A weekly list of horses to follow:

LAMBENT: stayed on very strongly to catch strong favourite Stimulant in the dying strides over five furlongs at Ripon on Thursday. Should win again over an extra furlong, particularly when conditions are testing. (E Weymes).

MUTAMANNI: stayed on into eighth without ever threatening to trouble the principals in the one-mile Wood Ditton Stakes at Newmarket on Wednesday. Clearly has ability, but this half- brother (by Sadler's Wells) to the Derby winner Secreto will do his winning over at least 10 furlongs. (W R Hern).

WISHAM: never a factor in a seven-furlong maiden at Newmarket on Thursday, but his 'duck egg' for finishing seventh disguises a promising run. Picked up ground throughout the last furlong there, and this colt, thought worthy of a Derby entry by his trainer, is another who will profit from a step up in trip. (B Hanbury).
