Eileendover is likely to bid for Listed honors at Pontefract after a solid first effort on the flat at Haydock.
Coach Pam Sly wrote in pencil in the Sky Bet Pontefract Castle Fillies’ Stakes on the West Yorkshire track on June 20 for her four-year-old.
Eileendover, who won his first three bumpers before finishing fourth in a sophomore event at the Aintree Grand National reunion in April, lost little in defeat when the finalist from Yesyes, coached by Ralph Beckett , was getting pieces of weight.
“She’s good. I was very happy with her. She was giving the winner 17 pounds, so I thought she was running extremely well. The winner Yesyes, Ralph Beckett’s horse, is very well behaved.
“We will probably be doing a Listed filly at Pontefract for over a mile and a half on June 20th.
“That’s what I have in mind.”
