Racing: Saturday preview

Lady Dutch made a big impression when sauntering clear on her British debut at Kempton in February.

And she is expected to take a step up to Listed class in her stride as she returns to the track for the Betfred Mobile Snowdrop Fillies’ Stakes.

The four-year-old is bred for the job as a daughter of Dutch Art out of a Montjeu mare and mixed it at a good level for a couple of years in Italy.

While form from the continent is often difficult to quantify, the handicapper was impressed enough to hand her a three-figure rating on her first start for Marco Botti and she looked every inch a stakes performer as she turned in an impressive display.
