from the Flat.

2.13 Bangor - Hurlerontheditch

Hurlerontheditch arrives in this sphere via a similar route in the second division of the same race, having unseated in an Irish point-to-point and then won on his only rules start in a Wexford bumper.

He has since had wind surgery and joined Kim Bailey, so is of obvious interest too - albeit up against Murphy's dual, unbeaten bumper scorer Washington in a race which looks sure to pinpoint several future winners.

Others to bet on at Bangor: 2.48 San Agustin, 3.23 Rare Clouds, 3.55 Salamanca School, 4.30 Could Be Trouble, 5.00 Oscar Nomination, 5.30 Latitude
