@TheTWETracker’s Three To Follow This Weekend

Chiasma (16:35 Goodwood - Saturday)

Much has been spoken about the potential of this John Gosden filly given her outstanding pedigree, and who she represents, and it was no surprise to see her make a pleasing enough debut at Sandown despite shaping as if she would learn plenty from the experience.

This daughter of Galileo certainly has a big reputation to fulfil, being only the second filly out of Kind, a full sister to the mighty Frankel, the Group 1 winning Noble Mission, and a half-sibling to Bullet Train & Joyeuse, all of which achieved an official rating of 100+ in their respective careers so much is to be expected of her second time up.

The weight of expectation with a horse of this nature will always be huge, but she looks to have been placed well by her connections and should prove tough to beat in the Class 4 Fillies' Novice event this Saturday.

Her price offers little value for punters to get involved, though the opportunity for the racing to be provided another potential superstar will offer enough excitement to enjoy the race without a financial investment.

Eve Lodge (18:55 Lingfield - Saturday)

The second runner which we feel has to be of real interest this weekend arrives in a similar contest with Eve Lodge looking to lose her maiden status at the second attempt in the Class 5 Fillies' Novice Stakes at Lingfield for trainer Charlie Fellowes and the Offthebridle Podcast Li ownership group.

The eye was very much drawn to this daughter of Ardad on her racecourse debut back in May at Ascot, when given a typically quiet ride by Jamie Spencer, before staying on strongly to almost snatch second despite showing a tendency to hang a little.

Connections have taken the decision to keep that partnership intact, suggesting similar tactics may well be adopted again, which should ensure she is able to settle better and with similar conditions on offer for her return it would come as a major surprise should she not be thereabouts, with this also representing a slight drop in grade.

El Picaro (19:55 Lingfield - Saturday)

We remain at Lingfield on Saturday for our final runner for you to monitor this weekend, and the Tom Clover trained El Picaro looks to have a big chance of striking at the third attempt in the Class 6 Median Auction Maiden Stakes 7f event providing he handles the new surface on his turf debut.

Although his pedigree very much suggests he may be better equipped to the all-weather, he is by Dragon Pulse who was a smart Group 1 performer in and around this trip on a more easy surface which does provide reason to be optimistic heading into this weekends contest.

His debut run back in March left a fair bit to be desired when never really landing a blow from the rear over 7f at Kempton, although when last seen over a similar C&D event back in April he travelled much more powerfully having been raced up with the pace on that occasion.

He displayed a good attitude then when keeping on well in the closing stages to finish an eventual close third, despite lacking the pace of the first two home, which suggests if this race is ran at a more sedate pace with conditions on the slow side then that may present him an ideal opportunity to get his head in front with talented claimer Mark Crehan shaving off a further 5lbs.
