Knight Bachelor - 15:40 Towcester

Knight Bachelor couldn't quite justify market support on his handicap debut in March but it suggests he's thought capable of better and he's taken to come good with a tongue tie added now. Astaroland is fairly handicapped if bouncing back to his winning Sedgefield form of a couple of months ago, while Bathwick Man should get involved if ready to go after an absence.


Occult - 19:45 Leicester

An interesting looking 3-y-o handicap can go the way of Occult, who is nicely-bred and has shaped well in maiden company. He looks to have been brought along steadily with a handicap campaign in mind, and can fend off Musselburgh winner Third Time Lucky and Cyril, who should benefit from the step-up to a mile.


Captain Morley - 20:05 Windsor

Captain Morley can boast some rock-solid 3-y-o form, and though he ended 2014 on a slightly low note, he's the type to make a better 4-y-o, so rates a fascinating contender. Black Shadow also reappears for an-form yard, with Warrior of Light another to consider on his recent Doncaster run.
