The first race on day four at the Berkshire track is the Group Three Albany Stakes and with such a big field we have two selections at differing prices.
The shorter of the two is the Simon & Ed Crisford trained Flotus and the two year old daughter of Starspangledbanner is exceptionally bred being bought for €65,000 as a foal and was then resold for 125,000gns as a yearling.
With big things expected from her, the juvenile stepped up for her debut on Saturday at Goodwood over 6f and she ran out an exceptional winner by close to five lengths.
What was taking about this horse was the way she went away from the field in the final stages, showing a clear burst of speed and stamina to stay out the trip well.
One to beat.
