Good result on Bank Holiday Monday with Extraterrestrial @ 11-4 winning 1 mile claiming stakes at Newcastle for £165.00 profit .In very tight finish Extraterrestrial just got the verdict by short head from King Pin .No other bets so far this week, with the racing being of very low standard .
On Saturday we have fair looking card from Sandown ,with the two feature races being group three Sweet Solario stakes for two year olds over 7 furlongs & group three Atalanta Stakes over 1 mile for fillies & Mares .
Going concentrate on the days feature race 1 mile Atalanta Stakes on ground described as Good/ Good /Firm places
3.15 SANDOWN 1 MILE FILLIES AND MARES GROUP THREE:
10 runners go to post for decent looking group three contest for fillies and mares ,with the withdrawal of Chigun overnight .This race now looks match between Zibelina & Integral
ZIBELINA : Progressive filly ,unbeaten after three starts .Won the Woodcote stud listed stakes at Ascot last month in good style .Followed that winning group three contest at Deauville last time ,beating fair French horse in Table Ronde .Looks open to plenty more improvement .
INTEGRAL : Won first two starts ,including listed race over C&D at Sandown quickening up in impressive style from well off pace .Took big step up in class last time when finishing 7th of 14 in group one Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood ,though never got clear run at any stage in very messy race .Obvious claims now dropping back into group three company.
VERDICT : Integral is going be popular here dropping back into group three company after looking unlucky last time in Nassau at Goodwood.However her win over C&D in listed race back in July ,hasn't really worked out with second ,third & fourth from that race all being soundly beaten since .Still has to be respected with Sir Michael Stoute having such good record in the race ,though odds around 6-4 look too short .
The unbeaten ZIBELINA has solid form in group three company and still looks open to plenty improvement .She can get the better of her main rival Integral in race that looks to concern just the two .At double the odds of her main rival ,she looks good value bet here at 3-1 .
