Whatcombe trainer Paul Cole is anticipating a very bold show from Percolator when the daughter of Kheleyf chases a hat-trick in the Hilary Needler Trophy at Beverley.
Wednesday’s Listed sprint, a race won by Mark Johnston’s superstar Attraction in the past, has tempted a competitive field of 14 fillies.
Percolator found only one too good on her debut and has since gone from strength to strength, winning at Lingfield before bolting up by six lengths at Longchamp at the start of the month.
She appears to have the best of the draw and hopes are high she will take a power of beating on the Westwood.
“She’s always gone very well at home and she just got stuck in the mud a bit on her debut at Warwick,” said Cole.
“She then ran a bit green at Lingfield but she came good at Longchamp last time.
“She goes to Beverley tomorrow and she might have a lower rating on her English form but she was quite impressive in France and she has always gone very well.
“She has got a very good draw for her style of racing so we can hope for the best and I think she’ll put up a big show.”
