PERRAULT impressed with a six-length maiden win last time and he can take the next step up the ladder in the Slug And Lettuce Mid-Week-Meet Handicap at Sandown.

Ralph Beckett’s charge is bred to be a pretty smart individual with his dam being a half-sister to the top-class Grand Lodge among others while his half-sister has shown up well in Grade One company in America.

Perrault is some way short of those kind of achievements but he has shown up well on his two starts to date, finishing second at Newbury towards the back end of last term before reappearing in fine style at Chepstow in May.

While only a moderate event, Perrault easily accounted for the runner-up who has since gone on to win again, a comment which also applies to the last home that day. Clearly Perrault was a good deal better than his rivals and an initial mark of 87 reflects the promise he showed, but he looks capable of defying that mark before moving up the tree once again.

Pyjama Party looks a likely type in the Maxilead Lee Briers Kilimanjaro Challenge Handicap at Haydock.

Placed on his first three maiden outings, William Haggas’s runner finally got his head in front at Ripon in early July, when he more than had the measure of the reopposing Glad Tidings off level weights.

Pyjama Party had five lengths in hand that day and even though he concedes 5lb to his old rival this time, the ease of his victory suggests that the form should be confirmed.

He finished second at Sandown last week but was not beaten far by a very promising type and the fact he is out again quickly should be noted.

Phyllis Maud can land the James Ross Jewellers Fillies’ Handicap at Brighton for Simon Crisford.

The former Godolphin supremo has made a fine start to his training career and this daughter of Halling supplied him with a win at Bath last month.

While her victory was only in a modest event and achieved in merely workmanlike style, the handicapper has not gone too mad and Phyllis Maud should duly be able to cope with her revised rating.

Faddwa can repeat her recent Wolverhampton maiden success in the #FollowUs On Twitter At WolvesRaces Fillies’ Handicap back at Dunstall Park.

Quadriga is the pick in the Mansfield Town FC Raceday 2nd September Handicap at Southwell, while Lily Moreton should be thereabouts in the bet365 Handicap at Newcastle.
