Yarmouth NAP - 17:10 - Back Battista

Battista built on earlier promise and made the most of a good opportunity when opening his account over an extended mile at Wolverhampton in July and the runner-up has franked the form.

He was strong in the market for his handicap debut at Sandown last month but didn't improve as much as expected, his inexperience apparent in the finish against a battle-hardened rival. Battista has been raised 1 lb since, but he is bred to relish this step up in trip, has been gelded since and is very much a horse to keep on the right side from this sort of mark.

Yarmouth Next Best - 17:45 - Back Vespasian

Vespasian has run some solid races in defeat this season, hitting the frame five times and arguably unlucky not to have gotten his head in front on a couple of occasions.

Admittedy, he wasn't at his best at Windsor last time, weakening when headed over a furlong out, but he has been freshened up since, and finds himself in an easier grade of handicap. He is worth chancing now just 2 lb higher than his last winning mark.

Back Vespasian @ 10.519/2 on Betfair Exchange
