The bookmakers may have disregarded the chances of Ananya (Newmarket, nap, 3.45) in today’s Sweet Solera Stakes, but that could prove a mistake if her latest victory is to be trusted.

Ultra Violet, an impressive eight-length scorer on debut at the July course, is favoured and it is not difficult to make a case for a filly which gave away ground from the stalls before storming home.

However, the time of the race was far from spectacular and some onlookers felt Ultra Violet benefited from a pace collapse and a distinct advantage in being able to race on a favourable stands’ side rail.

In fairness, it appeared a very useful performance even if the race hasn’t worked out that well, but flat seasons are littered with impressive maiden winners who fail to mix it in Group company. 

With that in mind, I prefer the claims of Ananya who appears a tall price this morning judged on the demolition job she carried out over course and distance three weeks ago.

Rider Brett Doyle was impressed with his filly that day and he will be more than happy if some of his rivals blaze away at a good pace here given the way Ananya made light work of the seventh furlong.

Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup day is as popular with some as Aussie batsman David Warner at a Barmy Army reunion, but it always attracts huge crowds and is an innovative change from the norm.

The meeting offers DANZENO (Ascot, 1.05) a great chance to continue his recent renaissance, while trainer William Haggas will be relieved Jamie Spencer has been paired with VICTORY DAY (Ascot, 4.00) in the finale after the combination performed so well at York last time.
