Ralph Beckett has been in good form recently, with a strike-rate of 30 per cent in the last fortnight. He’s got some big runners coming up at the weekend and Kinross will be attempting to defend his Champions Sprint crown. The Hampshire-based trainer had an across the card treble on Wednesday and with the cancellation of Haydock’s fixture, is set to have just one runner on Friday. His sole runner has to be of interest here, especially as its being sent all the way up to Redcar. You can check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
Verbier was successful on debut at Wolverhampton back in March. That win came over an extended 1m1f and several subsequent winners have come out of the race. She drops back to a mile here, on her first start for 209 days, and her mixed pedigree would indicate that it won’t be an issue.
This daughter of Frankel cost 380,000 guineas at the sales and she’s related to winners over distances ranging from 5f to 1m6f. It’ll be interesting to see what her ideal trip is in the long run as her sire was bred to be a middle-distance horse and her dam won over 1m4f.
There’s certainly a lot to like about this filly and her owner has two winners from her four runners in the last fortnight. Jockey Rossa Ryan has had a profitable time of late also, riding 15 winners in the last two weeks. This is certainly never a bad combination to have and it bodes well for her chances.
Beckett’s three-year-old carries a penalty for that victory but she’s entitled to improve from her debut effort. She has every chance of maintaining her unbeaten record if doing so and a big run could be on the cards.
