MAGGIES ANGEL can wing it for Richard Fahey in the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury.

The handler has landed this huge prize twice in recent years and has another big chance with this filly who bolted up on her debut at Ripon in April.

REALIZE (1.50) can complete a hat-trick in the Bathwick Tyres Handicap.

The seven-year-old seemed to have peaked for Stuart Williams but has recorded back-to-back wins at Bath and Yarmouth since joining David Simcock. Top man Ryan Moore is an eyecatching booking for the tough gelding who is still on a decent mark despite another 4lb hike.

MOUNT LOGAN (2.25) is the safest bet in a trappy renewal of the Steventon.

Roger Varian's gelding is a proven Listed performer and put in his best run this season when third to the progressive Lord Yeats in the Fred Archer over 1m4f at Newmarket.

MAGICAL MEMORY (3.00) can make his class tell in the Hackwood.

Charlie Hills' star is top-class at best and bounced back from his Royal Ascot blowout when outpointing Kachy in a conditions' event at Haydock two weeks ago.
