The blog returns after short break, for cracking card at Ascot for British Champions Day.Which includes four group one races .Going concentrate on G1 Fillies & Mares over 12 furlongs .
1.55 ASCOT 12F QIPCO FILLIES & MARES GROUP ONE :
12 runners declared for high quality G1 Fillies & Mares contest over 12 furlongs on Good/soft ground.The three main contenders look to be Candarliya , Covert Love & Sea Calisi .
CANDARLIYA : Improving 3-Y-0 French Filly,with excellent strike rate this season,since stepping up in trip,winning five times and finishing second twice.Produced career best effort when finishing second to the useful Treve in G1 Prix Vermeille .Looks open to more improvement and handles any ground .
COVERT LOVE : Useful 3-Y-0 filly,winning 4 out 5 on turf ,including winning the G1 Irish Oaks at Curragh in good style .Also won G1 Prix De L 'Opera at Longchamp ,beating Jazzi Top in close finish last time .Obvious claims on that form ,though did have hard race, last time in France 13 days ago.
SEA CALISI : Consistent French Filly ,winning 2 out 6 races , including winning 12F G2 at Saint Cloud in June .Finished creditable third in both G1 Yorkshire Oaks & G1 Prix Vemeille.Looks closely matched with Candarliya & Covert Love on that form .Solid each-way claims.
VERDICT Covert Love is very tough front running filly, and dual group one winner, and has to be respected,though had very hard race in France only 13 days ago,and is passed over.
French Filly CANDARLIYA has done nothing wrong this season, and looks to have ideal conditions here.Has excellent record over 12F (11121) and this race should also be run to suit, with plenty pace in the race .Looks solid each-way bet at around 5-1 mark .
