Annecdote for Doncaster
Annecdote will try to pick up another nice prize in the Japan Racing Association Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster next month.
The three-year-old began the year as an 83-rated runner but has come on in leaps and bounds this summer, winning the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot before going on to Group Three glory in the Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood.
Trainer Jonathan Portman is now keen to build on that success and has identified the seven-furlong Group Three on Town Moor as a likely next port of call.
"She's come out of Goodwood in very good form. She ran a very gutsy race there, she showed her well-being and probably exceeded expectations," he said.
"She's got an entry in the Istanbul Trophy in Turkey but I doubt we will run there and the plan is to go to Doncaster for the Sceptre Stakes."
