Racing UK presenter Angus McNae is siding with the in-form Kevin Ryan yard at Beverley and looks at the Listed British Stallion Studs EBF Upavon Fillies' Stakes at Salisbury - the feature on Wednesday.

2.10 Beverley - Dandy's Beano:

Kevin Ryan has his team in tremendous heart at the moment and this two-year-old filly can continue that good form of the yard. Stable form on its own is no reason to back any horse as it is something of a misused reason for supporting horses.

It is far more important to know that she can run faster than her rivals in the Welcome To Flemingate Ladies Day Novice Auction Stakes and last time out she posted a decent Timeform speed figure when finishing runner-up at Nottingham.

She pulled four lengths clear with Crotchet, the winner. She shaped as if she would stay six furlongs, so this stiff five should be ideal.

I expect her to show the bright speed that she did at Nottingham and make all from stall nine. She does have course experience as well, as she made her racecourse debut here at Beverley.

3.40 Beverley - Talent Scout:

This is a modest claimer and Talent Scout should take plenty of beating at his favourite track.

He has won five times at Beverley, where he is often able to use his front-running tactics. It looks as if he will get his own way out in front under regular rider Gemma Tutty on Wednesday and if he does he will be very hard to beat.

The 11-year-old was a little disappointing last time out but that run came only six days after his previous effort and was a step up in grade.

Now after a short break and back down in grade he looks sure to go very close.

3.50 Salisbury - Coconut Creme:

The Listed Upavon Stakes is the feature event on a good Salisbury card and it can be won by the William Haggas team with Coconut Creme.

This filly was seventh to to Coronet in the Ribblesdale Stakes where she appeared not to stay 12 furlongs.

She is better judged on her previous effort at Goodwood where, in a Listed contest, she posted a decent Timeform Speed figure when runner-up over 10 furlongs to Mori.

This drop down to 10 furlongs looks ideal and, given her lightly-raced profile, it is possible that she has some more improvement in her.

It is also a bonus that the William Haggas team continue in good form.

This is a competitive race and I don't fancy her as much as my other three selections but she should go very well.

4.10 Beverley - Barwell:

Barwell looks set to complete a hat-trick for the Michael Dods team. He looked like a thoroughly progressive and improving type when winning at Ripon and most recently at Haydock.

That Haydock success was achieved in comfortable fashion in a fast time and a repetition of that should result in another victory.

His recent improvement has come since being stepped up in trip from a mile to Wednesday's distance of 10 furlongs and will be ideal.

There may be even more to come when his stamina is drawn out even more. Racing UK ambassador Paul Mulrennan rides and he knows him well, having been on board for his last two wins and he is ideally drawn in stall two.
