Racing: Tuesday preview

editorial image

Queen Of Skies will not be winning out of turn if she can get her head in front in the toteexacta Handicap at Southwell.

The six-year-old mare looked fairly limited in her early career for Clive Cox and then Tim Pitt, but has raised her game significantly since joining the talented Michael Appleby a year and a half ago.

Since the start of 2014 the daughter of Shamardal has made 10 appearances and as well as striking gold on a couple of occasions, she has filled the runner-up spot five times.

There was a lot to like about her latest effort at Wolverhampton with the way she came home suggesting she is ready for the step up in distance she encounters on her return to Southwell.
