Runner-up in the Listed Daisy Warwick S. at Goodwood last month, Qatar Racing’s Queen Of The Pride (GB) (Roaring Lion) went one better in Saturday’s G3 Lester Piggott S. At Haydock. Slowly building momentum after a slow start, the Gosdens’ 9-2 second favourite worked her way to the front approaching the furlong pole en route to a short-head success from Lady Boba (GB) (Lope De Vega {Ire}).
