Platinum Jubilee Stakes: Highfield Princess
Unexposed at this trip and was an easy winner at York, in a fast time. Finished 6th in this race last year and did well from a poor draw. Won't take much improvement to see her in the places.
Highfield Princess absolutely destroyed the field in the Duke Of York Stakes and although this is clearly tougher she shouldn’t be discounted. That was only her second run at 6f and the way she travelled suggests she has the speed to turn into a sprinter. She is unexposed at this trip therefore her apparent improvement in form is logical.
A year ago she finished 6th in the race and was arguably unlucky given she was drawn high and raced away from the main group. She was only beaten 3.25 lengths, has a (potentially) better draw this time and has probably improved also. Her speed rating at York is the largest i’ve given to the UK sprinters so far this season and that makes her a good each way bet with Betfair paying 6 places at 1/5 odds.
