Jamie Osborne and Michael Buckley have been all over the news recently due to the exploits of Toast Of New York.

But they have another smart type in Prize Exhibit and she can land the Country Gentleman’s Association Dick Poole Fillies’ Stakes at Salisbury.

Since winning in Dubai, Toast Of New York has been campaigned in America and ran a blinder in the Pacific Classic recently.

Prize Exhibit is also progressing nicely and a win here may open up some options abroad for her too.

She has two victories to her name already, both by nine lengths, but her most recent success was far more eye-catching than her win on the all-weather.

Her stiffest task to date came in a very valuable nursery at Newmarket, won by Eve Johnson Houghton’s Zifena with Hugo Palmer’s New Providence in third.

Prize Exhibit was fourth, but conceding lumps of weight to that pair so she should be able to turn the tables.

Richard Hannon’s Marsh Hawk is the unknown quantity having won her maiden by seven lengths but she stole a lead on leaving the stalls that day and may have been flattered.

Second behind Marsh Hawk at Newmarket was the Barry Hills-trained Fadhayyil and she should have no trouble opening her account in the second division of the Virginia Walwyn Memorial EBF Quidhampton Maiden Fillies’ Stakes.

Sent off favourite to beat the Hannon flyer, she holds entries in the Rockfel and Cheveley Park and looks sure to benefit from her first run.

Andrew Balding’s Rawaki looks the pick in a tight “CGA” Persian Punch Conditions Stakes.

Only four line up but there is nothing between them on the ratings, although Rawaki went close in a strong renewal of the Geoffrey Freer last time out and that probably represents the strongest form on offer.
