Charlie Fellowes is confident Snazzy can put a disappointing Royal Ascot display behind her in the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury on Saturday.
The Highclere Thoroughbred-owned filly pushed Signora Cabello close in a Listed race at York in May, but was then well beaten by the same rival in the Queen Mary.
“Snazzy was heavily in season at Ascot – Stevie (Donohoe) said she felt as flat as a pancake and was not the horse that he knows,” said Fellowes.
“On a very strict form line, we should have been bang there because we were only beaten a length and a half by the winner at York. We just didn’t turn up at Ascot, but she ovulated the following day and that has to be a very fair excuse.
“She is in good form now and this has been the plan since. She has had a clear run through and we are hopeful of big run.”
She may meet Signora Cabello again on Saturday, although John Quinn’s filly also has the option of Sunday’s Prix Robert Papin in France.
