G3 – 1703m – Turf


Lottie Marie

Showed some promise on turf last year but best known for her exploits on all-weather surfaces, latterly leading throughout in a 2000m Lingfield handicap. A likeable filly but this looks difficult.



Gained the latest of her four wins when leading throughout in a 1600m G3 at Sandown last August. Couldn’t manage to repeat that front-running trick on her 2021 return at Goodwood but it was still a decent effort.


Parent’s Prayer

Slow away before outgalloping 13 rivals to win a Listed contest at Naas last October, looking to enjoy the soft ground. Two good G3 runs this year suggest that another victory may be close.



Not at her best for her seasonal return, never threatening in a weak Newmarket G2. Can be difficult at the gates but showed her ability when easily winning a Listed contest at Sandown last September.


Queen Kahlua

Had quite decent winning form when trained in France, doing best on slow ground and over shorter distances than this. Quite a promising UK debut, though only over 1216m, last month.



Twice a winner last year, latterly in a 1600m fillies’ handicap at Goodwood. Prominent until fading late on her 2021 return in Listed company on the Kempton all-weather in April.



Slowly away and then had a poor trip on her three-year-old return. Again slow away but she responded gamely to pressure to win a 1600m Listed event on quick ground at Goodwood last month.



Responded well to jockey pressure when runner-up in a 1400m G2 at Newmarket last September, the best effort of her two-year-old career. Her pedigree suggests that this longer trip is not a problem.



From a stable that has won this race before. Only just failed to land a shock G3 win at Newbury in April, then just running a respectable eighth in a G1 Newmarket Classic. Chance if she handles this track.


Thank You Next

Hasn’t done particularly well in any of her four starts this year, though travelled smoothly in a 1600m soft-ground Ascot handicap two starts back only to weaken quickly in the closing stages.
