We’ve a midweek treat at Salisbury as the track is staging the Group 3 Dick Poole Fillies’ Stakes over 6f, which has been won by smart types in the past.

Nine are set to go to post at the time of writing and none make more appeal than Andrew Balding’s FIRELIGHT, who would have finished closer than fourth in the Group 2 Lowther last time out had things worked out better for her.

A winner of back-to-back races at Kempton and Newmarket previously, she looked to be travelling well in behind on the Knavesmire only to find herself short of room over a furlong out, causing Oisin Murphy to switch her markedly left. By the time she got into the clear the leading pair had kicked on, so it was to her credit she finished just two lengths behind the winner Fairyland.

She’s in next month’s Group 1 Cheveley Park and while that promises to be a hot contest, this assignment looks well within her compass with none of her rivals able to match her form. The red-hot form of her stable – 16-55 (29%) in the last fortnight – is another positive and seals the bet.
