John Gosden’s filly missed her intended seasonal reappearance at York in the Middleton Stakes last week with the ground being too soft for Gosden’s liking

SO MI DAR is as short as 5-6 to make a winning return in the Matchbook Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown on Thursday evening.

John Gosden’s filly was last seen finishing a close third in a Chantilly Group 1 back in October and missed her intended reappearance in the Middleton Stakes at York last week due to the ground.


Gosden said: “I’m not frightened of good to soft, but she’s an exuberant filly and I just didn’t want her first run of the year to be in testing conditions.

“It’s a pity we couldn’t run in the Middleton, which was the plan all winter, but we’ll be running against the boys in the Brigadier Gerard Stakes where it’s going to dry up to be nearly good ground.

“She’s in great form, she needs to get on and race now. We were always training for this time of year but she’s one of those who filly who is quite single-minded.

“She’s rather telling us, ‘I want to get out and race’, so she had better.”

Another filly who also missed the Middleton was Henry Candy’s Chain Of Daisies.

“Like John Gosden we’d hope to go to York but she’s not as good on soft,” said Candy.

“She nearly always needs her first run so I’d be a little wary and it would be nice if she could get a place.

“As a Group 3 winner plans for her are a bit up in the air as the obvious Group 2 for her was the Middleton.

“We’ll take it race by race and she might have to go abroad.”

Algometer, Mondialiste, Baydar, Steel Of Madrid, Red Verdon and Autocratic also run.
