Blandford Bloodstock Maiden Fillies' Stakes (Plus 10) (Div 1)
Class 4 | 7f | Good to Firm | 8 Runners | Turf
Off time: 16:16 | Winning time: 1m 24.3s
105,000gns yearling newcomer by Shamardal is a half-sister to six winners including two at Listed level overseas over 1m-1m2f. Yard capable of readying a debutant so market support would be a positive.
Newcomer by Shamardal is a full-sister to 6f-1m winner Born in Bombay and and half-sister to five winners including Group Three scorer Sparkling Beam. Yard has it's share of debut winners so merits respect first time up.
Minor promise in debut fifth at Windsor over 5f but flopped next after a long absence when last at Chelmsford over 7f. Plenty to prove now.
Dubawi filly is a half-sister to four winners all of them useful with the most notable Group One winner Ajman Princess. Very encouraging debut on the July course here when a running on second and with more to come she has very strong claims.
€775,000 newcomer by Siyouni (sire of Laurens) out of a French 1m4f winner who was also Listed placed. Excellent middle distance pedigree and represents a top yard with an exceptional record with newcomers.
Born To Sea filly was 50/1 when 12th of 16 on debut over this trip at Leicester. That form leaves plenty to be desired although she can hopefully step forward.
Vast improvement on no show on debut on the July course over 6f when narrowly going down over 7f at Goodwood next. That form puts her firmly in the mix here and any further improvement would be welcome.
Dubawi newcomer is a half-sister to seven winners from 1m-1m6f and out of a Group Two winning dam from 1m2f-1m4f. Well bred but yard's two-year-olds tend to need their first race.
Imperial Charm (6/4), Maqsad (5/2), Sunday Star (7/2), Be More (8/1), Nearooz (8/1), Lyzbeth (10/1), Truly Adored (12/1), Red Romance (12/1), Beautiful Gesture (14/1), Swansdown (16/1), Hanakotoba (66/1), Nyanga (66/1)
