MAKE GAINS WITH GALLOVIE

Sunderland Echo - - Racing -

Gallovie shaped with abun­dant prom­ise on her New­bury de­but last month and looks dif­fi­cult to op­pose on her sec­ond start at Wind­sor to­mor­row.

The daugh­ter of Kyl­lachy was beaten just three-quar­ters of a length into sec­ond place on her in­tro­duc­tion lit­tle over three weeks ago and de­serves huge credit given she raced on the pace from the off.

She was mowed down late by the more ex­pe­ri­enced An­gel Mead, but fin­ished ahead of the Queen’s Mag­netic Charm, who gave the form a sig­nif­i­cant boost when re­turn­ing to New­bury to reg­is­ter a facile vic­tory on Mon­day.

Fledg­ling trainer Archie Watson has un­earthed a few tal­ented ju­ve­niles this sea­son, with Royal As­cot hero Soldier’s Call top of the pile.

Gallovie looks an­other who can go on and make her mark at a higher level if she can, as ex­pected, get off the mark in the Go Jump In Fil­lies’ Novice Auc­tion Stakes.

Ex­ceed­ingly Diva can per­haps re­coup the losses of her re­cent Sal­is­bury de­feat in the Ossie & Hutch Me­mo­rial Fil­lies’ Hand­i­cap.

Af­ter go­ing down by half a length on her Wind­sor de­but, Mar­cus Tre­go­ning’s three-year-old rounded off her ju­ve­nile cam­paign with an au­thor­i­ta­tive vic­tory at Sal­is­bury.

She was a heav­ily sup­ported even-money favourite to make a win­ning reap­pear­ance at the same track late last month, but was far too keen to do her­self jus­tice in front and faded to fin­ish fourth.

Al­most cer­tain to strip a lot fit­ter for that first run in al­most a year, she is given an­other chance to prove her worth as she en­ters the hand­i­cap arena for the first time off a mark of 81.

Giv­ing Glances gets the nod in the Dale Hall & Hick­man As­so­ci­ates Fil­lies’ Hand­i­cap at Le­ices­ter.

The Pass­ing Glance filly ran per­fectly well on her first three starts in hand­i­cap com­pany this sea­son with­out suc­cess.
