At Newmarket the Sweet Solera is the feature at 15:35 live on Channel 4. This Group Three contest is for two-year-old fillies over seven furlongs and in recent years has been farmed by the Godolphin team. This year they rely on Certify who has won her only start to date in a six furlong maiden at this track in July and the form has been franked by the second Pearl Sea who went on to break her maiden at Glorious Goodwood. She should be improve for this extra furlong too.
Mark Johnston has Deauville Listed winner Discernable entered. She showed a good turn of foot there. Richard Hannon’s Sky Lantern comes into this unbeaten after wins in a maiden at Goodwood and a listed race at Naas, both over six furlongs. Her last run was in June and an intended run at Royal Ascot didn’t materialise. She’s an exciting filly though and could be one for the Guineas next spring and I fancy her chances here.
Mick Channon’s Ollie Olga is also unbeaten and has some decent entries for later in the season. Redressthebalance has also won both her starts for Ralph Beckett including in a nursery last time out on firm ground. Reyaadah is already a winner for Charlie Hills and Paul Hanagan will ride for retained owner Sheikh Hamdan al Maktoum. She will also apprecaite the step up to seven furlongs and is a threat in this race.
Sir Mark Prescott has his team in good form as he tends to at this time of year and he has the well bred Savanna La Mar who has already been placed at listed level and looks capable of stepping into group company. There are some potentially very nice fillies in this contest, but I’m going to take a chance that Sky Lantern can end the recent Godolphin domination in this race.
