PEARL ACCLAIM has served trainer David Griffiths well this winter and can continue the excellent work with victory in the feature at Southwell.

The Acclamation gelding has been successful three times over five furlongs at the Nottinghamshire venue since December and can make it four in the Betway Sprint Handicap.

Pearl Acclaim was raised 4lb for his latest triumph but has been dropped 2lb after finishing third over this course and distance on his latest start.

The handicapper has taken a bit of a chance, as it was not a bad run behind Something Lucky, and it would be no surprise to see today's nap selection get his head back in front under Franny Norton.

HELEN SHERBET has been a Southwell regular over the last three months, winning twice from five appearances and placed in two more.

She was beaten over a mile last time but is now back to seven furlongs, a trip over which she was successful in her previous race.

Trainer Karl Burke looks to have found another good opportunity for her in the Handicap, with Ben Curtis in the saddle.

BE MINDFUL may be one of the lesser lights at Charlie Hills' stable but the daughter of Invincible Spirit has shown a glimmer of ability in her last two starts to suggest she can do the business with Oisin Murphy on board.

She was only beaten two lengths when fifth to The Night King at Chelmsford and would not have to improve much on that performance to open her account in the 32Red Casino Handicap.

GENEROUS DAY can cope with a 6lb rise in the ratings to take the Read Noel Fehily at 188Bet Handicap Hurdle at Market Rasen, where a precautionary early course inspection was planned.

Henry Oliver's six-year-old was a tidy winner by two and a half lengths from Bowie over an extended two and a quarter miles on Boxing Day.

FLEMERINA can step up on her debut over fences and get off the mark in the Daily Racing Specials At 188Bet Mares' Handicap Chase.

THE DELRAY MUNKY can double up in the closing Wram Fabrications Handicap Hurdle at Sedgefield, where they were also planning a precautionary early inspection.

Iain Jardine's six-year-old mare absolutely bolted up at Ayr a week ago and will be hard to stop under a 7lb penalty as she steps up significantly in distance.
