Basem Bids To Continue Fine Form In Cracking Salisbury Contest

Saeed Bin Suroor's Basem was last seen bagging a comfortable one-and-a-half-length victory at Sandown Park and now the Godolphin raider will look to build on that effort this afternon when doing battle in Salisbury's Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Handicap at 3:55pm.

He will have some notable rivals to beat in this cracking 1m 1f 198y contest and Sir Michael Stoute's Alex Vino has been a consistent performer this term and has to be respected lower down the handicap, whilst the likes of Andrew Balding's top-weighted Soviet Rock and Luca Cumani's Ajmany are just another brace of lively players.

Elsewhere on the card, Astrophysics and Elysian Flyer duel in an intriguing match in the Bathwick Tyres Conditions Stakes at 4:30pm, whilst Eve Johnson Houghton's Panther Patrol will look to return to winning ways after failing to bag a sixth win on the spin last time out, and he is a major contender in the Vanarama Challenge Handicap at 5:00pm.

Nottingham will host some alternative Flat action this afternoon and Clive Cox's Raise Your Gaze will be a tough nut to crack in the competitive-looking Jockey Club Grassroots Middle Distance Series Final Handicap at 3:45pm, whilst Cox will saddle the top-weighted Unforgiving Minute in the Sponsor A Race At Nottingham Racecourse Handicap at 4:20pm.

Newcastle will round off the afternoon racing on the level on Wednesday, whilst Sligo will host a decent chasing card with the solitary fixture in Ireland, as Kempton Park round off the day with their traditional all-weather meeting kicking off at 5:45pm and finishing at 9:15pm.
