Thesme given Ayr target
Thesme will have her sights lowered next time out for the Scottish Sun/British Stallion Studs Ebf Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes at Ayr on June 24.
Fifth of 19 in the Nunthorpe behind Mecca's Angel last summer, she finished the season with a second to subsequent Temple Stakes winner Priceless.
This season Thesme has shown little in two starts but trainer Nigel Tinkler hopes a drop in grade will help her return to form.
"Thesme likes top of the ground so there was no point in sending her to Haydock for the Achilles Stakes," said Tinkler.
"She'll go to Ayr next, there's a fillies' Listed race worth #50,000 for her.
"She's just taken a little bit of time to come to herself this year but she's getting there."
