Mince: Ran on well to win the Listed race

Mince: Ran on well to win the Listed race

Roger Charlton's Mince continued her rapid progress this season by winning the British Stallion Studs EBF Flying Fillies' Stakes at Pontefract.

The three-year-old ran out a ready winner on Shergar Cup day at Ascot last Saturday and carried on the good work in this Listed contest in West Yorkshire.

Frankie Dettori's mount (9-4 favourite) jousted for the lead with La Fortunata from the outset before gaining a definitive advantage passing the one-furlong marker.

Ultrasonic finished strongly for the Sir Michael Stoute team, but was a well-beaten two lengths away.

Artistic Jewel claimed third spot.Dettori told Racing UK: "She's come on from strength to strength.

"She won really well at Ascot and has now won a Listed race, so I guess the next step would be a Group Three somewhere.

"The ground is important to her - she's got a very quick little action.

"Sometimes fillies turn the corner and improve, especially with the weather, and there'll be another good day for her."
