Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Monday; Wonderstruck in the Leicester 4:55. Compare odds and bet.
William Haggas, who provided us with a winner on Saturday, has his string in fine form at present and he can strike at Leicester on Monday, with the well-bred Wonderstruck (4:55) in the extended 1m3f fillies’ maiden.
The Sea The Stars filly, who is a half-sister to George Washington and Grandera, shaped well on debut at Ascot recently and she holds entries in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot and the Irish Oaks in July.
This longer trip should suit and, while the fast finishing Rewaaya re-opposes, she is taken to get off the mark at the second time of asking. John Gosden’s filly made up plenty of ground late on having been slow away, but she didn’t look totally straightforward and flashed her tail during the early part of the race. She clearly has ability, but preference is for Wonderstruck with the stable in such good form.
