13:55 (Wetherby) Rainbow Sky

Rainbow Sky justified odds-on favouritism when making a successful start to her career at Kempton in November and while her comeback fourth at the same track was a little underwhelming on first glance, a forceful ride after a tardy start did not see her to best effect. Switching to the grass, she can reward those who keep the faith.

16:05 (Wetherby) Twelfth Knight

Twelfth Knight is backed to follow up a recent Redcar triumph in the Constant Security Services Handicap. A dual winner for Archie Watson before changing hands for 17,000 guineas in October, the four-year-old looks a shrewd purchase judged on his winning debut for new connections in the north east. He should improve fitness-wise for that first run since the autumn and a 4lb rise for the victory looks more than fair.

16:45 (Musselburgh) Chealamy

Chealamy is expected to open her account at the fourth attempt in the Sky Bet Sunday Series Fillies' Handicap at Musselburgh. Not beaten all that far when down the field on her racecourse debut at Yarmouth last summer, the James Ferguson-trained grey raised her game to finish fourth at Leicester next time and went up another notch when occupying the same finishing position on what proved to be her final juvenile outing at Newmarket. The daughter of Siyouni made her reappearance and handicap debut on the all-weather at Southwell a few weeks ago and was just unfortunate to bump into a well treated Godolphin-owned favourite from Charlie Appleby's yard in Mountain Song. Chealamy was no match for the winner on the day, but knuckled down to finish best of the rest and also proved the mile is within his compass stamina-wise. She is only a pound higher for a return to turf and that minor rise is negated and then some by the 5lb claim of the excellent Billy Loughnane, so Ferguson's filly should prove hard to beat.

17:15 (Musselburgh) Arrange

Arrange is of clear interest in the Sky Bet Sunday Series Middle Distance Handicap. The Martin Todhunter-trained five-year-old bolted up over the course and distance in August, with a seven-and-a-half-length success earning her a 10lb hike in the ratings. She proved she can still be competitive from her elevated mark in her next two races, though, finishing third behind progressive stayer Wise Eagle at Redcar before filling the runner-up spot at Pontefract on her final start of 2022. Arrange should be competitive again if fit enough to do herself justice after seven months off.

17:45 (Musselburgh) Urban Sprawl

Urban Sprawl can pick up where he left off to complete his hat-trick in the Sky Bet Sunday Series 3YO Mile Handicap. The Iffraaj colt was kept busy as a juvenile, running eight times between May and September, but results at the end of the campaign prove it did him no harm. In all he visited to the winner's enclosure on three occasions and like so many horses from the Johnston yard, he displayed a willing attitude from the front to score by a head at Sandown and a nose at Ascot in his last couple of races. With the marginal step up in trip from seven furlongs to a mile expected to suit, Urban Sprawl will take some pegging back once more.
