Festive Star is expected to make her presence felt in the EBF Stallions John Musker Fillies’ Stakes at Yarmouth on Wednesday.

A winner at the Norfolk venue last season, Simon and Ed Crisford’s youngster went on to claim a Listed prize in Italy before the end of her juvenile campaign.

She opened her account for 2020 in handicap company at Newbury in July – and having since finished fourth at ParisLongchamp, connections are hoping she can secure further black type in the 10-furlong Listed feature on day two of Yarmouth’s Eastern Festival.

Ed Crisford said: “She’s always shown she wants quicker ground and she’s probably she shown us she wants a mile and a quarter as well.

“She ran OK in France, but there was a bit of a slow pace, as there sometimes is in France. She ran a decent race there.

“I think this race should suit her and Yarmouth should suit her. It does look a good option, for sure.

“She goes there in great form.”

Festive Star is the highest-rated of 14 fillies declared for a race that has been won by high-class performers like So Mi Dar (2016) and Fanny Logan (2019) in recent seasons.

Her rivals include Ed Dunlop’s Virgin Snow – a daughter of Gleneagles out of the yard’s superstar mare Snow Fairy – Roger Varian’s Waliyak and the Sir Michael Stoute-trained A La Voile, who is bidding to make it four from four for the season.
