There are four meetings in Britain on Friday and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway is back with his best bets across the cards.
The Northumbrian Wateraid Handicap (2.10) kicks off the card at Newcastle and it's worth taking a chance on INTERNATIONAL LAW returning to form and recording another course win.
All of his all-weather victories have come on Tapeta and the nine-year-old is down to a mark of 51. That is only 3lb higher than when he ran out an easy winner at Southwell last October.
International Law has been running into form on his recent starts and caught the eye doing good late work when a strong-finishing fourth of 12 over 1m2f at this course last month.
That is strong form in the context of this weak race as the runner-up is a subsequent winner and the fifth has twice run well in defeat since. International Law has escaped a rise as well.
He stays this longer trip and might even need the stiffer test to show his best nowadays. That gives hope he can record a tenth career victory in a race that shouldn't take much winning.
The 1m6f handicap (4.55) at Haydock is a cracking staying event and it provides a good opportunity for ALPINE STROLL, who has dropped down to a mark from which he can win.
The five-year-old is only 1lb higher than when last successful at Nottingham last season and he ran his best race of the year off this rating of 74 when second at Sandown in June.
The front two pulled four-lengths clear that day and the winner, Alnilam, scored again next time.
Alpine Stroll has been below form in two starts since, but those efforts came in Class 3 company and he now drops two rungs in grade into a Class 5 event. This is much easier.
The selection handles any ground and trainer Ed de Giles has booked Daniel Muscutt for the ride.
This will be only the third time in the last five years that he has ridden for the yard and one of those finished second. That convinces me that today may be the day for Alpine Stroll.
The SIG Building Solutions Handicap (9.00) brings the curtain down on the evening card at Kempton and the return to the all-weather might do the trick for the class act LIBERATED LAD.
The five-year-old has a better record on sand (4-18) than on turf (2-20), but has been running well on grass recently. He was successful off just a 2lb lower mark in a 1m2f handicap at Nottingham in August and ran a solid race when third over that trip at Yarmouth last time.
He takes a big step up in distance this time, but was nearest at the finish when beaten just a neck over this 2m trip at Lingfield in February and that was off a mark 2lb higher than this.
That gives hope he will be suited by the greater test of stamina and he may hold a class edge.
