Michael Fenton has high hopes that Speciosa will run with credit in the Stan James 1000 Guineas at Newmarket in May.
The daughter of Danehill Dancer proved a money-spinner for Peterborough trainer Pam Sly as a juvenile, winning the Group Two Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket on her final start.
“She’s very talented. She’s always showed class and probably improved a bit as the year went on,” Fenton told At The Races.
“She’ll probably go for the Nell Gwyn over seven as her preparation for the Guineas.
“She’s going a bit faster in her home work now and is giving me good signs at the moment. They did a great job with her last year. She’s looking very well but a bit more warm weather would help.
“There were a lot of form horses around her when she won the Rockfel and she’s definitely entitled to have a crack at the Guineas. I’m really looking forward to it. She’s got plenty of class.
“Fingers crossed, I know it’s a bit of an ask but she could be knocking at the door.”
Speciosa is generally available at 50-1 for the fillies’ Classic on May 7.
