You can set your watch by Kerry Lee’s ultra-reliable mare who has run a trio of cracking races in the last three weeks alone.

Her latest effort was a career-best victory in a Listed mares’ only event at Huntingdon where she got the better of the Irish hotpot Magic Of Light.

Happy Diva (2.40, nap) looks more than capable of stepping up in class successfully, especially as in her previous handicap she was third to the classy Cyrname, who went on to win the Grade One Betfair Ascot Chase.

Another race worth almost £30,000 to the winner takes place at Kelso and the in-form Paul Nicholls team can justify the long trip from Somerset by taking the prize with Getaway Trump (3.15, nb).

The likely favourite won novice hurdles at Plumpton and Exeter but it is his two more recent defeats which warrant his position at the head of the market for the Edinburgh Gin Premier Kelso Novices’ Hurdle.

Last time out in the very valuable Betfair Hurdle at Ascot, Getaway Trump ran a cracker to finish fourth behind Al Dancer.

The speedsters are out in force in the Betway Casino Handicap at Lingfield and Royal Birth (2.50, treble) is overdue a victory after two near-misses since the turn of the year.

He ran a super race to be beaten just three-parts of a length by Gorgeous Noora in Listed race over the course and distance last week, belying the fact that he is now on a losing run of 16 races since 2017.

That display was the Stuart Williams-based sprinter’s best run for some time and the drop back to a handicap bodes well, especially as he won this race in 2016.
