Off time: 14:20 | Winning time: 1m 14.85s
Hit the ground running with 2 wins. latterly over this C&D. Clearly wasn't herself when sixth of 8 in minor event at Ripon (5f, good) 17 days ago.
First foal, dam, 10.3f winner, sister to useful 7f/1m winner (stayed 1¼m) Angel Vision out of very smart 1¼m (Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf)-1½m winner Islington.
Foaled March 17. €10,000 yearling, £3,000 2-y-o, Pride of Dubai filly. Half-sister to 3 winners, including 7f/1m winner Game Pie and 7f/1m winner Rogue Reporter. Dam 1¼m-1½m winner who stayed 1¾m.
Twice-raced maiden. Sixth of 8 in minor event at Haydock (6f, soft, 33/1) 14 days ago.
Foaled March 15. €62,000 foal, £60,000 yearling, Showcasing filly. Dam winner up to 7f (2-y-o 5f winner) out of 1m-1¼m winner Bonne Etoile.
Last of 12 in maiden at this course (5f, heavy, 200/1) on debut 24 days ago, slowly away.
Fair filly. 4/7, bit below form second of 7 in minor event at Lingfield (5f, AW) 38 days ago, ridden too aggressively. Really ought to get the job done here.
Sarsaparilla (1/2), Brazen Belle (5/1), Canterbury Tales (5/1), Lexington Bullet (8/1), Forza Del Destino (25/1), International Lady (33/1), Elizabeth's Dream (66/1), Magdalana (200/1)
Excuses are running out for SARSAPARILLA but connections have found a good opening for her here so she's perhaps worth one more chance. Those unwilling to side with her on account of the fact she has traded odds on in-running on her last 4 starts without getting the job done may well turn to newcomer Lexington Bullet, one of 2 debutantes for Richard Fahey.
