Marsh Hawk and Kieran O’Neill will fly the flag for Richard Hannon in Sunday’s Dusseldorf’s Henkel Stutenpreis, a Listed race for three-year-old fillies over a mile which has attracted a field of eleven.
Rockliffe Stud’s daughter of Invincible Spirit was seventh of eight behind Osaila in the Nell Gwyn at Newmarket on her reappearance but is better judged on her fourth place in last October’s Group 1 Fillies Mile.
