Master Malarkey bids to give Norfolk trainer, Christine Dunnett, success for third year running of the Mercury Online Handicap at 3.30, as Great Yarmouth Racecourse stages its annual Bank Holiday Family Fun Day on Sunday.

This four year-old gelding has yet to win a race, but showed enough promise when second at Brighton on Monday to suggest a win is not too far away. That day, Master Malarkey made a bold bid from the front on this drop back in trip, and with jockey Chris Catlin booked once more, he is sure to be thereabouts and hopefully give Christine her third successive victory of this race.

The afternoon gets underway at 1.50, with the E.B.F. Eastern Daily Press Maiden Stakes, for two year-olds, in which Michael Jarvis-trained, Ancien Regime, looks worth taking a chance on. This well-bred individual, comes from a stable who's juveniles must always respected at Great Yarmouth and should go close on his racecourse debut.

What A Treasure, from the Luci Cumani yard, has a great chance in the Norwich Evening News Community Fillies' Handicap, off at 2.20. This Cadeaux Genereux - filly has already twice a winner over seven furlongs on soft ground this season, including an impressive win at Leicester earlier in the month and has the scope to take this prize on Sunday.

The Great Yarmouth Mercury Handicap at 2.55, looks a wide open affair, in which Cornerstone is the tentative selection. This lightly raced three year-old, was a clear cut winner at Lingfield last month and if he can reproduce that form tomorrow - when he steps in trip - he sure not to be far away again come the finish.

Trainer, Ed McMahon, has been cracking form this season and Smirfy`s Silver should add to his tally of winners tomorrow in the Handicap, off at 4.05. This bay gelding has been in good form this season, finishing first and second from his last two starts at the east coast track, and should give another good account tomorrow.

The afternoon ends at 5.15, with the Betfair Apprentice Training Handicap, in which Desert Hawk makes most appeal. This six year-old gelding has been placed in each of his three starts at Great Yarmouth this season, including a course and distance winner back in June, and has strong claims again.
