- Watch On RacingTV British EBF Mares' Standard Open NH Flat Race (Class 4)
- 1m 7f 169y, Soft (Good to Soft in places)
- 16 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Already a winner (over 12f) in the French Provinces, makes debut for new trainer today; yard 16% with their bumper runners here.
Milan filly that made a satisfactory debut at Bangor back in May, staying on for fourth in a similar event; that form not working out though, so may need more on reappearance after a break.
Mahler filly, bred to stay well and related to a few winners; yard 0-2 with their bumper runners here and are struggling for a bit of form too.
Getaway filly that ran well on debut at Sedgefield, finishing a staying-on second; that form may not be the strongest but the experience will not have been lost on her.
Black Sam Bellamy filly that is bred to stay much further than this; new yard yet to have a bumper winner and may be best watched today.
Shirocco filly, half-sister to winning chaser Generous Ransom and Imperial Presence, also owned by these connections, so they know the family well; yard 11% with their bumper runners here.
Shirocco filly, half-sister to three chase winners and dam a half-sister to a Grand National winner in Red Marauder; all that says she'll be better for fences and a trip, but has experience after her debut fourth here in May.
Passing Glance filly, full sister to winning hurdler Flashing Glance (who went close on debut); connections know the family well and yard get plenty of winners in this sphere.
Cost €52,000 as a 3yo, closely related to a bumper winner in The Milan Girl; solid second on debut at Taunton last month, running on well when the penny dropped; will know more here and looks a big player.
Cost £3,000 as a 3yo, half-sister to a few winners on the Flat and over jumps but well beaten on Fontwell bumper debut last month and looks to need more time.
Universal filly, cost £9,000 as a 3yo and dam related to some useful chasers; well down the field in a competitive Aintree bumper on debut and may find this easier, but needs plenty of improvement.
Shantou filly, sixth foal; sister to four winners including Mr Shantou and Henrietta Bell, so trip should suit on debt; yard 1-8 with their bumper runners here.
Mastercraftsman mare, makes only minimal appeal on pedigree for today's test and yard not known for bumper winners either.
