Rosina the one to beat at Beverley

A nil return from a busy Saturday wasn't on the cards but Alan is off to Beverley and Yarmouth with today's selections...

"She stayed on well and won more easily than the official distance suggests."

16:35 Beverley - Rosina @ 3/1 Sportsbook

Ann Duffield is taking her two year old Rosina up in class today at Beverley, looking for her third career win. She won on her debut at York in June and very nearly followed that up at the same course next time out, finishing third but less than a length behind the winner. She then came out again at Ripon earlier this month to regain that winning feeling, where she stayed on well and won more easily than the official distance suggests.

She has already beaten Ayresome Angel when they met at York and Midnight Malibu doesn't look to have been done any favours by the handicapper - he has been burdened with an 11lb increase for his success at Haydock last time out.

I think Rosina is good enough to win in this class and the stiff track looks like it shouldn't trouble her.


15:15 Yarmouth - Up In Lights @ 5.04/1 Exchange

Up In Lights managed to find all sorts of trouble last time out at Kempton and despite being sent off the 6/4 favourite was never really put in the race. However, if you can overlook that run, then her debut win at Nottingham where she beat, among others, the subsequent dual-winner Pyjama Party, a return to that form would be good enough to take this event.

Roger Varian runs Estikhraaj in the race and he looks to be the main threat, in a way he has a similar profile to Up In Lights in that he is lightly raced and open to improvement. At the prices though I would rather be with Up In Lights and just hope that the Kempton race was a blip on his form.
