Mark Buckley and Tony Culhane, who teamed up successful with Armagnac at Sandown last week, can make a return visit to the winners enclosure with Distant Cousin at Redcar this afternoon.

The seven-year-old hasn't won for nearly two years but his resolution doesn't seem in any doubt and he's certainly slipped to a fair mark compared with the pick of his efforts in the last 12 months or so.

This mile and six furlong trip on fast ground is likely to be in his favour and he was anything but disgraced in a muddling contest at Newmarket when last seen in late July.

A decent pace will play to his strengths and he's taken to beat last week's Catterick winner Inchpast, who is improving steadily and is sure to go well, despite his penalty for that success.

Jilly Why is progressing well at present and can notch a quick-fire three timer by taking the Sharp Minds Betfair Apprentice Handicap over six furlongs.

The daughter of Mujadil made light of a 10lb rise in the weights when winning a strongly run five furlong handicap at Chester on Saturday, where she left the impression that the return to this trip would suit.

Frankie Dettori's presence in the North-East should ensure a better sized crowd than the norm for a Monday afternoon and he can be on the mark with Rasseem in the maiden fillies stakes and with newcomer Eshaadeh in the seven furlong maiden.

The filly had a subsequent winner back in third place when finishing second on her debut and may have found the easy ground against her when failing to build on that effort at Nottingham last time.

Eshaadeh, a well bred son of Storm Cat, is unlikely to be lacking fitness for this racecourse debut and won't have to be anything out of the ordinary to make an impression.

At Musselburgh, the progressive Jack Of Trumps looks the best bet on the card in the valuable Sharp Minds Betfair Musselburgh Gold Cup over a mile and a half.

Geoff Wragg's four-year-old showed the right attitude to land the hat-trick at Goodwood on his most recent start and, given there's a couple in this race that like to dominate, he should get the race run to suit.

Yenaled goes well at Musselburgh and can supplement his recent course win by taking the Sharp Minds Best Odds Premier Claimer over a mile and one furlong.

Kevin Ryan's gelding goes particularly well for inexperienced riders and had today's pilot in the saddle when beating the in-form and regular winner Bailieborough by a length and a quarter.

The mile classified event half an hour later looks a tricky event but, although he's got a bit to find strictly at the weights, the suggestion is the in-form Joshua's Gold, whose style of racing is well suited to this tight course.
