Jamie Spencer has been in tremendous form since parting company with Aidan O'Brien and he can be on the mark again with Tag Team in the Eventguard Handicap over five furlongs at Yarmouth this afternoon.

David Flood has really made a name for himself in the last 12 months or so and his gelding returned to winning ways when dropped into claiming company over this trip at Lingfield last time.

Although he's back in handicap company, this is only a modest race featuring mainly exposed performers and he has shown on sand that he's more than capable of figuring from this sort of mark.

Vince Smith also made a good impression in his first full season with a training licence last year and his all-weather winner Kingston Harbour is interesting in the Express Cafes Handicap over a mile and a quarter.

This dual all-weather winner has run creditably without having the rub of the green at Wolverhampton on his last two starts and his latest third to True Companion and Lazzaz has been franked by subsequent wins from that pair.

He's unexposed on turf but is well worth a wager from this lower grass rating and he's taken to beat Dance To My Tune, who ran well when second to Greenwich Meantime at Doncaster last week.

Mark Johnston has started the season in good form and he's fancied to have a double with Mr Rooney in the European Breeders Fund Maiden over five furlongs and Desert Omen in the seven furlong maiden an hour later.

The former, who cost 20,000 euros and has several winners in his pedigree, holds an entry in the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury in July so it's reasonable to assume he's been showing a fair bit at home and market support will increase confidence.

Desert Omen, a half brother to July Stakes winner Rich Ground, was too green to do himself justice on his debut at Lingfield behind a couple of more experienced sorts, but he shaped with a fair degree of promise and is entitled to be better for the run.

At Southwell Mick Easterby could be the trainer to follow and he's fancied to get on the scoresheet with Reversionary in the Daly Thompson Banded Stakes over a mile and with Mataa in the Linford Christie Banded Stakes over six furlongs.

Reversionary tends to race keenly but is a course and distance winner and will be suited by the return to this track after a below-par run at Wolverhampton on his latest start.

Mataa has shown ability in three starts and shaped as though the return to six will suit after an encouraging run in maiden company over five furlongs at Southwell on his most recent start.

As he's only had three starts, he's open to a fair bit more improvement than most of today's rivals and he's taken to get the better of recent winner Radlett Lady.

At Wolverhampton the best bet on the card could be On The Trail in the Celebrate At Dunstall Park Selling Stakes over five furlongs.

David Chapman's speedster shaped as though better than the bare form, having set a strong pace at Pontefract over six furlongs last week, and the return to the minimum trip will be in his favour.
