Group 3 Assignment for La Figlia

2018-05-10

LA FIGLIA is up in class and down in trip this Saturday when she’ll contest the Group 3 Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes at Lingfield.

The four-year-old daughter of Frankel is one of nine horses declared for the seven-furlong contest.

The Paul Makin-owned filly made her seasonal bow last month when she was fourth in Listed company over a mile at Kempton.

This weekend’s assignment sees her drawn one and she will be ridden by John Egan.

Trainer Jeremy Noseda said: “I’m happy with La Figlia – she is in good order.

“The trip is a bit of an experiment but I think she’ll be sharp enough for it.

“It’s the first race she’ll have a visor on. That will aid her concentration as I feel she has perhaps lacked a bit of focus.

“Most probably in an ideal world she could have done with a slightly better draw.”
