With some difficult races to solve on ITV on Saturday, Alan has picked out a pair of horses to back on a good card at Lingfield...
"The steady pace at a crucial point in his latest effort was against him over track and trip but the third (Furzig) has come out to win since."
Simon and Ed Crisford's Make It Rain is a really progressive filly, and she fully justifies her position at the top of the market, and I think she can go in again.
She landed a decent race at Wolverhampton last time and the form looks good. She sat handy to collect her fourth AW win in five starts.
A return to Lingfield should keep the improvement going from 97, as she could be worth a few pounds more considering she took to the surface superbly when producing a tidy display at the track in November.
The 4yo looks smart and should have enough to deal with a decent field.
Dragon and Doyle look an ideal match
Hollie Doyle rides Scarlet Dragon for a cracking little 1m4f Handicap, and whilst he has plenty on his plate from top weight, I am hoping Doyle can guide him home.
The selection was a Royal Ascot winner in the summer with a fine staying performance in soft conditions and stays the trip strongly.
The steady pace at a crucial point in his latest effort was against him over track and trip but the third (Furzig) has come out to win since.
He wasn't beaten too far in the Ebor in the summer from a 2lb higher mark, and I am hoping Doyle will be attuned if there is a lack of pace.
