Sir Michael Stoute

Noon Star marked her return to action in emphatic style, as she landed success in the Fillies’ Novices Stakes at Wetherby on Sunday.

The three-year-old was nudged along by Richard Kingscote to take the lead at two out, pushing into front of the leading Loving Dream.


The filly moved a length ahead with a furlong to go and she kept on well to clear away from her rival in the final strides, winning by two and a half lengths.

Sir Michael Stoute’s progressing sort saw her price cut for The Oaks following the victory, as she was slashed from 25/1 to 14/1.

Jaramillo showed his potential at Leicester 24 hours earlier when the colt got the better of market favourite Possible Man in a 1m2f novice stakes at Leicester.

Roger Varian’s three-year-old challenge Stoute’s runner at two out before taking the lead in the final furlong.

He did begin to wander in front, but the son of Oasis Dream was always doing enough to land success by three-quarters of a length.

Varian’s prospect still holds an entry for The Derby, with his price being shortened from 80/1 to 50/1.

Dhushan cruised to victory at Haydock on Saturday, coming from last to first to win a 1m4f novice stakes.

The three-year-old justified his short odds of 1/5 to claim success, as William Haggas’ colt picked off the field before pulling away to win by three lengths.

Dhushan’s odds for The Derby were cut from 66/1 to 33/1, but it’s likely he will be aimed for handicaps this season instead of the Classics.
