Rizeena: Hoping to follow up Royal Ascot win

Rizeena: Hoping to follow up Royal Ascot win

Clive Brittain already rates Rizeena as one of the best fillies he has trained and is looking for his Queen Mary Stakes winner to confirm that view in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.

Newmarket handler Clive Brittain has had many classy distaffers through his hands in his 41 years with a licence, headed by 1000 Guineas winners Pebbles and Sayyedati.

The latter is one of his three winners of this race, when it was known as the Cherry Hinton Stakes, which he first won way back in 1976 with Ampulla.

Rizeena showed she was one of the leading lights of her generation when completing a hat-trick with a two-length victory in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot.

She is burdened with a 3lb penalty for that success, but the extra weight does not worry Brittain.

"She's done very well since Ascot. She's got to give 3lb away, but she gave them all a two-length beating and more. You have to carry your penalty," he said.

"Her work has been good. James Doyle came in to ride her work at the beginning of the week and he was very happy with her.

"She certainly would be right up the best fillies I've had. I think she's special and I hope all goes well tomorrow."
