SHADEN RE ROUTES TO ASCOT
Providing the ground is not soft at Ascot on Wednesday, Shaden now will line up in the Pavilion Stakes as oppose to the 1000 Guineas on May 1st. She has shown plenty of her trade mark speed in recent work and having galloped on the racecourse yesterday; it seems unwise at this stage in the season to tackle a mile for the first time. Last year at Warren Place we saw her improve throughout the season. I anticipate that we'll see similar progress as this year develops.
