Great Yarmouth’s £40,000 British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Fillies’ S. witnessed the ‘TDN Rising Star‘ display of Jane Chapple-Hyam representative Born To Rock (Ire) (Soldier’s Call {GB}) last year and the extended five-furlong dash played host to another as Cheveley Park Stud’s homebred 2-year-old filly Spherical (GB) (Blue Point {Ire}–Spatial {GB}, by New Approach {Ire}) powered to an impressive success in this year’s renewal. In winning, she provided her second-crop sire with a third Rising Star in five days.

Spherical, debuting in a field reduced by half to just three contenders, stalked both rivals in third through halfway. Easing into the clear for her bid approaching the quarter-mile marker, the 10-11 favourite was shaken up to seize control entering the final furlong and lengthened clear under minimal urging to easily outclass Never Forget You (Ire) (No Nay Never) by an impressive 3 1/4 lengths.

Spherical is the latest of three live foals, all winners, produced by a winning full-sister to Listed Newmarket S. third Inigo Jones (GB). The March-foaled bay’s dam Spatial (GB) (New Approach {Ire}) is also a half-sister to Listed Foundation S. victor and G3 Darley S. runner-up Gabr (GB) (Intello {Ger}). Spherical’s second dam is G2 May Hill S. and G2 Windsor Forest S. victrix Spacious (GB) (Nayef), who placed five times at Group 1 level. Spacious, in turn, is a half-sister to GII King Edward S., GII Connaught Cup and GII Play The King S. victor Dimension (GB) (Medicean {GB}), and hails from the family of Grade II-winning sire Exchange Rate (Danzig).
