Seal Of Approval could aim to get her season back on track in either the Yorkshire Oaks or the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury next month.

James Fanshawe's filly claimed an impressive Group One victory in the British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes at Ascot last October, but following a creditable return in the Yorkshire Cup, she ran no sort of race in the Lancashire Oaks.

Fanshawe feels his filly will improve during the course of the year and is looking forward to getting her back on the racecourse in the near future.

"Obviously she was disappointing (at Haydock). Going into the race she hadn't really got to her best weight. Since then she has come on well and she's moving well," the trainer told At The Races.

"We've got the forfeit for the Yorkshire Oaks next week so we'll probably leave her in that and there is also the Geoffrey Freer, which is a week before.

"We couldn't have run her anywhere (recently) with the way the ground is. We've still got plenty of time with her as she loves soft ground."
