Plenty of interest at final meeting of season
The Sir Henry Cecil-trained Noble Mission will be one of the top attractions as Great Yarmouth stages its final meeting of the season today.
A fascinating eight-race card also includes top jockeys Frankie Dettori, Kieren Fallon, Ryan Moore, Jamie Spencer and Tom Queally plus runners from the leading stables across the country for a fitting finale.
Noble Mission, Frankel's younger brother, makes his eagerly awaited debut in the Division One of the British Stallion Studs Supporting British Racing EBF Maiden Stakes (2.30). Despite being more backward than 'Superhorse' Frankel, Noble Mission has been running well in recent gallops to suggest he can make a good impression on his course debut.
Earlier Ryan Moore could have a quick double with Commend (1.30) and Traveller's Tales (2.00).
Commend is given a chance on his course debut in the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes (1.30). The Sir Michael Stoute-trained colt is well regarded by his trainer and has been given time to develop over the course of the season. Some good reports from the Newmarket gallops make Commend an interesting debutant.

Richard Hannon's Traveller's Tales, owned by the Queen, looks the value in the Oddschecker.com Nursery (2.00). After being beaten by a head in her previous start at Kempton this filly is sure to be there or thereabouts again with Moore in the saddle.
Dettori's mount Ruban is given the nod in the Division Two of British Stallion Studs Supporting British Racing EBF Maiden Stakes (3.00). This colt comes from the in-form stable of Mahmood Al Zarooni, who has had a cracking strike-rate with his two-year-olds this season.

Comrade Bond is the selection in the Aylsham Slurry Services Handicap (3.30). Despite still being a maiden this gelding has been unlucky in his last few starts, having finished second on three occasions – the last over six furlongs here. Hopefully compensation awaits over the extra furlong.
The Nigel Tinkler-trainied Pursuing looks a punt in the Worth digibet.com Handicap (4.00). The three-year-old showed signs of ability after being placed in her last two starts and can hopefully go one better with Fallon in the saddle.
The oddschecker.mobi Handicap (4.30) looks a wide open contest, with Bateleur the tentative selection. This Mick Channon-trained gelding has been consistent in sprints this season and after finishing second on his last three starts, deserves a change of luck in this competitive event.
The season finishes with the Best Odds At oddschecker.com Handicap (5.00). Kames Park is given a chance after an eye-catching run at Kempton last time out when a fast finishing fifth. Hopefully a step-up in trip will see further improvement.
