Back to our own horses, we have a raider at Redcar on Monday. Art Beat showed good promise at Windsor on her debut and it'd be nice if she could put in a respectable run again.
Three horses will be heading to Wolverhampton on Tuesday. Automotive seems to save his best for the all-weather nowadays and he has the perfect opportunity to win again now. He does need a lot of luck in running but there's nothing to say that he shouldn't be in the shake-up.
Silver Alliance couldn't make his appointment at Doncaster on Friday but at least it means he can go to Wolves a fresh horse on Tuesday. He is still quite high in the weights after an easy win at Brighton in the summer but he is more than capable on his day and in good order at home so hopefully he can run well.

Also learning fast our are two yearling colts who went away to pre-training last month. They are due to return this week but we went over to see how they're getting on the other day. Both are being ridden and look like they are enjoying themselves. The Mount Nelson colt who we bought as a foal looks splendid and really carries himself well. Our home-bred Mungo still looks very playful but seems to be getting the hang of things!

THREE TO FOLLOW UPDATE
There are just two weeks left to collect those points and The Ducking Stool's win helped a lot of people out but didn't alter the top 5 placings.
