Forever Together

Forever Together could only finish second behind her better-fancied stable companion Magic Wand in the Cheshire Oaks, but she ran really well in defeat.  Settled in fourth or fifth and along the rail by Donnacha O’Brien, she came under pressure when her stable companion quickened from the front as they started around the home turn, but she was short of room between Shailene and Princess Yaiza when she wanted to go forward.  Her rider had no real option but to sit and suffer until they straightened up and, even when they did, there was no gap between horses so she had to come around Princess Yaiza.  She did though and, while the winner had flown, she stayed on well to take second place.

A full sister to Fillies’ Mile winner Together Forever, she didn’t win in two attempts last season, but this was just her third race ever and it was her seasonal debut, so she should come on for it.  She could still be a lively Oaks outsider, she saw out the trip well here, or she could be a Ribblesdale Stakes filly.  She will be of interest wherever she goes next.
