- Smith & Williamson Fillies' Novice Stakes (Div 2) (Class 5)
- 1m 1f 201y, Good to Firm (Good in places)
- 9 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Only limited promise in two bumpers and a Lingfield AW maiden. Hard to make a case for conceding lumps of weight all round.
Lope De Vega filly who cost a whopping €500,000 as a yearling and is a sister to three very useful winners. Lots of appeal on breeding and is clearly worth checking in the betting.
Sixties Icon filly who is a half-sister to 1m-1m4f winner Thaqaffa. One to note in the market as she makes her racecourse debut.
Daughter of Havana Gold who is a half-sister to a couple of winners from 1m to 1m4f. Needed her debut at Newbury a year ago and will probably derive benefit from this outing, too.
Oasis Dream filly who is a half-sister to the very useful Carntop. Keen enough when well behind on debut at Sandown last month and connections reach for a tongue tie as she looks to step up on that quiet start.
New Approach filly whose dam was placed in Group company over 6f as a juvenile. Nice pedigree and is another for whom the market should be the best guide on debut.
Well beaten on both starts at Newbury, latterly in a hood which is retained. Needs to show much more and is probably one for handicaps further down the line.
Intello filly who is a half-sister to fair 7f/1m performers Tomyris and Todegica. Ran respectably when finishing in mid-division on debut at Sandown last month and should improve
Beaten quite a long way in both starts at Kempton and Leicester. Probably one for handicaps after this run.
