Back See Daa

Back See Daa is deserving of another chance after her run in the listed three-year-old fillies’ race at Sandown last Saturday, a race in which she probably wasn’t afforded the opportunity to show off her true ability. Keen early on behind a sedate pace, she was shuffled back to sixth place as they left the back straight, and she lost another two places in traffic early in the home straight. She couldn’t get out when her rider Jason Watson wanted to take her to the outside, and she met traffic when she tried to chart a path among horses. She only finished sixth in the end, but she was only a total of two lengths behind the winner Mystic Pearl. Mystic Pearl did well to win, coming from the rear, because the sectional times tell you that this was a race in which it was an advantage to race handily, but Back See Daa was in an improbable position early in the home straight, and she left the impression that she crossed the winning line with plenty of energy left.

An impressive winner of a novice stakes at Newbury on her previous run, Karl Burke’s filly remains a filly with plenty of potential. This was just her fifth run, and she was solid in the market for this, her first run in listed company. She should do better off a stronger pace over a mile and, a half-sister to Fulfilled, who won over a mile and a half last month, from the family of Carlton House, she could be worth a try over 10 furlongs in time.
