Dubara can repay those who give her a second chance at Yarmouth

Dubara let down favourite-backers last time out, but should be given a chance to redeem herself in the 188Bet Handicap at Great Yarmouth this afternoon.
The three-year-old was stepping up to 10 furlongs for the first time at Salisbury, having previously run up to a mile, but she hindered her chances when breaking slowly and was left in last place.
Admittedly, when Dubara made her move to the front, it appeared to be a promising run, but having given her six rivals a bit of a start, Luca Cumani's charge ran out of gas in the dying strides.
She was eventually beaten three-quarters of a length and a 4lb hike for that run, while far from ideal, is possibly fair as she did make up a chunk of ground.
Cumani steps back a furlong in trip here, but given a sharper start, Dubara certainly has the ability to make her mark.

Gelded in the interim, Working Class turned in an eyecatching effort in finishing third, albeit beaten six lengths by See Of Rome.
Working Class was just found out for race fitness at the finish, lacking the required extra gear and being edged out for second in the shadow of the post.
The Bahri colt has enough about him to win an event like this before switching to the handicapping route.
World Record can return to winning form in the Open Golf Betting At 188Bet Handicap.
Triumphant at Brighton last September, Mick Quinn's charge has only had the one run so far this year, running well enough to finish second back at the seaside track in May.
He was returning from a six-month break on that occasion, but his absence was clearly not too much of issue as he featured so prominently at the business end of the race. That bodes well for his claims here and he is certainly on a very workable mark of 58.
Tips: 2 Fyre Kay, 2.35 Enola, 3.10 Burning Heat, 3.45 Dubara, 4.20 Working Class, 4.55 World Record, 5.25 Moi Aussie.
