Queen Charlotte Fillies' Stakes (Listed)
Class 1 | 7f | Standard | 8 Runners | Polytrack
Off time: 18:42 | Winning time: 1m 22.56s
Three-time winner at three took form to new levels when winning 7f Listed race at Newbury on return where she travelled and quickened like a Group class performer. Hard to give weight to Billesdon Brook but may still be biggest danger.
Dual Group One winner took this race last year en-route to winning the Sun Chariot Stakes and a similar plan is likely here. Head and shoulders better than most of these on ratings and hard to oppose on balance.
Dual turf winner a fair performer but rated 32lb inferior to Billesdon Brook and likely to take Stakes record to 0-4 here.
Progressive last season but came up short in lone Listed try and having struggled for form this term she is expected to have similar problems today.
Lightly raced filly open to further improvement this term but put in her place by Mubtasimah at Newbury first time out so hard to fancy here.
Placed five times in nine starts at this level including second to Mubtasimah at Newbury on return. Gets 3lb now so ought to push that rival even closer although there was plenty in hand for the winner there.
Listed winner last year and not far behind Billesdon Brook in Snowdrop at Kempton on return. Received weight there however which she doesn't here.
Placed once in five starts at this level but rated just 87 which gives her an absolute mountain to climb today.
Billesdon Brook (6/5), Mubtasimah (10/3), Miss Celestial (7/2), Farzeen (15/2), Shepherd Market (10/1), Excellent Times (66/1), Stay Classy (100/1), Chicago May (150/1)
