Mick Channon has a fine strike-rate at Pontefract and Royal Jet looks capable of improving that record in the Polar Castleford Connect Handicap, writes Nick Robson.

The four-year-old has just the two victories to his name so far - the latest coming on fast ground at Leicester last August - but he has put up some good efforts since, particularly on his latest outing when finishing an eyecatching second at Ascot.

With only three runners behind him two furlongs out at the Berkshire track, the son of Royal Applause fairly flew home to fill the runners-up berth behind the progressive Young Mick.

Dropped in class here and with conditions to suit, he looks sure to reward interest.

A short time later at Brighton, Landucci takes an excursion back to his favourite track to take part in the John Smith's Brighton Mile Challenge Trophy.

The five-year-old gelding has now won five times in 21 starts on the turf and registered all five victories at the seaside course.

Handler John Hills has a terrific strike-rate at the course and his son of Averti looks ready for a return to his favourite winner's enclosure.

The Hills family can celebrate a quick double when the Barry Hills-trained Namu runs in the Pulse Bar Sprint Handicap.

Already a winner at Folkestone and Warwick last month, this improving three-year-old filly looks capable of adding to her tally.

The speedy daughter of Mujahid put her fine early pace to good use at Nottingham last time when taking up the running three furlongs out and it took a couple of previous winners to catch her inside the final furlong.

She will be better suited by the contours of Brighton and could take the catching if allowed to poach a lead.

The nap of the day runs in the TFM Networks Maiden Stakes at Kempton's evening meeting.

Mosharref chased home Secret World in his division of the Wood Ditton at Newmarket and looks a cut above anything else in this field.

Very highly thought of at home, Barry Hills can make it an across-the-card double.

At Yarmouth in the evening, Alambic bids to land her fifth successive victory in the PKF (UK) LLP Handicap over an extended one mile, six furlongs.
