On Her Toes

Betting Tip: @ 6/1 with paddypower

Princess De Lune could not have been more impressive when scoring by four lengths on her Newbury debut (good to firm) last month and the fact Roger Charlton has given her an entry in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes tells you she is highly regarded. But soft ground this afternoon is an unknown and while her sire Shamardal won on such a surface, I’d rather back one who is proven on it.

William Haggas’ ON HER TOES won three times as a juvenile and the first of those came on soft, although she proved her versatility over the ground when winning on good to firm at Sandown later in the season. She seemed to to relish the step up to 7f on that occasion, seeing off some talented rivals in good style, and probably ran to the same level of form when finishing third in a 7f Group 3 on her final start, giving the impression she could do with a bit further. Today’s trip could be ideal then and her experience could be the deciding factor against mainly lightly-raced types who are stepping up in class, with the presence of Ryan Moore on her back the clincher for the vet at Paddy Power’s 6/1.
