Ryan excited to unleash French recruit Marly at Chelmsford
Filly lines up in conditions heat on Thursday.John Ryan hopes his “exciting prospect” Marly can book her ticket for Good Friday at the first attempt in the chelmsfordcityracecourse.com Fillies’ Conditions Stakes. Formerly trained by Andrea Marcialis, the four-year-old has won three times and has solid form at Listed level. Ryan has booked Jamie Spencer, who has already ridden the filly on the Newmarket gallops. “This is obviously Marly’s first start for us and, with a filly such as her, we have to plan our races a little bit more,” said Ryan. “Her winning form in France was predominantly over six furlongs, although she did win over an extended six at Chantilly, and the majority of her better form has probably been on the turf. “Her work has been good since she arrived from the sales. We have gone steady away from there and I think she is ready for her first run. Jamie was pleased with the piece of work she did at the weekend. “This is our first step forward and will be a bit of a learning curve, but we think she is an exciting prospect and can hopefully run a nice race.” Marly is joint top-rated with James Tate’s Shimmering Dawn on 97. Quickstep Lady, Queen’s Course, Declaring Love, Amber Island and Ikigai also run.
