YOU will have to wait until pretty late in the day for the 32Red Handicap at Kempton's evening meeting but SOLO MISSION can reward punters' patience in the 12-furlong heat.

A beautifully-bred individual, Solo Mission appears to have improved for a gelding operation over the winter and boasts a 50 per cent strike-rate for trainer William Haggas so far in 2017.

Beaten a length on his return to action in May, Solo Mission was soon off the mark at Carlisle the following month, running out a clear-cut winner of what was probably merely an average handicap event.

Waiting tactics were employed on that occasion, and again at Salisbury on his next start, but it proved hard work to make up ground from the rear and Solo Mission just could not land a telling blow.

That performance obviously tempered enthusiasm at Ripon but Solo Mission got back on the right track with victory by a two-and-a-half lengths, only really putting the matter to bed in the final furlong after kicking for home with over a quarter of a mile to run.

The handicapper has been a bit harsh in raising him 6lb for that win but Solo Mission clearly has more to give and can defy this perch of 80 as today's nap selection under Tom Queally.

CAROL has been consistency personified so far this term and she can keep up the good work in the 100% Profit Boost At Fillies' Handicap.

Ed Dunlop's runner may only have one victory to her name but she has also finished no worse than fourth in four other outings and remains thoroughly competitive on her current mark.

She was a bit disappointing when only fourth at Chepstow in July and the fact that Silvestre de Sousa eased her down ahead of the line, combined with a bit of a subsequent absence, suggests that was perhaps not her true form. James Doyle has today's ride.

CLEARLY counts Snow Bride among her relations and she must surely be a little better than her debut suggested as she tackles the Maiden Stakes, with Doyle again on board.

John Gosden has played a waiting game with this daughter of Invincible Spirit but even when she did finally make her racecourse debut at Windsor back in July, she looked in need of a bit more time still as she finished well down the field in a 10-furlong maiden.

She has been given that time to get over those exertions and it is interesting that Gosden drops back to a mile here.

RIGOLETTO is the pick in the Equestrian Surfaces Handicap at Chepstow.

Luca Cumani has given this runner an entry in the Cambridgeshire later this month and while he might struggle to make the cut, such an engagement suggests he is showing a bit of something at home.

He just grabbed third in the dying strides at Salisbury last time on quick ground but a little more ease in the surface here is a big plus.

GO ROO shaped well when third at Bath last month and can open his account in the first division of the 188Bet Maiden Stakes at Lingfield.
