Having won earlier in March at Wolverhampton, Lancelot Du Lac is clearly in good form and can lift the Betsi Conditions Stakes.

Robert Cowell had Raucous in that race but has declared him for the Santander Consumer Handicap.

Both Alfa McGuire’s victories as a two-year-old came at Beverley and the trend can continue at the East Yorkshire track in the Alan McGuiness And Robin Lunness Memorial Handicap.
