Karl Burke's superstar filly Dramatised is now a very unlikely contender to head for the Nunthorpe and will instead go for the the Prix Morny in France or the Sky Bet Lowther Stakes at York's Ebor meeting.
The two year old filly Looks a really promising sprinter for the inform yard being extremely green on debut when hanging all over the place over 5f at Newmarket, but showed an emphatic turn of foot to take the race easily in the final furlong.
The form of the race has worked out well with the three behind her all franking it next time out and she went on to keep her unbeaten record next time out at Royal Ascot when taking out the Group Two Queen Mary in taking style.
With the manor of that win being so impressive the Group One Nunthorpe against her elders was hinted at but now she will stay against her own age group with other Group Two targets on the line before the step up to Group One company.
(Credit ATR) “Dramatised will either go for the Prix Morny or the Lowther next,” said Burke.“
We’ll just see what colts look like turning up in the French race, but we’ll keep her in the Lowther and see where we go.
“She is in the Nunthorpe, but I’m not sure that would be the right thing to do to her at that stage of her career.
“Obviously the Morny is a very prestigious race. It’s a colts race rather than a race for fillies, but Deauville’s 1200 metres would be right up her street and if she can beat the colts, then it adds to her prestige.
“It will be one or the other, the races are close together so she couldn’t do both. We’ll see what looks like turning up in the Morny.
“She is a Group Two winner already and if the Lowther wasn’t at York we probably wouldn’t be looking at it, but Steve (Parkin, owner) would love to win it, so that’s not a bad second choice.”
