MYSTIC FLIGHT (3.00) drops into a handicap with a big chance at Newbury. Roger Varian’s three-year-old lost nothing in defeat when trying to concede a stone to odds-on Honey Man at Chelmsford City last month and could prove a cut above some useful but exposed older rivals.

GUSTAV KLIMT (3.35) may be rewarded for running some excellent races in defeat this summer by landing the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes. Aidan O’Brien’s colt got within half a length of Without Parole in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot and wasn’t beaten far behind Lightning Spear in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.

THE TRADER (1.50) meets a better class of juvenile in the 7f Listed contest but he has been very impressive when winning at Beverley and Chester. Mark Johnston has booked Ryan Moore and The Trader can upset a couple of more fancied rivals.

The Great St Wilfrid Handicap at Ripon is the highlight of the north Yorkshire track’s year and course specialist PIPERS NOTE (3.15) should give his backers another huge run. Ruth Carr’s speedster has run them ragged over course and distance this summer and may be able to go one better than last year when just denied by Mattmu off a similar rating. Pipers Note has drawn stall one on the far side which is often the place to be in these big sprints.

At Newmarket, REBEL STREAK (2.45) should go close to defying a 6lb penalty in a competitive three-year-old sprint. David Probert was on top when Andrew Balding’s blinkered gelding scored quite comfortably at Leicester earlier this week but Jason Watson takes over, with his 5lb claim almost negating the penalty.
