EIRENE, impressive winner last time out in a Listed race at Newbury, should go close in a competitive Group 3 at Salisbury today (3.50pm).
The top-rated filly in the race has form figures, 3121, has improved with racing and should cope with the step back up to 6f and better ground than she has encountered to date.
Adam Kirby rides and at 7/2, she has a solid each-way chance. Special Purpose from the Willie Haggas yard looks one of the principal dangers.
Dean also runs three at Chelmsford this evening: Poet’s Quest (7.10pm), Classic Villager (7.40pm) and Soaring Spirits (8.40pm) but Eirene looks the trainer’s best chance of a winner.
