Consistent Ranger ready to claim at Kempton

DARK RANGER looked an unlucky loser at Kempton last time, but he can right the record with victory in the 32Red Handicap back at that track.

Tim Pitt's charge was sent off favourite at the Sunbury venue last month but he endured a nightmare journey, with Jamie Spencer finding himself behind a wall of horses two furlongs out. But Dark Ranger kept on well to finish a length second.

The handicapper has put him up 3lb for that defeat but Dark Ranger is a consistent type and will certainly give punters a good run for their money.

Laugh Out Loud looked a bit green on her racecourse bow but was only narrowly defeated by Roedean in the finish.

The Clodovil filly only really started to get the hang of things in the closing stages and did well to finish just a head adrift.

Laugh Out Loud looks a winner in waiting.

Sylas Ings looked good value for his one-length winning margin at Kempton last week and can follow up in the 32RedBet.com Handicap.

He must contend with a 6lb penalty but still looks appealing.

Dubaianswer has made a good start for new trainer Tony Coyle and she can continue to pay her way in the Thousands of Sports Experiences At bluesq.com Handicap at Southwell.

She was a creditable fifth on her debut for Coyle before coming good at just the second time of asking over this course and distance. A 5lb rise does not look too harsh and Dubaianswer can acquit herself well once again.

Fluctuation can make it a hat-trick in the Play Roulette At bluesq.com Handicap.

The four-year-old has jumped 12lb in the handicap for those two wins and while he must surely be reaching the edge of his comfort zone, he should be able to strike again.

Red Tanber was unlucky to bump into an unexposed, well-handicapped rival last time but he can regain the winning thread in the TurfTV Novices' Handicap Chase at Musselburgh.

Prince Of Pirates is the choice in Leicester's Cavalry Novices' Limited Handicap Chase.
