While the pecking order of the top juvenile colts is coming to fruition, the hierarchy of their female counterparts is significantly muddied.
The Cheveley Park Stakes on Saturday was expected to confirm Pretty Pollyanna as the cream of the crop, but the Michael Bell-trained filly could get no closer than fourth behind Fairyland.
If it wasn’t to be her, then many had Signora Cabello as the super sub, but she trailed in last of the runners in a disappointing end to her season.
To add even more complexity to the mix, the Aidan O’Brien duo of Just Beautiful and Hermosa put up impressive performances in the Rockfel and Weld Park Stakes respectively, but both were comprehensively beaten by Skitter Scatter in the Moyglare Stud Stakes earlier this month.
The merry-go-round of this division seems to keep on spinning, and with only a few filly-only prizes, alongside the likelihood many of these are to be given their winter break, it’s likely the two-year-old fillies division won’t have a crowned champion.
