STAR IN FLIGHT looked pretty ring rusty on his first start in 11 months but an improved effort is expected in the racinguk.

com Beginners’ Chase at Catterick.

The six-year-old was a winner over hurdles at Sedgefield last November but was then off the track until reappearing at Carlisle in October.

He jumped well in the main that day, but was just found wanting when the pace turned up a notch and his rider was not too hard on him, letting him come home a distant fourth.

Donald McCain has given him plenty of time to recover from those exertions and normal improvement would see him on the premises here.

Sambelucky made a satisfactory return from a long lay off at Sedgefield and can go one place better in the Handicap Chase.

Returning from 546 days on the sidelines, Keith Reveley’s charge was beaten five lengths by Pistol Basc, who was in receipt of a healthy chunk of weight.

Sambelucky kept on well that day and remains on a handy mark.

Addictive Dream ended a lengthy barren spell at Lingfield last time and he can make it a quickfire double in the Compare Bookmakers At bookmakers.co.uk Handicap back at the Surrey venue.

Uramazin is an interesting recruit for Philip Hide and looks the pick in the Coral App Download From The App Store Conditions Stakes.

Pearl Spectre boasts Classic entries for next term so it would be disappointing if he could not land the 32Red Nursery Handicap on his first try in this sphere.

Miss Blakeney is worth a chance as she returns from a lengthy absence in the Betdaq 1st UK Race Commission Free Handicap at Kempton.

Cootehill loves it at Ludlow and he can once again take a leading role at his favourite track in the Boyne Cup.

The nine-year-old has won twice at the course and is very rarely out of the shake up there, so he must be respected despite not having got his head in front since March.

He won off 124 that day and his luckless recent streak means he is off just a 1lb higher mark here.

Cootehill turned in a fine effort to be beaten just under five lengths on his most recent outing over course and distance and should go well again for the Nigel Twiston- Davies team.

Pass The Time is another to make a quick reappearance in the Racing UK Mares’ Handicap Hurdle following her 11- length triumph last week.

Trainer Neil Mulholland is obviously anticipating a steep rise for that comfortable success and would sooner take his chance again under the standard 7lb extra rather than wait for his charge to be reassessed.
