YORK & ASCOT | Several Kempton attendees feature on Friday and Saturday

A handful of recent Kempton runners could make the trip to York and Ascot at the end of the week



York Racecourse

Three runners who have recently run at Kempton hold entries at York and Ascot across the two cards on Friday and Saturday.

Fooraat, who finished second in the Listed Snowdrop Fillies’ Stakes back in April, is entered into the Lyric Fillies’ Stakes on Friday.

Fooraat is entered at York on Friday for Roger Varian

Roger Varian’s filly was stepped back up into Group 2 company on his last start, but was too headstrong and finished sixth in the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The daughter of Dubawi is yet to strike on turf, but she looks capable of landing some black type in this company at York.

A pair of two-year-old hold entries at Ascot on Saturday, with Oscula entered in both the Pat Eddery Stakes and the Group 3 Keeneland Stakes in Berkshire.

George Boughey’s filly has performed well in her first five starts, placing in the Albany Stakes before finishing fourth in the Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes at Newmarket earlier in the month.

She could remain at six furlongs but she was outpaced on quicker ground so the extra furlong in the Listed Pat Eddery Stakes may be a better option.

Daneh could feature at Ascot on Saturday for Simon & Ed Crisford

Daneh, who claimed success on her debut at Kempton, could also feature in the Listed contest as she is given her chance to land some black type for Simon & Ed Crisford.
