Eynhallow is progressing at a rate of knots and a 6lb penalty should not be enough to stop him in the Watch Racing UK Anywhere Handicap at Sandown.

Roger Charlton's inmate showed glimpses of ability in maidens last season and resumed winning ways over course and distance eight days ago.

Ellthea can put an unfortunate experience behind her by winning the Longines Irish Champion Weekend EBF Stallions Star Stakes.

Karl Burke's filly was due to run in a Listed race at Newmarket a few weeks ago but tried to escape under the stalls and had to be withdrawn.

That will have been no fun for her, but it might turn out for the best as it would have taken a remarkable performance to beat Richard Fahey's hugely impressive winner Dance Diva.

Ellthea looked promising herself, though, when winning at Carlisle last time out.

Fourth on her debut at Windsor behind the smart Out Of The Flames, she showed the benefit of that run in Cumbria.
