Filly has Salisbury win in Sightline.

SIGHTLINE is bred to be better than her rivals in the EBF Stallions Breeding Winners Margadale Fillies' Handicap at Salisbury and she can continue her progression.

Ralph Beckett's youngster is a daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar out of his Oaks winner Look Here so she should be able to take advantage of her opening handicap mark of 77.

Fourth in a Doncaster maiden on her debut last year, that looked a strong race on paper. The winner, Zest, was talked of highly over the winter but has disappointed since.

Nevertheless, Sightline stepped up on her debut when sent to Beverley in April and the fourth has come out and won nicely at Haydock.

Beckett has kept her at the same 10-furlong trip but the win should have sharpened her up mentally. Roger Charlton's Horrah ran a nice enough race on his first outing to be of interest in the second division of the Bathwick Tyres Maiden.

Already gelded and sent off at 33-1, the omens were not good at Doncaster in April.

However, he defied those worries finishing fourth to the useful Forge, who has subsequently finished third in a Listed race behind Zonderland.

Charlton's are very rarely fully tuned-up first time out so we can expect a good deal of improvement.
