Steve Mullen guides you through Monday’s racing from Ayr, Cartmel, Beverley and Windsor
REGULATOR made a nice start to his career when a close-up second at Beverley last time out. He was asked to make up a lot of ground quickly and shaped as though this step up from 6f would suit.

CHEENI has been knocking on the door and was again on the premises at Musselburgh last time out.
His young rider may have held him up for a little too long there over 5f and he should be suited a bit better by this extra furlong.
SAHREEJ has been running well in better races than this, including when beaten less than a length at The Curragh last time out.
That was over 6f but he’s at home at this distance and is well handicapped taking his rider’s claim into account.

RACING IN SHOCK
Stalls handler Stephen Yarborough dies after accident with starting stalls at Haydock
WE RACED FOR ‘YARBIE’
Racing unites to honour stalls handler Stephen Yarborough who was killed on Friday
Cathy Gannon keen to start new career as she is forced to retire from the saddle due to injury
INGLORIOUS did well to finish third here last time considering he didn’t get the run of the race. He likes this distance and goes on any ground.
He still looks on a fair mark and should go well in an open race.
CRAZY TORNADO is coming down the weights and looked close to a win when a close fifth here last time out.
He’s had a bit more help from the handicapper despite that good effort and this trip suits him well.
4.40 – Mullen’s star bet
BARWELL is gunning for a hat-trick and has every chance of pulling it off. He saw out this distance well when winning nicely at Haydock last time and a 7lb hike in the weights is fair enough.
All ground comes the same and he is still on the upgrade.
BRAES OF LOCHALSH has been threatening to win for a while and this looks his weakest recent assignment. He went for home too early here last time and was run down in the closing stages.
But he likes this trip and handles the ground so this could be the day.
