Integral: Sandown hopeful
Sir Michael Stoute's Integral looks to make the most of having her sights lowered in Saturday's Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Atalanta Stakes at Sandown.
Having won her first two starts at Goodwood and Sandown in impressive fashion, the Dalakhani filly returned to Goodwood for the Group One Nassau Stakes at the Glorious meeting.
She could finish only seventh there behind John Gosden's Winsili and connections feel that test may have just too soon in Integral's career.
As a daughter of Echelon, a Group One winner herself for Stoute, she is already a valuable commodity for her owners Cheveley Park Stud and the director Chris Richardson expects her to fare much better this weekend.
"I think the Nassau was all a bit much," said Richardson.
"It was only her third run and she was a bit intimidated by it all I think, also she didn't get the clearest of runs.
"She's in good form at home and came out of the race well and I think this race looks perfect to get her going again."
Godolphin have three representatives but there is no doubt Zibelina is their main contender as she is unbeaten in three starts.
Since winning an Ascot Listed race she has also been to France to win a Group Three at Deauville.
She is trained by Charlie Appleby, who also runs Falls Of Lora.
"Zibelina has come out of her Deauville win very well and is a filly that has pleased us every time she has been to the races," Appleby told www.godolphin.com.
"This is another step up as she will be taking on older fillies for the first time. We weren't confident when she won at Ascot or Deauville as she seems to show more on the track than she does at home.
"We are happy with her going into Saturday's race and expect another good run.
"Falls Of Lora is an exposed filly now but deserves to run in this calibre of race and goes into the race as fit and well as she has been all season.
"Sandown suits her as horses come back to her coming up the hill. On bare form, she has a bit to find but is ultra-consistent and one day will hopefully get her head back in front again."
Saeed bin Suroor's Shuruq ran several good races in Dubai but disappointed at Goodwood on her first start back after a break.
"Shuruq did very well in Dubai but we were disappointed with her performance at Goodwood last time," said bin Suroor.
"She needed the outing that day but is in good form now and we will see how she gets on at Sandown."
Clive Cox runs two in the Group Three and while both are priced up at generous odds, he feels they are capable of hitting the frame if they run to the best of their ability.
Winter's Night is 6lb better off with Zibelina for two lengths at Ascot last time out and Aquatinta was just having her first run for the yard in France last time having joined from Henri-Alex Pantall.
"Winter's Night has run pleasingly at Ascot the last twice," said Cox.
"She is lightly-raced but definitely is up to this level at her best.
"I'd be slightly concerned if the ground continues to dry out, however, she'd be OK on good but it might be a bit quicker than that.
"Aquatinta has had just the one run for me in France, where she was a Group Three winner last season.
"She wasn't beaten far at Deauville and works like a nice filly at home.
"It's a competitive race and both are in good form and while they'll need to run to their best to get involved, they both could be."
