Primevere is being backed to end a long losing streak by taking top honours in the Eve Trakway Foundation Stakes at Goodwood on Wednesday afternoon.
The four-year-old won at Salisbury last August but has had little success since as trainer Roger Charlton has upped her sights to Group 3 company.
Primevere has run four times at that level this term and two seconds and a third have proved that she is well worth trying in Pattern races.
She chased home subsequent Group 1 winner Izzi Top on her seasonal bow, going down by just under two lengths, while her two most recent efforts have yielded runner-up spots.
The Singspiel filly was beaten a nose at Windsor before failing by half a length to Alla Speranza at Leopardstown earlier this month.
This Listed heat - the fifth race on a card of eight at Goodwood’s penultimate meeting of the season - represents a slight dip in class and while she has something to find with the likes of Ektihaam and Questioning on official figures, the application of a visor could just focus her mind.
OUR TIPS: 1.30 Emulating, 2.00 Backstage Tour, 2.35 Signed Up, 3.10 The Quarterjack, 3.40 Primevere, 4.15 Eagles Peak, 4.50 Sunshine Always, 5.25 Signifer.
PRESS ASSOCIATION TIPS: 1.30 Pythagorean, 2.00 Backstage Tour, 2.35 Man Of Plenty, 3.10 Aegaeus, 3.40 Primevere, 4.15 Enery, 4.50 Ashpan Sam, 5.25 Swendab.
We’ll have a report on the meeting on this website on Wednesday evening.
