Listed – 1600m – Turf


Aunty Bridy

Progress at two, finally finishing runner-up in a 1400m G3 at The Curragh. Last of 17 in a Newbury G3 on debut for this top UK stable who have won this for the past two years.



Ran on late after looking uncomfortable for much of the race at Newbury last time, following on from a better run at Ascot previously. A powerful, scopey filly who will surely progress.


Glesga Gal

Travelled well but faded fast in a heavy-ground 1600m Royal Ascot handicap, previously having proved much too strong for her rivals at Wolverhampton.



Twice a stylish winner in minor company earlier this year. Beaten out of sight at Royal Ascot last month. However, from the Gosden stable deserves some respect.


Lucid Dreamer

Despite inexperience she won both two-year-old starts. Showed little on her return back in April but her stable are going much better now and pedigree is promising about 1600m.


Ready To Venture

Her supporters will need to forgive a dismal effort when favourite at Goodwood last time. Her previous third over this trip at Ascot was promising.


Rosemary And Thyme

Her pedigree suggests that this move up to 1600m may well help. She is yet to win from five starts on turf but has been gradually improving on her six 2021 starts.


Seattle Rock

Twice third in G3 company at two, she is talented but frustrating.  However her class shone through when she won a novices’ event at Newbury last month. Drying ground please.



Very promising for this top stable at two, including a soft ground victory over this trip. Much less promising this year so far, racing too keenly and fading each time.


Shine For You

Although she has not looked like winning either of her 2021 starts they have been in good company and she has not been beaten far. The stable have won this Listed race before.



A quality filly who nearly landed a shock win in a 1400m Newbury G3 in April, her conqueror winning a G1 later. Not at all disgraced since and with excuses. Wants a strong pace.
