Gosden Filly On The Comeback Trail

One of my pet hates is when, after tipping and backing a horse for a race the trainer comes out after the event and tells us all how much he or she needed the run – hopefully that will not be the case with Indigo Girl after the 3.00pm at Ascot on Friday afternoon. 

A top class two-year-old with wins at Yarmouth and Doncaster (in the Group Two May Hill Stakes), she ended her season with a half-length second to Pretty Gorgeous in the Group One fillies Mile here at Ascot after a slow start that may well have cost her the race and her unbeaten record. 

Slowly away that day, she ran on strongly making the seven furlongs here a slight concern, and she has obviously had a few minor issues to have missed the classics, but if she is at her best, she should find this company far less exacting.
