Sing aims to hit winning Nell note

Sing Softly aims to put her fitness to good use in the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket.

Aidan O'Brien's filly has already picked up a couple of prizes at the Curragh this season but now tackles the likes of John Gosden's Queen Mary winner Maqaasid on Wednesday.

Just half a length adrift of Maqaasid at Ascot was Geoff Oldroyd's Ladies Are Forever, who subsequently came out and won Redcar's Listed Two-Year-Old Trophy, and she reopposes.

Peter Chapple-Hyam's Crying Lightening won at the Dubai Carnival, while Richard Fahey's Barefoot Lady, Richard Hannon's Sweet Cecily and Paul Cole's Lily Again are other interesting contenders among the 11 runners.
