Charlton keeps the faith with Fair Eva

Roger Charlton is optimistic Fair Eva can still develop into a leading contender for this year's Qipco 1000 Guineas.

Fair Eva: Roger Charlton is keeping the faith

After having blown away her rivals in impressive fashion in a Group Three at Ascot on her second start in July, the daughter of Frankel suffered odds-on reversals in both the Lowther and the Rockfel.

Despite those setbacks, the Beckhampton trainer believes the three-year-old, who is quoted between 8-1 and 16-1 for the fillies' Classic, still has much to offer.

Charlton said: "Fair Eva has done very well and looks very well. She has grown a lot and put weight on.

"She is a bigger filly than this time last year.

"We will see how she goes in the spring, but hopefully she might be a Guineas filly."

Charlton revealed fellow Frankel offspring Atty Persse is likely to be upped in trip when he makes his return to action.

The three-year-old cast a big impression on his sole run last season, when he made a winning debut at Sandown in September, and was subsequently sold to Godolphin.

Charlton added: "Atty Persse has done well, but there are no obvious plans. He probably wants a mile and a quarter to begin with."
