Just what the Dr ordered !

Prescription a 5 year old Pivotal mare ran on in good fashion to take the 6f Listed Race for fillies at Nottingham on Saturday beating Serious Attitude and Tropical Treat. The time was fast by 0.16s and the first 4 pulled 2 3/4 lengths away from the others. The winner was hampered early on but when she got going down by the rail she fairly flew along to be well on top come the finish. Having only had 11 starts previously she is still open to improvement and being by Pivotal she will improve with age. She is currently rated 95 but the 2nd here was rated 109 so an increase looks likely, however the 3rd and 4th were only rated 87 and 80 so the handicapper may be lenient this time.

Of those behind R. M. Beckett's 3yo Tropical Treat in 3rd was having only his 3rd run and if he isnt raised too much for this effort then he would surely command respect in a 3YO 6f handicap if his connections were to take that route.
Serious Attitude hadnt run for 9 months and ran a promising race in 2nd after having been impeded at a crucial stage of the race and this Cheveley Park winner looks likely to taste victory again soon.
