Here’s our best bets…

LAST MISSION: 6:25pm Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Handicap | 1m

David Simcock’s gelding enters handicap company for the first time off a lowly mark of 68 and he may yet improve now in this sphere on an artificial surface. Jamie Spencer is jocked up on the son of Invincible Spirit for the first time and he should be a decent recruit in this company given his pedigree.

DONO DI DIO: 8:00pm Unibet New Instant Roulette Filles’ Handicap | 1m 3f 129y

The former C&D winner is down to 7lb lower than he last winning mark, which was only in September 2020. Claimer Stefano Cherchi takes some of the weight off the six-year-old’s back here and she now looks a live contender off a rating of 68, with the return to the all-weather and this distance sure to suit.

MARCHING ARMY: 8:30pm Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day (London Middle Distance Series Qualifier) Handicap | 1m 2f 219y

Leading owners at the track, Godolphin are represented by their Leicester winner off Staines Road East this week bidding to claim a 13th win at the course this year. The form from his East Midlands success is very strong but he hasn’t faired well in his only other two appearances. However, first-time cheekpieces and a switch to the polytrack may spark a revival and it’s interesting to note that Oisin Murphy, who steered him to his sole success, is aboard for the second time.
