Talented filly Fair Eva, trained by Roger Charlton, will head to the QIPCO 1000 Guineas at Newmarket without a prep run, which will be hel on May 7.
The three-year-old is a general 10/1 shot for the one mile British Classic and was one of the best juveniles around last term, winning two of her four starts, in which coincidentally, she went off a short-priced favourite on every run.
An impressive winner at Haydock on her debut in June, the daughter of Frankel produced a potent turn of foot to win a G3 at Ascot in July, which outlined her credentials as one of the most talented fillies around.
However, she was arguably disappointing on her final two starts of the year. She was third at odds of 4/11 in the G2 Sky Bet Lowther Stakes at York in August behind Richard Fahey’s Queen Kindly, before only managing second in the G2 Shadwell Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket in September, despite being sent off the 4/9 favourite
Connections are pleased with the filly and are hoping for a productive campaign this term.
Harry Charlton, assistant to master handler Roger Charlton, remarked:
She won’t have a prep run. She will go straight to the Guineas. She went to Kempton last week and worked well. You invariably have a hard race in a trial if you win it or finish second or third. Physically she has done very well. She has grown and put on a lot of weight. Mentally she is good.
I get the the impression having watched the John Gosden horse win at Chelmsford City the other day they (Frankel offspring) are still doing the business and wanting to win.
