Tough luck for Alan Dudman yesterday as Midnite Bride finished second and hit [1.34] in-running. He heads to Lingfield and Ayr for his Wednesday selections...

"Her ability to see out the extra yardage with proven stamina is always a plus at Ayr with its long run-in."

Back Royal Countess @ BSP in the 18:10 at Ayr

Hannon filly can charge home at "leafy"

16:35 Lingfield - Back Fromnowon @ BSP

Lingfield tends to throw up horses who come late and fast, and for that reason, the Richard Hannon filly Fromnowon is worth backing in the 16:35.

It's a moderate card on the all-weather for Wednesday and bets were hard to find, but the selection didn't really get a run at Newbury last time.

That looked a stronger race than today's and she had a lot to do in the closing stages out the back. She could also have been disadvantaged by running near the stands' rail and it didn't help matters she was denied racing room.

She ran well in her first two starts this season and switches to the polytrack for Wednesday for the first time. Jockey Sean Levey will have to be patient as she is drawn out wide in 11.

Count on Royal to see out the distance

18:10 Ayr - Back Royal Countess @ BSP

Digging out bets at Ayr wasn't easy either, but Royal Countess is consistent and can keep her good season going. And consistency is worth so much in these sort of races.

This filly has improved for the switch to Mike Smith from Lucy Normile, although I am fairly sure Normile is now working as Smith's assistant (hopefully I have that right).

She landed a 1m2f race with ease in soft conditions at the track last month, and followed up with a solid second over course and distance.

Her ability to see out the extra yardage with proven stamina is always a plus at Ayr with its long run-in, and whilst she has faced a hike in the weights, her jockey Carol Bartley is very capable in these amateur races. And whilst Dreamseller is in form and consistent, that horse will have to carry plenty of weight.
