Horses To Follow » Inclyne


Inclyne could only finish third behind Pledge Of Honour in the 10-furlong handicap, but she could build on this, her first run since early June. Andrew Balding’s filly just got a little out-paced when they quickened at the three-furlong marker, and she was a little short of room when Oisin Murphy wanted to go forward. Moved towards the outside as they raced to the furlong pole, she kept on well from there, improving from sixth place into third place by the time they reached the winning line, closest at the finish.

She can go well fresh, she won at Newmarket on her debut this season in June, but she hadn’t run in the interim, and she left the impression here that she could do better with this run under her belt. She could improve too for a step back up to a mile and a half, the distance over which she won a novice median auction stakes at Kempton last August. A half-sister to Elm Park, who won the Royal Lodge Stakes and the Racing Post Trophy for Andrew Balding, she should still be capable of going beyond her current rating of 82. She holds an entry in a 12-furlong handicap at Newmarket on Saturday, and she will be of interest if she lines up in that.
