Jenkins Four-Year-Old To Strike Gold At Newcastle
John Jenkins sends his four-year-old filly CHLOELLIE up the M1 to Newcastle from his Hertfordshire stable today and the filly can add to her existing tally of six wins. She has mainly been campaigned at seven furlongs this season, with one try at a mile, but reverts back to one furlong shorter for the Ladbrokes 'Play 1-2 Free' On Football Fillies' Handicap this evening. She won over seven at Kempton back in January and definitely gets the trip but also has four victories over the shorter distance and returning to this trip and getting away from Kempton where she has run 12 of her 17 all-weather races might give her the extra two or three pounds needed to get her head in front.
The filly runs off a mark of 67 this evening, 1lb less than when a two and a half lengths third to Dawaaween on her last outing and her lowest since winning at Kempton in the Autumn of 2018. She will definitely be suited by Newcastle where the progeny of her sire Delegator have a very encouraging nine from 64,(14%) winning return. Her eight draw will enable pilot Daniel Muscatt to choose his place in the race and he is an excellent eight from 50 there. All looks good.
In a handicap like this there are numerous dangers of which QUEEN OF KALAHARI and ORIENTAL LILLY are the two obvious ones. The former comes here having completed a hat-trick at Southwell but although that track and Newcastle are both "all-weather" they are totally different surfaces and in any case the filly is up 15lbs from her first win in the sequence. Oriental Lilly has won here five times, her last off 5lb higher than today. That was back in April, though, and although she could win is hard to catch right. PORCELAIN GIRL is being backed, but after a good 2018 season has only beaten a dozen horses home this season in a total of six races. A price of 4/1 can be found about Chloellie and is worth taking.
