Whether you are a regular on the race track, or just love watching a race, you're probably already aware that the EBF Gillies Fillies Stakes is held each year. This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, at Del Mar. And if you're a bettor, you'll be glad to know that the field is filled with horses you know and trust.
Listed flat race for fillies and mares aged three years and older. This race is run every year in November at Doncaster Racecourse. The race is a good handicap with plenty of horses in it. The race is open to fillies and mares aged three years and over and takes place on Saturday, 5 November, at 1:30pm. Runners will be listed to the ante-post betting markets.
There are a few horses that are looking good for this race, but the main dangers are Life Of Dreams and Darmoiselle. The former has been improving and has been running in better company lately, while the latter dropped down in distance after a Listed victory last week.
Life Of Dreams is owned by Godolphin and was only beaten a length in a Group 3 race in France last time. Her best recent performance came at Taunton where she scored by 16 lengths. Her record from a 130 pound mark should stand her in good stead for the big challenge. The other main danger is Darmoiselle, who is not on the level of her rivals. She has been placed in both Listed and Group 2 races, and is hoping to improve following a run at Lingfield in June.
In the other race, William Haggas' SWEET BELIEVER finished second in the Listed Fortune Stakes at Sandown last month. She has been off the track for the last 12 months but is now backed to get back to winning ways in this race. The runner-up is one of William Haggas' best fillies and will be a big player off the latest mark of 105. This is an open looking affair, so get in early for a good price.
Last year's winner, BREWIN'UPASTORM, will be making a seasonal return and should be back to his best. The last time he ran at this level was in the 2021-22 Flat season, when he lined up against Epatante at Aintree. This is a much easier race than last year's contest, and should see him back to his best. It's also worth noting that the last time he ran at this level was last year, when he came back to form after having minor wind surgery.
Despite the gloomy weather, a lot of horses got the best of their respective owners at the Listed Gillies Fillies Stakes at Doncaster. The contest has been run every year since 2003 and is open to fillies and mares aged three or more. The longest odds are in the hundreds of thousands, which is no surprise considering the quality of horses in the country. This race also has a hefty purse of £90,000, which is not to be sniffed at by any means. One of the contenders is Ralph Beckett's Vesela, who has had a great season so far. She will be lining up in the final field of six along with some of the nation's best young guns. She will be ridden by Charlie Appleby who has some definite talent on his hands. Despite her age, she has been a consistent winner in recent years, winning a treble at Ascot in July and finishing second in the Juddmonte Grand National last year.

The EBF Gillies Fillies' Stakes is a 1 mile contest for three year-olds and older. The event is held at Doncaster and has been contested every year since 2003. The competition is headed by Goodnight Olive, which is the clear favourite for the race. The filly has major claims at Newbury. She has won both a maiden and Group Three at the track and finished a close second to Journey in the Oaks last month. It is possible that the filly could be better suited by a drop to six furlongs. The most reputable trainers are represented here including William Mott, William Haggas and Wesley Ward.
The EBF Gillies Fillies'Stakes is a very worthy competitor to the Ascot Gold Cup, which is the world's most prestigious handicap horse race. The most impressive prize is being awarded to the winner of the race, but there are some notable runners, which include the 'form' favourite, Life Of Dreams. The other notable contender is the 'Mott's Best', which is unbeaten in five starts and has won the Del Mar Grade One. It is also possible that the best horse may be a relative unknown, in the form of Flightline, which has impressed in recent starts. It has also received a number of rave reviews. It has also had the benefit of a bit of blinker magic.
