Here's a list of Planet Sport's picks from racing at Wetherby on Sunday, April 24. 13:45 World Without Love 14:20 Rose's Girl

14:55 Montassib

15:30 Big Narstie

16:05 Prince Of Abington

17:10 King Of Tonga

17:45 National Charter

14:55 Wetherby - Montassib

After winning an all-weather novice race over six furlongs on debut at Newcastle in September 2020, Montassib has been absent and subsequently gelded. Despite being inactive for 598 days now, William Haggas has enjoyed some excellent early-season form with Montassib and he can definitely return to winning ways in the Watch Racing TV In Stunning HD Novice Stakes at Wetherby. There's plenty of newcomers taking part in the race, and with Montassib already showing potential on his debut, there's no reason to expect a worse performance this time around.

16:05 Wetherby - Prince Of Abington

Prince Of Abington has so far claimed just one win in nine attempts, with that victory coming 18 months ago in a six-furlong novice race at Ascot.

But as a result of his luckless campaign last season - which still included some impressive placed efforts - the four-year-old has been dropped a couple of pounds for the Sixt Car & Van Hire Handicap. Following on from an impressive outing at Kempton last time out, there's every chance we can expect even more improvement at a lower weight in Wetherby.

17:10 Wetherby - King Of Tonga

Despite racking up the races last campaign, King Of Tonga had no luck when it came to winning any events. However, after moving to work under Declan Carroll, he struck at the first time of asking, finishing in front in a five-furlong handicap event in Pontefract two weeks ago. In his first run since then, King Of Tonga has been moved up 2lb, but the six-year-old still looks mightily impressive, and can make it back-to-back successes in Wetherby.
