Rosalie can maintain unbeaten record

Rosalie Bonheur can maintain her unbeaten record and get her 2015 campaign off to the best possible start with victory in the Coronation Fillies' Handicap at Leicester.

Clive Cox's charge won each of her three juvenile outings and while none of those races would have been the best of its type, plenty of winners have emerged from those who finished in behind.

Her initial maiden win at Ripon was probably nothing to write home about but the daughter of Siyouni impressed with a battling win on her first try in handicap company at Salisbury before following up at Newmarket on her final outing last September.

The fact this filly never wins by far means the handicapper cannot have been too harsh and off a mark of 79, Rosalie Bonheur appears to be sitting on a handy mark.

Rozene struck gold at Ripon earlier this month and is taken to repeat the trick in the Racing UK Anywhere Handicap at Redcar.

The Sleeping Indian filly made an impressive seasonal bow when holding off Lexington Place by a length in what was probably only an ordinary event, but she looked good value for the winning margin after making all.

Rozene can line up off an unchanged mark here and as she is in foal, David Barron will be keen to make hay while he can.

Distain looks a likely type in the Racing UK 1 Price 3 Devices Median Auction Maiden Stakes after having to settle for second on her racecourse bow at Ascot earlier in the month.
