The highlight of Wednesday’s racing is Upavon Fillies’ Stakes Tips from Salisbury, which is a Listed contest.

This is a 1m 2f contest for 3-year-olds plus, and there are a couple of clear big contenders going head-to-head.

Upavon Fillies’ Stakes Tips look as if it may all boil down to a clash between CLIMATE and ROSE OF KILDARE.

For this Upavon Fillies’ Stakes Tips preview we look at each of the runners and size up the latest odds.

Climate 11/8 FAV in Upavon Fillies’ Stakes Racing Odds

CLIMATE is the current 11/8 favourite at the head of the market for Upavon Fillies’ Stakes Tips* (odds recorded at 17:16 GMT on August 9th, 2022 at Coral).

She makes her first run for the Gosdens on Wednesday, having left Jessica Harrington. Climate was a good reliable performer for her previous yard.

At the start of the season, Climate took a fourth-place finish at Newmarket in a Group 3 contest.

She was then pushed up to a longer one-and-a-half-mile trip at Haydock. The staying power wasn’t there on the day.

Climate, therefore, takes a cut in the distance, which puts her right in this one. She should be a big player on the day.



Rose Of Kildare a clear threat

If there is any hint of a wobble from Climate in this fixture, then ROSE OF KILDARE is likely to be ready to pounce.

She is one of two that Mark Johnston has in the fixture. Rose Of Kildare is a three-time Group 3 winner.

Rose Of Kildare returned after a long break to get back into things this season.

After getting rid of some rust, she has looked in the mood the last two times.

In Listed efforts at Newmarket the last twice, Rose Of Kildare has banked back-to-back runners-up finishes.

There should be plenty more to come from the 9/4 shot* (odds recorded at 17:16 GMT on August 9th, 2022 at Coral).

Morning Poem can mount a challenge

Mark Johnston’s other entry is MORNING POEM and she is no forlorn hope either.

She is a longer 7/1 poke, but claims are there * (odds recorded at 17:16 GMT on August 9th, 2022 at Coral).

Morning Poem has taken on 10f trips the last twice at Newmarket in handicaps.

There was a victory and then a runner-up finish from her in those.

This doesn’t really look to be too much more of a challenge in terms of opposition than what she has faced recently.

Morning Poem may well prove to be the best of the rest, even if she can’t break the big two.

Kind Gesture not out of the picture

While we are now in the realms of looking at outsiders for the Upavon Fillies’ Stakes tips, KIND GESTURE is interesting.

It’s very early days for his still, but trainer Roger Varian will be happy with her progress.

Kind Gesture has taken two wins in four runs so far.

She couldn’t complete a hattrick when she was moved up to Group 3 last time out.

It looked like her current ability level was stretched on the day there at Ascot.

The 8/1 shot may need a chunk more progress for win purposes* (odds recorded at 17:16 GMT on August 9th, 2022 at Coral).

But the place claims are not unreasonable in racing tips for the Upavon Stakes.

The rest of the runners

STARLIGHT hasn’t found the form this season that she produced during 2021. She took a couple of handicaps last year. Her reappearance this term at Group 3 in May was good, taking a fourth-place finish. Starlight looks to have gone backwards the last twice, however.

GATECRASHER GIRL came into the new season with a bang, completing a hattrick. She was a good runner-up as well at Ripon last time out at this distance. Gatecrasher Girl is likely going to need a lot more to deliver the same kind of form at this level.

ROUSAY has had a good consistent season without having landed a victory for the campaign. She has been in the frame in all five handicap efforts this season. She was a runner-up at Glorious Goodwood last time out, but this looks tougher.

Predictions & Tips for Upavon Fillies’ Stakes Racing Odds

The first selection for Upavon Fillies’ Stakes tips is ROSE OF KILDARE at 9/4* (odds recorded at 17:16 GMT on August 9th, 2022 at Coral).

Her current form reads well, taking runners-up spots at the Listed level the last twice. She may not need to find too much more to get her nose in front.

CLIMATE is an obvious threat as the 11/8 favourite* (odds recorded at 17:16 GMT on August 9th, 2022 at Coral).

She ran with a lot of credit up at Group 3 last time out, so has to firmly be on the radar for this contest.

Filling out the selections is KIND GESTURE at 8/1* (odds recorded at 17:16 GMT on August 9th, 2022 at Coral).

She looks an exciting prospect and could come on now dropping in grade from her recent Ascot effort.
