The John Musker Fillies’ Stakes takes place over 1 mile 2 furlongs and 23 yards at Yarmouth Racecourse on Wednesday 16 September. This Listed race is the highlight on the card, and it has attracted 14 runners.
3-year-olds have won seven of the last 10 editions, and this year’s older horses may struggle to give weight to the members of the Classic generation. That means I’m happy to take on Bella Vita, Big Hearted, Black Lotus, and Brassica.
Declared Interest is the lowest-rated of the 3-year-olds and looks exposed, while A La Voile also has plenty to find on official ratings, despite winning a maiden and two handicaps this season.
John Gosden has trained two of the last four winners of the John Musker Fillies’ Stakes and he saddles two runners this year. Tiempo Vielo drops in class after running in the Oaks, but she was also beaten in a Listed race before that. Majestic Noor was also beaten at this level last time.
Roger Varian has an even better record in the race, having won three of the last six renewals, and he’s another trainer with two runners. Waliyak won a handicap at the fourth attempt and a mark of 96 probably flatters her. Stylistique was rated 105 as a 2-year-old but now also finds herself on 96 after flopping in Group races. She drops in class but needs the step up to this distance for the first time to bring about some improvement.
Festive Star is the top-rated filly on a mark of 103 but that may also flatter her. She’s been beaten in Listed races on her last two runs and was behind Wejdan in one of those. Virgin Snow is an in-form filly after running well in a handicap at York but, though the long straight at Yarmouth may play to her strengths, she may prefer a bit of cut in the ground.
The yard of William Haggas continues to send out winners but Wejdan needs to raise her game after being beaten in Listed races on all three starts this season. But Haggas looks to have a great chance with his other runner.
Domino Darling is our John Musker Fillies’ Stakes tip. She did disappoint on her last run, but she may have needed that after a break and she’s interesting turned out again quickly on much better ground. She won her only race at two on a flat left-handed track and this daughter of Golden Horn is bred to be much better than her opponents.
