Stoute to land Yarmouth prize

Grain Of Truth can step up on her recent placed effort to land a valuable Listed win in the EBF At The Races John Musker Fillies' Stakes at Yarmouth today.

Grain Of Truth can step up on her recent placed effort to land a valuable Listed win in the EBF At The Races John Musker Fillies' Stakes at Yarmouth today.

Sir Michael Stoute has quietly brought this Gulch filly along over the season, starting the campaign with a maiden win before tackling handicap company.

She has steadily moved up the tree and after a decent second at York, Stoute switched her to the all-weather where she made most of the opportunity to win a fair handicap event.

Grain Of Truth then made the move to Listed company and was far from disgraced when second to Portal at Goodwood.

After taking it up inside the final furlong, she just got mown down by the winner to finish a head second.

This 270,000 guineas purchase appears to be a progressive filly and Stoute looks to have placed her to good advantage.

Pevensey has been out of luck on his last two starts, but he can come good again in the South Pier Lowestoft Stakes.

Mark Buckley's charge won well at Leicester in July, easily holding subsequent Epsom winner Nero's Return, but he found the going much too tough at Windsor next time when taking a more prominent position.

Settled at the back of the pack when contesting one of the Shergar Cup races, Pevensey looked more like himself, travelling well throughout.

But the gaps never opened for him and it was all too late when he did see some space so his three-length fourth behind Melbourne Cup-bound Young Mick reads reasonably well.

La Neige is pretty exposed having been quite extensively campaigned, but he should have another win in him at Sandown.

Having won his debut at Nottingham, Mick Channon has tried the Royal Applause colt in both Listed and Pattern-race company with his fourth in the Richmond Stakes a particularly good run.

He can be forgiven his performance at Ripon when sent off odds-on as he sat down in the stalls while the start was again a bit tricky when runner-up in a Kempton Group Three last time.

La Neige is a consistent runner who always seems to give his best so victory in the Vaillant Novice Stakes would be richly deserved.

Dansa Queen showed a nice turn of foot at Windsor last time and it would be no surprise if she were to double up in the Main Fillies' Handicap.

At Beverley's meeting, Bollin Dolly should appreciate the step back up to 12 furlongs in the Brecks Saab Handicap.

Moved back to a mile and a quarter last time, Tim Easterby's filly tried to make all before just getting tapped for toe by some speedier types. She stayed on well to her credit but the move back up in trip can only be a good thing.

Sir Nod can take advantage of his good draw in the Brecks Chevrolet Handicap.
