Say yes to Beckett’s runner

Say yes to Beckett’s runner


Yesyes is expected to maintain her unbeaten record in the Read Kevin Blake On Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Lingfield on Wednesday.

The daughter of Camelot made her racecourse debut in what looked a warm contest at Haydock last month, with high-class bumper mare Eileendover widely expected to open her account on the Flat.

But Yesyes justified market confidence with a clear-cut victory – recovering from a tardy start to win in the style of a filly destined to land black type at some stage. An entry in the Lillie Langtry at Glorious Goodwood suggests trainer Ralph Beckett is of a similar view – and if Yesyes can make it two from two, a step up in class beckons.

She’s The Danger is the one to be on in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes. Adrian Keatley’s youngster shaped with abundant promise when third on her introduction at Pontefract at a few weeks ago – form which looks pretty strong given runner-up Shouldavbeenmore has since run with credit in Listed company.

She’s The Danger can only improve from that initial experience and is difficult to oppose, with champion jockey Oisin Murphy on board.

Instinction can reward those who keep the faith in the British Stallion Studs EBF Restricted Novice Stakes at Catterick.

A winner on debut at Redcar in the spring, Bryan Smart’s filly has been a beaten favourite on her last couple of starts, most recently disappointing at Beverley a fortnight ago.

The daughter of crack Australian sprinter Brazen Beau was simply far too keen to do herself justice on the Westwood, but undoubtedly has plenty of ability.

If the application of a hood helps harness that talent in North Yorkshire, she will take some stopping.

Entwistle is expected to make it third time lucky in the Watch Racing TV Now Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

Never really a factor on his first start at Southwell, Karl Burke’s charge raised his game to finish second to subsequent winner Excel Power at Wolverhampton next time.

Entwistle has been off the track since, having been gelded during the intervening period.

He will not need to improve too much on his most recent effort to make his presence felt.

Yarmouth punters are advised to side with Super Over in the Silk Series Handicap.

A 1400m contest confined the lady riders, Super Over will be partnered by the record-breaking Hollie Doyle, which is a huge plus. Archie Watson’s gelding has won once from four attempts and has filled the runner-up spot on the other three occasions, most recently making much of the running at Chester before being mowed down late.

A slight back in trip should help him get back on the winning trail.

Yccs Portocervo can completed a Uttoxeter hat-trick in the Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap Chase.

Dr Richard Newland’s charge won at the Staffordshire circuit last summer and last month, with his latest triumph particularly impressive given it was his first competitive outing since November.

A 1.5kg rise might not be enough to stop him following up over the same course and distance. – Press Association
