Horses To Follow » Jumbly


Jumbly put up a good performance to finish second to Wild Beauty in the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury last Saturday. She was keen early on, it took her a while to settle, but she travelled into her race well on the near side. She quickened up well on the run to the furlong marker, she went about a neck in front of Wild Beauty inside the final furlong, but she just tired inside the final 150 yards, giving best to the Godolphin filly close home and going down by a half a length in the end.

It was a fine performance by Harry and Roger Charlton’s filly on her seasonal debut. She travelled like the best horse in the race to the two-furlong marker, but she just seemed to tire close home as her early exertions probably took their toll. Winner of three of her four races last season as a juvenile, including the Listed Radley Stakes over the Fred Darling course and distance, she is bred to get a mile at least, she is out of Pretty Polly Stakes winner Thistle Bird, but she has plenty of pace. She may get a mile next time, she may settle better next time with this run under her belt and, given that her best performance last season was in the Radley Stakes on soft ground, she will be of heightened interest if and when she gets back on easy ground.
