It would be reasonable to call yesterday something of a mixed bag; Chromium ran with promise, going on after the turn in, which is always good to see; she will improve for sure for the run and confirmed the Yard's overall view that she has a decent chance of being really competitive and effective in early season Nurseries.
Sellingallthetime regained a fair degree of competitiveness and could almost be called the winner as they turned in, albeit off a reduced mark, and should not be far away next time.
Four Mile Bridge, although not getting in the frame to the detriment of the each way play, again showed real promise, keeping on nice and straight under the stands rail throughout the last quarter of the race; although not immediately apparent from his pedigree a step up in trip might do the trick next time.
The Fillies Handicap produced the 'mixed' element of the Bag; Born to Please simply wouldn't let herself down on the ground; Chantresse, who became an even bigger part of the 'mixed' element seemingly took a dislike to be squeezed up and short of room out of the loop and declined to exert herself overly much thereafter; we need to think carefully about how to get her to express her real ability on the racecourse going forward.
Cala Sveva, who has had a short break to strengthen and mature, goes to Bath tomorrow evening.
