TALK about progressive fillies. Since mid-June, Tregony has won four consecutive handicaps on ground ranging from good to firm to good to soft, in the process improving over 30lb on Racing Post Ratings.
The Clive Cox-trained threeyear-old made an encouraging start to handicaps over a mile at this course in June, but the step up to this 1m2f trip at Nottingham a week later saw her thrive.
Further victories at Bath and
Doncaster showed she was a filly to keep onside, but last week's course-and-distance success was her most visually impressive and her best in terms of form.
The winning margin of a length and a half dojustice to her superiority and, although penalised in this higher grade, she is the one to beat with the in-form Rossa Ryan (2-2 on her) on board.
General Lee ret to the scene of last month's course-and-distance maiden win and, although he did not have to improve for that, the form has been franked by the runner-up Future, who won here last time.
He is a pace angle and given the son of Lope De Vega handles most ground and is a reliable yardstick, he should go well.
The Ralph Beckett-trained Aveta finished tailed off on her handicap debut, but was badly hampered that day and she is better judged on her maiden win at this track over an May, as well as ing bred to stay his trip.

Tricolore and Beautiful Crown are better on the all-weather while Clarendon Cross needs to prove, so the of the rest is Stay Coul, who was not disgraced last time in a softground contest at Sandown that has worked out well.

What they say Oliver Cole, joint-trainer of General Lee He's a course-and-distance winner who's in great form and on a good mark.
Marco Botti, trainer of Tricolore We were happy with his first run since being gelded at Newcastle last time. The conditions should suit as he seems to handle a bit of give in the ground. We know he didn't suit the quick ground at Redcar. This seems to be his trip and we're hopeful he can make the frame.
Brett Johnson, trainer of Beautiful Crown We've all got Tregony to beat but Beautiful Crown (left) is really well in himself so we've got to run him. The ground will suit.
David Menuisier, trainer of Stay Coul He ran really well at Sandown off a low weight last time on softish ground. He stayed on well, so it will be interesting to see him over this trip. The ground should suit and he's carrying a low weight.
