Take a good look at Prize Exhibit

Jamie Osborne and Michael Buckley have another smart type in Prize Exhibit and she can land the Country Gentleman's Association Dick Poole Fillies' Stakes at Salisbury.

Prize Exhibit is progressing nicely and a win here may open up some options abroad for her.

She has two victories to her name already, both by nine lengths, but her most recent success was far more eye-catching than her win on the all-weather.

Her stiffest task to date came in a very valuable nursery at Newmarket, won by Eve Johnson Houghton's Zifena with Hugo Palmer's New Providence in third. Prize Exhibit was fourth, but conceding lumps of weight to that pair so she should be able to turn the tables.

Last time out in a decent little conditions race at Nottingham, she beat a field of previous winners without coming off the bridle and certainly looks capable of holding her own at Listed level, if not higher.

The Barry Hills-trained Fadhayyil should have no trouble opening her account in the second division of the Virginia Walwyn Memorial EBF Quidhampton Maiden Fillies' Stakes. She holds entries in the Rockfel and Cheveley Park and looks sure to benefit from a debut run at Newmarket where she finished second.

Andrew Balding's Rawaki looks the pick in a tight 'CGA' Persian Punch Conditions Stakes. Only four line up but there is nothing between them on the ratings, although Rawaki went close in a strong renewal of the Geoffrey Freer last time out and that probably represents the strongest form on offer.

Michael Stoute's Dissolution was sent off favourite to win a competitive Convivial Maiden at York and the step up in trip for the Betfred Jack Berry MBE Maiden at Haydock looks sure to suit.
