LADY DAUPHIN might have further improvement in her after just three starts and she looks an interesting runner on her handicap debut at Yarmouth today (4.20).

She showed promise on her sole run here last year, but reportedly suffered a setback in the Spring. She wasted no time in getting off the mark on her belated return at Redcar, probably doing well to win on what may not have been the favoured part of the track.

She could finish only third next time, but she was carrying a penalty that day, and the two that beat her were the odds-on favourite who had some very solid handicap form, and a debutante who shaped with plenty of promise and takes her chance, albeit as a big-priced outsider, in the Listed event earlier on the card.

She probably wouldn’t want the ground to dry out too much, and she does need to find a little improvement, but Charlie Fellowes’ horses tend to do well when sent handicapping after three starts in maidens or novices (8 wins from 48 runs, 16.7% strike rate, +16.5pts over the last three seasons), and there may still be better to come from Lady Dauphin.
