Sky Sports News racehorse On Demand will return to the racetrack at Southwell this weekend and trainer Andrew Balding says she's got every chance in the race.

The filly finished sixth on her debut at Salisbury in September but needed several weeks of recuperation before being hit by a lung infection at the end of last year which kept her out until now.

On Demand will make her second appearance at the 4.10pm Ladbrokes Maiden Stakes this Sunday and all the staff at Park House Stables are pleased with the way she's been progressing

Jockey David Probert said: "Southwell is quite a tricky little track; it all depends on how you break. She's grown up a lot and has the experience to go handy and get back and hopefully she'll enjoy it."

While trainer Andrew Balding added: "She broke very alertly from the stalls at Salisbury which again I think is important particularly with the all-weather racing.

"A decent start is imperative on turning tracks and I hope if she can break on terms and travel well she'd have every chance in the race."
