Passing Star made quite an impression with his debut win and he can step up again as he tackles the Download The BetVictor App Now Handicap at Kempton on Thursday.

Trained by Charlie Hills, Passing Star hails from the family of Group Three winner Shining Hour and appeared to have inherited more than a modicum of ability with a narrow verdict at Lingfield last month.

While a neck success could hardly be termed impressive, the way Passing Star rallied again when put under pressure by a more experienced rival was very promising indeed.

Runner-up Treasure Cay gives the form a solid look and an initial mark of 75 gives Hills something to work on.

Waveguide is on quite a roll at present and can defy top weight in the Download The BetVictor App Now Fillies’ Handicap.

The five-year-old took a fair while to get off the mark, but now that she has started winning, the mare cannot put a foot wrong.

Her neck victory at Lingfield must have delighted David Simcock, although it did not appear to be the strongest race and she was allowed an easy lead.

However, she proved it was no flash in the pan when defying a 2lb rise to strike again over the same 10 furlongs, again in a very average race.

This event could be similarly run of the mill and while Waveguide is saddled with a further 2lb, she should be capable of finding the necessary extra once again.

Moorhouse Lad has tumbled down the ratings as he reaches the twilight of his career, but it is not beyond the realms of possibility that he can claim gold once again at Southwell.

Rated 112 in his pomp and winner of two Group Threes, it is some time since Moorhouse Lad hit the target, with his last victory in April 2010.

That said, the 11-year-old has not totally lost the plot and is still more than capable of hitting the frame, as he showed when a close-up third at Kempton most recently.

He disputed the lead all the way to the line but had to settle for minor honours off a mark of 77, the same perch on which he lines up in the Compare Bookmakers At bookmakers.co.uk Handicap.

Moorhouse Lad is clearly not the horse he once was but back at Southwell, where he has won before, he can roll back the years.

Gogeo thrives on the Fibresand and can go in once again in the Coral Mobile “Just Three Clicks To Bet” Selling Stakes.
