IMPRESSOR (14.05 Sandown, 7f handicap)

Well suited by cut in the ground and run a string of good races, including when third on heavy ground in the Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes at Newmarket at the end of last season.

Ability to handle that ground should stand him in good stead, while a wind operation since his latest run could eke out further improvement.

Marcus Tregoning’s horses have been running really well since the sport returned and he could be celebrating a decent win here.

MISS CELESTIAL (14.25 Newbury, 7f Listed)

Ran a decent race at this level on her comeback, finishing fifth over a furlong shorter. Travelled well but was seemingly tapped for toe when push came to shove and the return to seven furlongs looks certain to suit.

Has good form on soft ground, finishing second at Listed level behind Di Fede at Ascot and a repeat of that run will be good enough to go close here.

MUSTARRID (15.15 Sandown, 1m handicap)

Has done well since joining Ian Williams after an ill-fated spell in the Middle East under trainer Doug Watson.

Looked a horse to follow when winning at Nottingham on his penultimate start and race wasn’t run to suit on the all-weather last time.

Worth noting that he ran good races off of higher marks when with Richard Hannon a couple of years ago so there could still be wriggle room off this mark.

ZAAKI (15.35 Newbury, 1m Group 3)

Represents master trainer Sir Michael Stoute, who has been firing in the winners since racing resumed nearly a fortnight ago. Stoute has been operating at a strike-rate above 20 per cent and Zaaki has the right profile for this race. 

Twice a winner at this level, he runs particularly well on his first run back after a break in Britain, winning both his starts after layoffs of more than 200 days. Returning after 188 days off the track can be viewed as a positive and he can be expected to run well.
