Our 2 year old filly, Spice Up Your Life produced a pleasing debut effort at Beverley on bank holiday Monday when finishing 4th of 9.
She was very well behaved in the pre-parade and parade ring, although it was clear she was still holding onto her winter coat a little, hopefully a few weeks of sun will put that right.
She broke well and showed an awful lot of speed and went toe to toe with the more experienced and the eventual winner Zalzilah. The rest of the field appeared to be off the bridle by half way such was the pace being set by us and Zalzilah , that pace told on Spice in the final furlong and she finished fourth losing out in a 3 way photo for second.
Overall a very pleasing debut effort and we always expected her to come on for the first run.
