A trio of Kempton attendees could be returning to action on Saturday, in attempting of claiming some black type in the Listed Aphrodite Fillies’ Stakes at Newmarket.

Chiasma, who claimed success in Sunbury-on-Thames back in June, makes the step up in class after showing promise over the middle distances.

John & Thady Gosden’s filly was slightly green when finishing third on her debut at Sandown, before finding one runner too good at Goodwood in May.

The sister of Frankel finally delivered on her promise on her third start, making good headway to lead in the final furlong and claim a two-length victory on the all-weather circuit.

She should appreciate the return to faster ground here and the three-year-old could be an interesting contender in this contest at Newmarket.

Portfolio, who ran at Kempton as a two-year-old, is given her chance in Listed company after breaking her maiden at the fifth attempt.

The Deep Impact filly was stepped up to 10 furlongs this season and finished a far from disgraced fourth at Newcastle in May.

She hinted at some promise when rallied well in the final stages, making up ground to finish only a length and a half.

Running in the Queen’s colours, she made all at Leicester after galloping on strongly to win by four lengths less than a fortnight ago.

Shine For You, who finished a close second at Kempton back in September, is stepped up in trip after several runs at Grade 3 and Listed level.

She has failed to reproduce her promising form of last season for Richard Hannon so far, but she is bred for the middle distances and could well bounce back here.
