A weekly list of horses to follow: BEGGARS BANQUET: promising debut second to the well-regarded bumper winner Tom Brodie at Edinburgh on Tuesday. Sent off at 33-1 but was the only rival to make a race of it with the first and should be capable of winningin similar company. (P Beaumont)

LEGAL FICTION: beat some useful all-weather handicappers decisively at Wolverhampton on Wednesday to gain his second success in as many outings on the artifical surfaces. His stable excels at conjuring multiple wins from its inmates and this could develop into another example. (M Johnston)

TRONCHETTO: displayed considerable battling qualities when overcoming Trump and several other recent winners at Edinburgh on Tuesday. Has looked an improved performer this season and looks able to defy a further rise in the weights for this success. (J JO'Neill)
