Sky Sports heads to Nottingham where the British Breeders Stakes provides the highlight on a night our correspondent Darrell Williams believes could turn out to be a good one for favourite backers...

"King Kid's make-up outside kennelmate Queen Dawn makes Liz McNair’s first string the one to play and the recent Kent Derby runner-up, fancied to steer a wide path early on, can assert his authority around the third and fourth bends"

19:11 Sprint

Tromora Sonic can be a trifle inconsistent but is very effective when able to dominate which she can do here and is fancied to make all. Recently returned Suirside Leah would be a shoo-in on her old form and rates a solid FC link.

19:26 Standard

In-form local Salacres Vincent deserves his chance in this company and is interesting given his exceptional early pace but may not contain strong running Calico Blackjack. Tyrur Hugo has the draw but has won only once in nine career outings and can be opposed.

19:43 Ladies

Versatile Geelo Zip, effective from both on and off the pace, could hardly be in better heart and will take all the beating. Snaffle any [2.4] or bigger. Looking Sharp is better than some of her form lines might suggest and is the one for the 'cast.

19:59 480m

An exciting match looks on the cards between two in-form sorts in Drumkeen Oyster and Boomtown Actor with preference for the former based not only on his excellent make-up but also versatile race style unlike his rival who is all guns blazing from the boxes.

20:16 Stayers

After two short-odds defeats, Geelo Monty made no mistake at Newcastle last week and should be backed again over a trip that looks ideal especially at [2.2] or above. Six bend debutant Cuba could have been under-estimated and is one to include in FC's.

20:33 Standard

Fweshfromthesesh has hit form with a vengeance since his return from Ireland and can confirm Hove form with Calico Ranger in a race in which the pair look set to dominate.

20:51 Ladies

On what looks set to be a highly lucrative night for Carl Perry Geelo Brenny, who has been flying around Sheffield, should take all the beating against comparatively moderate rivals and anything above [2.5] should be snapped up.

21:08 British Breeders Stakes final

Sheffield raider Candlelight Fire could hardly have taken better to this circuit, defending the event's only unbeaten record and having also accounted for main market rival King Kid in last week's semi-finals. However, clearing pacey Romeo Desperado, whose first move will be to his right is something of a concern in an all-seeded final.

John Mullins' runner came into this event without a race since the spring and having matched his neighbour with an identical semi-final clocking is of some interest anyway given the possibility of further improvement on just his third run back.

While King Kid never looked likely to win that key semi-final clash, his make-up outside kennel-mate Queen Dawn, who will edge inwards by the first bend, nevertheless makes Liz McNair's first string the one to play and the recent Kent Derby runner-up, fancied to steer a wide path early on, can assert his authority around the third and fourth bends.
