The Price Bailey EBF Stallions Fillies’ Handicap comes from Newmarket on Friday afternoon and looks another competitive race on a busy day of racing.
It’s held over a distance of seven furlongs and there are 13 runners going to post here.
The favourite in the betting is Aristocratic, who is at 9/2 and will be looking to build on a decent second at Goodwood last time out.
This is just the horses second start in a handicap and she hasn’t yet managed to get her head in front just yet, despite being sent off at 5/4 in maidens at both Newmarket and Chelmsford.
There’s probably a race in this filly though and Sir Michael Stoute does well with this type of horse.
Permission can be backed at 6/1 and gets a handicap mark of 90 for her win on debut here over a mile last month.
We don’t really know if that mark is harsh of generous at the moment, but you have to be impressed with the way she won on her first start.
Daniel Muscutt gets to take three pounds off here as well which is a positive and the horse should go well.
Eternally is then at 13/2 for John Gosden and this horse was third at Carlisle last time out.
That was a good effort from the horse as well as it was in a Listed event and the filly has managed to win two from three as well. Gosden’s horses are in very good form at the moment and 13/2 could be a fair price about this one.
Sainted is then available at 7/1 for William Haggas and is a course and distance winner after winning comfortably here last time out.
That was, however, on soft ground and all three of this horses races have come in conditions. How she’ll go in this is unsure and it might be a bit of a concern.
Drifting Sprit can then be backed at 11/1 and won really well over course and distance a couple of times last season.
The horse hasn’t been seen yet this season and Richard Fahey can certainly get them ready first time out.
It’s 12/1 and over about the rest of the field.
