More Like It, trained near Malton by Peter Niven, heads to Market Rasen tomorrow in a bid to complete a notable hat-trick.

The ex-Irish gelding rattled up a brace of quick wins last month, opening his account at Catterick and following up under a penalty at Newcastle.

He has already proved himself a bargain, having cost Niven only 4,400 guineas at Ascot Sales last August.

Although he has top weight to carry tomorrow, More Like It is fancied to live up to his name by obliging again in the Handicap Chase. The excellent Brian Hughes again has the mount.

Hughes also has good prospects aboard Fortunate Isle in the Middle Rasen Handicap Hurdle.

Richard Fahey’s gelding came good on his latest start at Newcastle when battling on gamely to beat Kingsdale Orion in a photo-finish.

There may be more to come from this former winning Flat handicapper and he should make a bold bid to follow up.

In the TurfTV Beginners’ Chase, a note should be made of nap selection Bold Ransom, trained by Keith Reveley.

A winner over hurdles at Newcastle on his final start last season, Bold Ransom showed his potential as a chaser when finishing third to the useful Skipper’s Brig at Carlisle on his fencing debut last month.

He is entitled to have benefitted from that outing and is napped to show his rivals the way home. Trainer’s son James Reveley has the mount.

Sycho Fred, a winner on this course at the end of last month, has a good chance of following up in the Get Racing UK In Your Pub Handicap Chase, but marginal preference is for The Randy Bishop, also a winner on this track last month. Trained by Tony Carroll he will be partnered by capable 7lb claimer Lee Edwards.

At Kempton’s all-weather Flat meeting, Middleham maestro Mark Johnston can make his presence felt with Bushveld in the Blue Square Mobile Handicap.

This son of Cape Cross is going the right way and was a two-lengths winner on his third and latest start at Wolverhampton.

Now into handicap company, he does not look unfairly treated and he is fancied to double his tally under Joe Fanning.

In the Blue Square Poker Handicap, River Kirov goes for his fourth win off the reel.

Trained at Newmarket by the astute Michael Wigham, the six-year-old has been in terrific form lately and, although the handicapper is sure to catch up with him before much longer, he has solid claims on tomorrow’s prize.

War And Peace, runner-up to River Kirov at Wolverhampton 11 days ago, when beaten by less than a length, has an obvious chance in the Blue Square Casino Maiden Stakes.

Jane Chapple-Hyam’s five-year-old has only to repeat his latest performance to go one better here and advertise the claims of his conqueror River Kirov later on the card.

Also worthy of interest are the speedy Just The Lady (2.20), trained by David Nicholls near Easingwold, and Dontpaytheferryman (5.20), who is overdue a winning turn.
