'Exciting' Kiyoshi set for step up to seven furlongs

IMPRESSIVE Albany Stakes winner Kiyoshi will step up to seven furlongs for her next start after blitzing her Royal Ascot rivals last week.

The daughter of Dubawi, who races in the colours of Qatar Racing Limited, finished fourth on her debut over five furlongs at Newmarket in April before an easy success over a furlong further at Goodwood last month.

She added to that over the same trip in the Albany when, despite hanging right, she drew clear readily.

The victory earned her a place at the top of the betting for the Qipco 1,000 Guineas and although no plans for her next race have been made, she is set to be tried over further.

Trainer Charlie Hills, appearing in the Jury in Monday's Racing Post, said: "She has done it very well and the way she picked up was impressive. She's very exciting as we hadn’t done a lot with her.

"We're not going to rush her and she'll run over seven furlongs next time. Whether we then go for the Fillies' Mile, we'll see, but it’s a possible aim. She's also in the Moyglare."
