HOPS AND POPS: put a disappointing debut behind her when making all to beat Gold Cup entry Propero in a Folkestone novice chase on Tuesday. This highly rated former point-to-pointer looks sure to progress further. (R Alner)

THE GOLFING CURATE: took a novice hurdle race at Folkestone by a distance on Tuesday. Obviously prefers the smaller obstacles to the fences he has encountered for most of this season. Can follow up in same grade. (R Rowe)

THE PREMIER EXPRES: got head in front for first time when battling home from a big field at Catterick and may now gain in confidence to win again. (W Bentley)
