Raven’s to swoop in for win in Es­sex

The Chronicle - - Racing -

RAVEN’S LADY hit the cross­bar in Listed com­pany last time, but the Greene King IPA Char­lotte Fil­lies’ Con­di­tions Stakes at Chelms­ford can pro­vide ad­e­quate com­pen­sa­tion.

Marco Botti’s charge made a slow start to the cam­paign but wins at New­mar­ket in June and July have re­ally kick­started her sea­son and seen her rise 10lb in the of­fi­cial rat­ings.

Her new perch of 95 makes hand­i­cap op­por­tu­ni­ties rather lim­ited, so it was lit­tle sur­prise Botti raised her sights for the Fly­ing Fil­lies’ Stakes at Pon­te­fract last time.

She was well sup­ported that day, but ul­ti­mately last year’s Lowther win­ner Queen Kindly was just un­der a length too good and Raven’s Lady had to be con­tent with shar­ing third af­ter a tight fin­ish.

Nev­er­the­less, that ef­fort proved she is more than ca­pa­ble at that level, so switch­ing back in com­pany here and with the con­di­tions of the race leav­ing her well in, Raven’s Lady will be a tough nut to crack.

Piedita can chalk up her hat-trick in the Ab­bot Ale Hand­i­cap.

A typ­i­cal Sir Mark Prescott type, Piedita has thrived for a size­able step up in trip to two miles, claim­ing vic­tory in a maiden hand­i­cap at Bev­er­ley be­fore fol­low­ing up at Ling­field last week.

She looked good value for her fourand-a-half-length win­ning mar­gin last week, tri­umph­ing with the min­i­mum of fuss to sug­gest the 6lb penalty she is sad­dled with here will prove no bar to suc­cess.

Mobb­hij is worth look­ing out for in the clos­ing Ok­to­ber­fest Here On 13th Oc­to­ber Maiden Stakes.

A half-brother to the classy Sa­jjhaa, Saeed bin Suroor has ob­vi­ously give this colt plenty of time be­fore pitch­ing him into bat­tle.

Ti­ra­nia can make the long trip from New­mar­ket to Mus­sel­burgh pay div­i­dends in the EBF Stal­lions Breed­ing Win­ners Fil­lies’ Hand­i­cap.

Wil­liam Hag­gas’ charge has won one of her four starts to date but she seemed to be found out when stepped up in grade last time at As­cot.

This event does not look quite as com­pet­i­tive though and Ti­ra­nia has also been eased 1lb in the rat­ings which is a help.

Chalky can make it third-time lucky in the Cdl Re­cruit­ment/EBF Maiden Fil­lies’ Stakes at Bath.

Sec­ond at Yar­mouth on her de­but in July, she was beaten just a head in third at Sal­is­bury ear­lier in the month.

She still looked a bit green that day so it surely just a mat­ter of time be­fore she gets her head in front for Mar­tyn Meade.
