Jamesbo's Girl: Has won four out of her last five
Alan Jarvis believes that Annie's Fortune can prove her worth in Pattern company when she lines-up for the Sakhee Oh So Sharp Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.
The Montjeu filly wasn't beaten far when fourth to Ollie Olga in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood and that filly goes for the Group One Shadwell Fillies' Mile later on the same card.
"She's never stopped improving and I'm looking forward to running her," said the Twyford trainer.
"She's a really nice filly and will make a lovely three-year-old.
"Michael (Murphy) could not ride her last time as he was banned. He has won on her and gets on really well with her."
Power Of Light made a good impression when making a successful debut over a mile at Newcastle and connections of the Godolphin-owned filly do not expect her to be inconvenienced by the shorter distance.
"Power Of Light has done well since she won at Newcastle," trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni told www.godolphin.com.
"She won nicely on her debut but it's hard to tell how good the race was and we need to run her in a Group contest to find out how good she is.
"I don't think that the step down to seven furlongs will be a problem. She has shown speed in her work and it is quite a stiff seven furlongs at Newmarket."
Third of the Field
Richard Hannon is responsible for a third of the nine runners as he saddles Califante, Light Up My Life and Rayaheen.
"Califante was only just worn down close home in a Listed race at Salisbury and deserves another shot at black type," he told www.richardhannonracing.co.uk.
"Light Up My Life finished third in the May Hill, albeit eight lengths off the first two, and is an improving type.
"Rayaheen, who is one of Sheikh Hamdan's favourite fillies, being a home-bred daughter of Guineas winner Natagora, could not go the pace in the Dick Poole last time and may improve for stepping up in trip."
Jamesbo's Girl has won four of her last five starts but is taking a hike in class.
However, her trainer Richard Fahey is happy to give her the chance at some black type.
"She's got to step up but the owner is quite keen to have a go so we'll have a punt," said the North Yorkshire handler.
