There is Flat racing from Ballinrobe on Tuesday

Timeform pick out three bets from Ballinrobe on Tuesday evening.

"She should have more to offer on just her sixth career start now she is up and running..."

Sister Blandina - 18:50 Ballinrobe

Sister Blandina landed the odds when sent over to Bath on just her second handicap start, and impressed with the way she made up ground and got readily on top in the final furlong to score by two and a quarter lengths. She should have more to offer on just her sixth career start now she is up and running, and is narrowly proffered to No Biggie and Phebes Dream, who are both similarly lightly raced and remain with potential. Reserve Northern Sky would also be respected if able to take his chance.

Queen Alphabet 19:50 Ballinrobe

Queen Alphabet proved a let down on her chasing debut last week (possibly did too much too soon), but was a winner of a Roscommon maiden on the Flat prior to that, and with this extra furlong expected to suit (winner over two miles over hurdles) she looks on a workable mark for her handicap debut. Little Stampy is another reverting back from jumps racing and she could be the main danger to the selection after two good placed efforts over hurdles on her last two starts.

Manuka 20:25 Ballinrobe

Manuka has gone through a fair few trainers over the years but Karl Thornton seems to have found the key to him and he has won on the Flat and over jumps since joining the yard late last season. Manuka's last Flat third at Dundalk is working out well, with both the winner and the fourth being next-time-out winners, and he should run well from the same mark here. Joseph O'Brien's Along The Shore ran right up to his best when last seen and could be the main danger to the selection along with Byron Beauty, who is a long-standing maiden but was second here last season from an 8 lb higher mark.
