Michael Bell: Pretty Pollyanna will head to Nell Gwyn before Guineas bid

Pretty Pollyanna: heads to the Nell Gwyn
1 of 1

Michael Bell, trainer of Pretty Pollyanna
We are happy with how she has wintered and the plan is to take her to the Nell Gwyn Stakes. If she’s ridden with more restraint she has every chance of getting a mile and we are keen to give it a go.

John Gosden, trainer of Angel's Hideaway
She’s settled down nicely and the plan is to run her in the Nell Gywn before we think about the Guineas. We think she’ll get seven furlongs but we’ll have to see about a mile.

David Elsworth, trainer of Dandhu 
She is entered in the 1,000 Guineas and also the French and Irish equivalents. She's wintered well and will take in a trial but where and when will be dependent on the weather and ground. She chased home Just Wonderful in the Rockfel last year – and I see she is one of the favourites.

Ralph Beckett, trainer of Dancing Vega, Antonia De Vega, Chaleur and Sand Share
We'd like to run Dancing Vega in the Fred Darling. She's in full training and has had no glitches, so that's feasible at this stage. Antonia De Vega is likely to go straight there. Chaleur will run in a trial and we'll she how she's working. I'm also undecided about which trial Sand Share will go for. 

Roger Charlton, trainer of Fashion's Star
It's early days to know whether she'll run in the Guineas or not. I'm happy with the way she's progressed over the winter, though she hasn't done any fast work yet. She might run in one of the trials and then we'll see. If she does run in a trial, it'll more likely be at Newbury than Newmarket. 

Joseph O’Brien, trainer of Iridessa
She'll start off in a Guineas trial and that'll determine where we go. At the moment, she's a contender for the 1,000 Guineas. I know she's by Ruler Of The World, and her pedigree would suggest she'll get further than a mile, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. We’re looking forward to starting her back and seeing where the season takes us.

Andre Fabre, trainer of Suphala
Suphala is a nice filly. She is a bit untested so far but won her two races very well last year so I wanted to give her a chance to run in the big races. She will go to Maisons-Laffitte for the Prix Imprudence.
