Ante Post: July Cup at Newmarket, 13th July – Fairyland (e/w) 25/1 Paddy Power & Betfred.
Ascot Day One, Fairyland, 5th King Stand,
Having not stayed in either of the English or Irish Guineas, this was a fair step back in trip, but she acquitted herself extremely well, showing plenty of pace over this minimum trip against some real speedsters. She couldn’t quite match the blistering speed of the front two, but stayed on really well and in a few more strides would have grabbed 3rd. A sixth furlong would be ideal and she’d be massive player in the July Cup, which we feel would be the next logical step for her where she would get all the allowances for being a 3yo filly.
