Bimble can show her rivals a clean pair of heels in the Call Star Sports On 08000521321 Handicap at Nottingham.

Henry Candy's filly is a thoroughly unexposed type, with just three runs under her belt to date, but she has certainly shown more than a modicum of ability in the course of those limited outings.

The three-year-old had just one juvenile start in 2019 - and she did not enjoy much luck that day, before keeping on well under hands and heels to finish fourth in what was an informative experience.

Bimble then had to wait until June to get back on track, but she impressed with a ready maiden success at Goodwood, winning by three and three-quarter lengths - with two subsequent winners finishing in behind.

Candy has not hurried this daughter of Acclamation, and she then did not reappear again until earlier this month, when she finished a half-length second in what was a very competitive fillies' handicap. The winner was not far off in Listed company since, while the fourth was a winner at Newmarket last week, giving the form a solid look - and a 3lb rise for Bimble still leaves her at the right end of the weights.

Mishal Star's previous efforts have started to read very nicely indeed, and she is the pick in the Download The Star Sports App Jockey Club Nursery Handicap.

Her initial two-and-three-quarter-length fourth at Newbury last month got a massive boost when the victor that day, Alcohol Free, bagged Group One glory last Saturday.

Mishal Star was a real eyecatcher too, making plenty of late progress after a slow start, and she built on that promise when prevailing at Kempton at the start of the month.

It may not have been the strongest contest there, but Mishal Star was a clear four-length winner without ever really coming under pressure, and an initial mark of 81 could prove generous.

Eagle Creek can secure his first win for new connections in the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Handicap at Kempton.

Winner of one of his eight runs for the Crisford team, Eagle Creek fetched 21,000 guineas at the sales in July - and he may yet prove a decent buy.

Well beaten on his initial start for William Knight, he showed much more promise on his most recent run at Chelmsford, perhaps paying the price for racing a bit keenly as he had to settle for third place in a decent race.

The handicapper has dropped him 2lb for that run, so he is now 13lb below his best mark of 96 and could be well treated.

Master The Stars let down favourite backers last time, but can be given another chance in the Try Our New Runner Boost At Unibet Handicap.

A stronger gallop here can help him get back on the winning track.
