A winner is always welcome, even at short odds so after Tuesday's success Alan Thomson is aiming to make it three winning days on the bounce with his selections for Nottingham on Wednesday.

Nottingham 4.00

ENGLAND EXPECTS (4.00) has been knocking on the door on her last two runs and looks sure to be in the mix at Nottingham.

This is an amateur riders' handicap over 1m 4f and Karl Burke's filly led over a furlong out in a similar contest at Doncaster last week before being overpowered by Tomahawk Kid.

Jamie Brace doesn't get many mounts (only six since January) but his last four rides read 3-1-1-2, and his 5lb claim is a bonus.

Royal Cosmic foiled a punt at big odds on Donnachies Girl at Musselburgh and she remains well treated chasing her hat-trick.

Nottingham 1.30

FINALE (1.30) could be the answer to a tricky Class 4 handicap.

Hughie Morrison's filly never looked happy around Windsor's twists and turns on quick ground last time but she scored over course and distance (soft) in June.

Finale was only caught close home by Uae Queen at Sandown and that is solid form as fifth horse Dynamic has since won.

Irish raider Pure Action has to be commended for consistency but it's hard to weigh up the merit of his form.

Monaadil returned from a four-month absence to run well in defeat at Yarmouth and is closely handicapped with Zeshov and also Off Art, who finished behind Zeshov at Redcar.

Course and distance winner Maratha finished third a month ago and has been dropped a pound.

Nottingham 2.00

I found it hard to split SWAHEEN (2.00) and St Mary's in the 1m 6f handicap.

Julie Camacho's gelding Swaheen travelled smoothly into contention at Haydock before stopping to a trot in the clinging mud.

Swaheen likes a bit of cut underfoot and he struck form in October last year when beating Brandon Castle (soft) over 1m 6f at York. He races off a 5lb lower mark here.

St Mary's has been admirably consistent and only lost out by a neck to Fire Jet over course and distance a fortnight ago.

James Fanshawe's maiden Master Archer is well in with St Mary's on a line through Melinoe on a previous outing but keeps finding one too good.
