The William Jarvis trained Lady Bowthorpe has been a revelation for the yard this term and having now mixed it with the best milers in the division on multiple occasions, she is now looking for revenge against her rivals by finally getting her head in front.
The five year old mare has turned into a different horse this season, having always been a nice mare landing races like the Group Three Valiant Fillies' Stakes over course and distance at Ascot, but this term she has taken her form to a new level.
She started this season off in the Group Two Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket over 9f on quick ground and went on to win well.
The progressive stable star for Jarvis backed that up next time out when giving a career best performance to chase home Palace Pier in the Group One Lockinge Stakes.
The pair on the day went well clear of the third and then further clear of the rest of the field and that effort put her into favourite for the Group Two Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Again she had to settle for second with the big outsider Indie Angel for John Gosden and Frankie Dettori stealing the show up the inside.
Jarvis has been persistent about throwing her into the big races and last time she was seen finishing an extremely close fourth in the Group One Falmouth Stakes.
Now the handler is looking to keep her in Group One events and next time out see her in the Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, where she will be taking on plenty of her rivals from the July meeting.
“She’s come out of the race fine and I’m very happy with her,” said the trainer.
“I thought she was the best horse in the race. It will probably be the Nassau next, but nothing is set in stone.
“She’s a very smart filly and is still progressing. Hopefully she’ll get her day in the sun.”
