Font would appear to hold all the aces in the World Bet Exchange Maiden Stakes at Nottingham today.

He made a promising debut behind Saturday's talented winner Rampallion last October, and was backed into favouritism to make a winning return on soft ground at Ripon.

He could not land the odds that day but was unfortunate to bump into Peppertree Lane - whose subsequent form has marked him down as a high-class individual - and the pair pulled five lengths clear of the remainder.

James Fanshawe has a decent record at the East Midlands venue and has teamed up to good effect with Jamie Spencer this season. The pair should be in the winner's enclosure again as the promising Font bids to make up for lost time.

The World Bet Exchange Handicap should go the way of Piety.

Mark Johnston's filly is a gritty performer who was always just pulling out enough to score under a fine Royston Ffrench ride at Sandown last time.

Prior to that, she had made My Arch fight all the way to the line on rain-softened ground at Beverley and her ability to act on the surface here should be seen as a major positive.

The win should have done her confidence some good and she could prove tough to pass, with the excellent Joe Fanning likely to blaze a trail.

Kennington has yet to win from a mark this high in his 58-race career but there are enough reasons to warrant an each-way interest at the likely odds.

John Egan has been placed three times from four starts on this gelding and he has ridden four winners for Christine Dunnett this season to return a healthy level-stakes profit.

They teamed up over five furlongs at this venue in May, when the pair were always to the fore from stall one but were not quite able to match the finishing burst of the prolific Cashel Mead. Expect a bold showing over the extra furlong of the Gasket Cutters' Association Handicap.

With the West Country trainers exerting a strangle-hold on the National Hunt scene, it is always worth having a second look at racing at Exeter and the horse that stands out on this occasion is Boychuk.

Philip Hobbs' charge opened his account over hurdles in facile fashion at this meeting last year. Hobbs has won the last two renewals of the Dean & Dyball Challenge Trophy Beginners' Chase and Boychuk should be able to complete the hat-trick.
