Charlie Hills: Set to up Ayr winner in class
Coral Mist will head for the vision.ae Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket on October 12 after her last-gasp victory at Ayr.
The Charlie Hills-trained filly got up in the final strides in the Group Three event and will now be stepped up in class and trip.
Hills won the Rockfel last season with Just The Judge who went on to land the Irish 1,000 Guineas.
"She didn't have the run of the race, and got a hefty bump when she was beginning to make her move, so she did well to win," said HIlls on www.charleshills.com.
"It looked like she needed every yard of six furlongs there and the plan will be to step up to seven, with something like the Rockfel a logical choice for this very likeable and well related filly."
Hills has a couple of other smart juvenile fillies who are bother entered to run at Newmarket this week and are likely to be kept apart with Chriselliam and
Kiyoshi heading for the Fillies' Mile and Cheveley Park respectively.
"At the moment our thinking is Chriselliam will run in the Fillies Mile rather than the Oh So Sharp Stakes, and Kiyoshi will probably go for the Cheveley Park rather than the Fillies Mile," said Hills.
