15:20 Hamilton

Flying Moon won this race last season and ran well enough when third last time out to suggest he holds a strong chance of notching his third course and distance success here today. He has been eased 2lbs on the back of his effort last time out, meaning he arrives here 4lbs below his last winning mark, and is re-united with jockey Paddy Mathers who has been in the saddle for four of his prior career wins.

Caballero hasn't won in almost three years but is well treated on his best form and managed a decent second in a seller here at Hamilton earlier in the month so looks the most likely to capitalise should our selection fail to fire, while a mention should also go to Gainsburg who was a shade disappointing last time out but won over course and distance in July, his sole career victory to date, and a return to the Scottish venue could see him step forwards again.



19:00 Newcastle

Triple Jaye got the better of Lord Of The Glen when they met at Musselburgh in August before following up with victory over course and distance next time out, however could only manage fifth off her revised mark at Ayr two weeks back and looks a little vulnerable now returning to the All-Weather so preference is for Lord Of The Glen who won this race last year and arrives here on the back of his sixth course and distance victory gained just last week. He escapes a penalty for that success and should again get a decent pace to aim at so looks to hold an excellent chance of retaining his crown.

Seven time course and distance winner Another Angel had looked to have lost his way but a solid second following wind surgery at Wolves last time out suggests he could be the pick of the remainder now returning to Newcastle.
