Global Destination has shown an aptitude for soft ground and should handle conditions in the William Henry Albert Hedlington Memorial Handicap at Brighton.

It was good to soft when Ed Dunlop's three-year-old struck over this course in June, just two weeks after he won for the first time at Newbury.

The son of Slade Power coped with heavy ground at Epsom last time when he finished third to Zeyzoun after a 52-day break.

He is entitled to come on for that outing and can regain winning ways on Thursday.

Spantik stepped up on his Newcastle debut when getting off the mark in pleasing fashion at Lingfield.

Archie Watson's son of Canford Cliffs can continue his progress in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Novice Median Auction Stakes when he runs on turf for the first time in public.

Hooflepuff can triumph on his second start for Brian Ellison following his move from James Fanshawe's stable when he goes in the Hotel & Conferencing At Wolverhampton Apprentice Handicap at the Dunstall Park venue.

The Gale Force Ten gelding returns to the scene of his victory for his previous trainer last month, having run respectably at Newcastle for new connections when fourth four weeks ago.

Souter Johnnie can overcome 7lb extra for his first career victory at Kempton last week when he lines up for the Bet At totesport.com Nursery at Chelmsford.

Success came at the sixth attempt, and in his second race since having a wind operation.

The Richard Hughes-trained juvenile has started favourite in both those races, suggesting he is showing more ability at home now.

Hill Sixteen is about to embark on his most obvious vocation, in the Racing TV Chase at Carlisle. Sue Smith's Irish point-to-point winner looks a staying chaser of some potential in the making. This bare two-mile trip may not play entirely to his strengths but it is a fine starting point.
