Freddie Tylicki is always worth keeping an eye on at Great Yarmouth and the German-born jockey has plenty of good chances on the course’s seven-race card this afternoon.

In the opener at 2pm Tylicki rides trainer John Jenkins’ Whaleweigh Station in the maiden. Third at Lingfield in June, the gelding faces five rivals including Eleusis and Normanna.

Eleusis is from Chris Wall’s Newmarket yard under Ted Durcan and the filly will be looking to go one better than her recent second at Warwick.

Normanna hails from in-form Marco Botti’s yard under Martin Harley but the filly will have to overcome a break since December when third at Kempton.

Tylicki rides top weight Red Cossack in the 2.30pm maiden handicap. The gelding was fourth at Pontefract last time and faces a tough challenge from Mimi Luke and Great Wave.

Mimi Luke, the favourite for Harley and trainer Alan Bailey was fourth at the course last week after finishing second in her previous three races while Great Wave, Jamie Spencer riding David Simcock’s grey filly, hasn’t been seen since May.

Saturday’s Doncaster winner Frontline Phantom makes a quick return in the 3pm handicap under claimer Peter Sword for trainer Karl Burke.

Nifty Kier, Danny Brock riding for Phil McEntee has already won twice this season at the course and has real hat-trick claims while Mishrif and 10-year-old veteran Vainglory also hold chances.

Seven go over 11 furlongs for the 3.30pm handicap in which Tylicki rides Interconnection for Ed Vaughan.

The three-year-old was second at Doncaster in July although he can expect challenges from Rawoof, Chris Catlin for Rae Guest and Kinema, fourth at Great Yarmouth last week.

Robert Cowell has a reputation for being a top trainer of sprinters and he runs favourite Indian Tinker in the five-furlong handicap at 4pm under Liam Jones.

The five-year-old won at the course last week but faces a test from Alpha Delta Whisky, Harley on John Gallagher’s runner-up at Sandown and Warwick, and top weight Sleepy Blue Ocean, second at Nottingham last time.

The feature at 4.30pm sees seven contest the seven-furlong handicap in which Tylicki rides for James Fanshawe on Elizona, a Lingfield winner following second places at Salisbury and Great Yarmouth.

Apprentice Steve Gray takes weight off Imaginary World, a Wolverhampton winner while Glanely, Jack Mitchell for Martyn Meade also comes into the reckoning.

The finale is the apprentice handicap at 5.05pm when all eyes will be on Jonnie Skull’s 150th career appearance and his 30th race at the course.

The eight-year-old, under Joe Doyle for McEntee, recorded his seventh win at the track a fortnight ago.

Polar Forest from Richard Guest’s yard and Lewamy, Jenny Powell for John Best, are potential party-poopers during the last action of the day at the Norfolk course.
