Saeed bin Suroor: Fancied to strike with Momayyaz

Saeed bin Suroor: Fancied to strike with Momayyaz

Sky Bet

Anita Chambers is prepared to give Momayyaz another chance on Monday - she has a tip for every UK and Irish race taking place.

Momayyaz can make the most of the opportunity as she lines up in the Handicap at the Midlands track on Monday.

Saeed bin Suroor's charge looked all at sea when running over a mile at Goodwood, finishing six and a half lengths behind Saucy Minx after blatantly failing to handle the challenge of the Downs track.

That was a disappointing effort considering how well she had shaped in her two previous outings, finishing second in a Newmarket maiden before really starting to shine when winning on the Kempton Polytrack.

She beat Moonvoy a length and a half and the second has since gone on to frank the form by winning herself.

Momayyaz was given a mark of 88 following that performance but her Goodwood effort has seen her rating take a 2lb dip, another favourable factor as she tackles the Wolverhampton Tapeta.

Ahmad Al Subousi seems to get on well with this daughter of Elusive Quality and his 7lb claim only strengthens confidence.

Right Of Appeal has missed the target in his last eight starts but now appears to be back on an attractive mark for the Best In Handicap at Musselburgh.

A winner at Lingfield and Wolverhampton earlier in the year, Mark Johnston's charge carried an official mark of 71 back in May but has now dropped back to 67 after a handful of mixed performances.

While good enough to place on two occasions, he looked on the slide until turning in a reasonable effort at Beverley last month when finishing a fair fifth after making a bold bid from the front.

That marked something of a return to form so it could be dangerous to discount him.

Zebelini created quite a stir when winning at odds of 40/1 on her debut but she can follow up in the Best One Nursery Handicap.

Trained by Ilka Gansera-Leveque, the Zebedee filly had few supporters at Ripon but won what was probably only an average event in fine style.

Although only triumphing by a neck, Zebelini was hardly in top gear and still looked a bit unsure of the task in hand when the race began in earnest.

Her handler had viewed her as a Royal Ascot prospect until the filly had a growth spurt but with a bit of experience under her belt now, Zebelini can start to shine.

Top Offer should be primed for the Why's Harveys New Beer Called R Handicap at Brighton following a recent third place at Leicester.

Two wins in 17 starts is hardly the most inspiring statistic but his victory at Lingfield arrested the decline which began after he won on his debut for Roger Charlton back in August 2011.

Once held in serious regard, he was thought good enough to run in the 2000 Guineas two years ago but it quickly became apparent he was not up to that level and Peter Crate snapped him up for just £14,000 last August.

It took a while for him to repay that faith but a wind operation had seemingly worked the oracle when he won with a bit in hand at Lingfield in July before embarking on a short break.

Returned to action at Leicester earlier this month, he was given a bit too much to do and had to be content with third as he just could not get on terms with the leaders.

That run should have swept any cobwebs away, though, and Top Offer could be set for a good autumn with his confidence boosted.

BRIGHTON: 2.20 Little, 2.50 Royal Mizar, 3.20 Sweeping Rock, 3.50 Chanceuse, 4.20 Hawk Moth, 4.50 Top Offer, 5.20 Captain Ryan.

LISTOWEL: 2.35 Escapism, 3.05 Fix It, 3.35 Adeste Fideles, 4.05 Intense Style, 4.35 Solita, 5.05 Royal Shot, 5.35 Specific Gravity.

MUSSELBURGH: 2.10 Danot, 2.40 Zebelini, 3.10 Dialogue, 3.40 Right Of Appeal, 4.10 Deepsand, 4.40 Slick Indian, 5.10 Pavers Star.

WOLVERHAMPTON: 2.30 Polydamos, 3.00 Drastic Art, 3.30 White Flag, 4.00 Royal Trooper, 4.30 MOMAYYAZ (NAP), 5.00 Ruby Rose, 5.30 Lunar Knot, 6.00 Punk.

DOUBLE: Momayyaz and Right Of Appeal.
