Separated by only a head last season, Aidan O’Brien’s Brave Anna and Roly Poly head a field of 11 for the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes, while Cambridgeshire winner Spark Plug features in a competitive renewal of the Bet365 Earl of Sefton Stakes.
BRAVE ANNA and Roly Poly, first and second in last year’s Cheveley Park Stakes, both feature in a field of 11 for Wednesday’s Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket.
Only a short head separated the Aidan O’Brien-trained pair in September and Roly Poly is now 3lb better off. She finished her season running unplaced at the Breeders’ Cup.
