The first fillies classic of the season hasn’t exactly been a punter’s paradise in recent times, so despite Minding looking as though she only has to go down and back to win on all known form, it also wouldn’t come as a massive shock if there was a spoiler in the midst.

One such party-pooper could be JET SETTING (best price 25/1), who has burst on the seen from left-field following two impressive victories for new connections. Since leaving Richard Hannon for a comparative round of drinks in today’s markets, Adrian Keatley’s inmate has made miraculous strides forward, going from winning a humble maiden at Cork to landing a Group 3 contest at Leopardstown on her most recent outing.

Ridden aggressively when hugely impressive on the clock at the former venue, the daughter of Fast Company adopted similar tactics to good effect at the Dublin track when she accounted for plenty of strongly-fancied and well-regarded rivals. The speed figure she posted that afternoon also suggests there was no fluke about the performance and off the back of that success, she thoroughly deserves a crack at a big pot while in her current wellbeing.

Clearly at her best when there’s plenty of give in the ground, her chances would increase immeasurably if Newmarket were to encounter the amounts of rain set to fall in the area towards the weekend and even though she still has plenty to find on the bare bones of her overall form, the ability to handle such conditions if they were to change, would count for more than just pure weights and measures.
