Fair Eva stars in Lowther entry
Frankel's exciting prospect Fair Eva tops 13 two-year-old fillies standing their ground at the confirmation stage for the Sky Bet Lowther Stakes at York on Thursday.
Fair Eva heads the entries for the Sky Bet Lowther Stakes
Wearing the Khalid Abdullah silks immortalised by Frankel, who graced the Knavesmire with victory number 13 in an unblemished 14-win career record in the Juddmonte International in 2012, Fair Eva is set to defend her own unbeaten record.
Impressive on her racecourse debut at Haydock in June, the Roger Charlton-trained juvenile became the first of her sire's offspring to win a Pattern race when landing the Group Three Princess Margaret Juddmonte Stakes at Ascot last month.
Kilmah, runner-up at Ascot, has been left in by her trainer Mark Johnston, while Nations Alexander, who filled second spot behind Fair Eva at Haydock, may try to turn the tables.
Richard Hannon's charge took the Group Three Sweet Solera Stakes at Newmarket on her latest start. She had previously finished third to Roly Poly in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes at the July meeting.
Aidan O'Brien's filly has a 3lb penalty for that Group Two success and Magical Fire, who was half a length away in second spot, is also in the mix for trainer Michael O'Callaghan.
O'Brien is also represented by Brave Anna, who has not been seen since winning the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot.
A fourth Irish possible is Ger Lyons' Velveteen. She got off the mark in a Curragh maiden a month ago.
The Albany second and third, Bletchley and Queen Kindly, another daughter of Frankel, may also go to York.
Completing the baker's dozen in the six-furlong Group Two are Clem Fandango, Fashion Queen, Grizzel and Hope Solo.
