STEP SUN; NEWSBOY'S ITV SELECTIONS; Dalgleish star to put heat on rivals on way to bigger things.
ALRIGHT SUNSHINE should light up Haydock today and rack up a hat-trick by beating 16 opponents for the Betfair Exchange Old Borough Cup Handicap (3.35).
A three-time bumper winner, Keith Dalgleish's son of Casamento has landed three of his five outings on the Flat, including the last two in handicap company.
Punters made Alright Sunshine the 4-7 favourite to prove too good for a BHA rating of 84 at Ripon in the middle of July, and he made no mistake with a threequarter-length supremacy over Mutamaded.
The handicapper reacted with a 4lb rise but Alright Sunshine, stepping up from 12 furlongs to this afternoon's trip of a mile and three-quarters, followed up at Musselburgh last time out, beating Jabbaar by a length and a quarter.
Danny Tudhope's mount is 5lb higher here, but has plenty of improvement to come and can take this on his way to even bigger prizes.
A drop in class should d h kf SHARJA BRIDGE do the trick for in the The Betfair Exchange Superior Mile Stakes (2.25).
His last two visits to the track have seen the Roger Variantrained son of Oasis Dream finish down the field in Group 1 company when ninth to Lord Glitters in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot and 13th to Mustashry in Newbury's Lockinge Stakes.
But, prior to those defeats, Sharja Bridge - who has been gelded in the interim - finished a half-length second to the ill-fated Beat The Bank in the Group 2 bet365 Mile at Sandown, and this is his level. The Sprint Cup card opens with the Better Odds On The Betfair Exchange Handicap (1.50), in which ELYSIAN FLAME should appreciate the chance to tackle a mile and three-quarters.
Ascot's Lavazza Handicap (3.55) is a good opportunity for BAASEM to go in again after wins at Lingfield and Doncaster.
TABARRAK went under to Salute The Soldier at Goodwood but can gain his revenge in the Cunard Handicap (2.45).
At Kempton, Best Solution makes his comeback in the September Stakes (2.05), but preference is for all-weather specialist MOOTASADIR, while MOTAWAJ is the choice in the London Mile Handicap Series Final (3.15).
Keith Dalgleish's Alright Sunshine is expected to complete a treble this afternoon A BIT OF ALRIGHT
