The 2020 Fairy Bridge Stakes takes place over 7 furlongs and 110 yards at Gowran Park Racecourse on Wednesday 2 September. This Group 3 race for fillies and mares has attracted 13 runners, and the ground is forecast to be soft.
There are lots of statistics from past editions and the most notable is that winners in the last decade have come from stalls 1, 2, or 3 or have been drawn between 9-12. That means it could be worth taking a chance that the winner will not be drawn between stalls 4-8, allowing us to leave out Romantic Proposal, Auxilia, Eden Quay, Pearls Galore, and Tango.
The top-rated horse in this year’s line-up is rated 110, which means that Lady Scathach (79), Parent’s Prayer (86), and Precious Moments (90) shouldn’t be winning. Rocket Science is another that needs to find plenty on official ratings having won a handicap off a mark of 86 last time, but she has at least now won her last two races and could have further improvement to come.
Faire Croire is a course and distance winner, but that win came on good-to-firm ground. She did run okay in a Listed race on soft ground last time, but that performance still leaves her with plenty to find. Miss Myers finished well-beaten in that race and is another that shouldn’t be winning.
Soul Search deserves to win a big race, as she was highly tried as a 2-year-old, running well behind the likes of Love and Alpine Star in Group 2 and Group 1 company. But she didn’t get head in front until winning a maiden, after which she’s been placed in a Group 3 and two Listed races. If you want to play each-way, Ger Lyon’s 3-year-old looks the call, but I think she’ll only finish second at best.
Champers Elysees is our Fairy Bridge Stakes tip 2020. She wasn’t as highly tried as some of her opponents as a 2-year-old but, as her one win came on heavy ground, there should be no excuses no matter how soft the ground rides. She then didn’t seem fancied when winning a handicap off a mark of just 86 on her seasonal debut but was backed off the boards before blitzing the re-opposing Auxilia by 7-lengths at the Galway Festival. She will be very hard to beat if running to that form again and, as she could improve further, she rates a decent bet.
