The first selection on the second day of the Ebor meeting comes in the Group Two Sky Bet Lowther Stakes over 6f and although Relief Rally has done very little wrong to date, we are taking a chance on the Aidan O'Brien trained Cherry Blossom.
Making her debut at Naas in the Listed Marwell Stakes over 5f she was an unlucky loser on the day back in fourth racing on the wrong side of the track on ground softer than she may like.
Starting her off in that sort of contest showed just what type of horse they think they have on her hands and last time out at the Curragh she proved just what a special horse she is.
Stepped up to 6f in a Maiden event on good ground she pulled away from the field in impressive style to bolt up five lengths, in the same race St Mark's Basilica won back in 2020 before going on to better things.
She has been supplemented for this event which is another big statement and if improving again might be tough to beat on quick ground again.
