Nice to hit the board in August ,after couple near misses,with Mrs Deavers winning the five furlong listed race at Newbury in good style,making that four wins in row .For nice £210.00 profit on the day .
Moving on to Sunday,we have decent looking 6 furlong fillies listed race at Pontefract.10 runners declared for Flying Fillies stakes on ground described as Good .The three main contenders are Ridge Runner , La Rioja & Priceless .
RIDGE RUNNER : Decent 5-Y-0 Mare ,winning 6 out 18 .Been in decent form this season ,winning 6F Listed race at Nottingham in May & G3 Summer Stakes at York in July .Finished fair 7th of 27 in Stewards Cup at Glorious Goodwood under 9 stone 10 last time .Fair claims on form,though won't be easy task under 7LB group three penalty .
LA RIOJA :Useful 2-Y-0 last season ,winning 2 out 3 ,including bolting up in 6F Dick Poole G3 stakes at Salisbury in September.Not looked quite as good so far this season ,however did finish creditable 4TH in G1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot .Will be suited by this drop in class, with Henry Candy stable back in good form.
PRICELESS :Improving sort , though only win came in maiden at Haydock on debut last season .Finished good 2ND on last two starts in competitive class two handicaps at Newmarket ,including finishing head behind Mount Kiara last time ,off mark 98 .Should be thereabouts ,though has been well beaten on both starts in listed company.
VERDICT : LA RIOJA will be suited by this stiffer track, and can reverse York form with Ridge Runner on 5LB better terms.She had some useful form last season as two year old ,including winning in G3 company .Looks more than capable taking this listed contest .
