CELESTIAL QUEEN hit the headlines for the wrong reasons at Leicester recently when quickly pulling up after a messy stalls exit caused her jockey Danny Tudhope to sustain a serious knee injury. But, it was a measure of her progress in winning at Redcar and finishing second at Ripon prior to that debacle, that she was sent of a 6/4 favourite for the Leicester race and her current mark remains there to be exploited. William Haggas' Hoodwinker, a runner-up on heavy ground at Haydock on her seasonal/handicap debut is an obvious threat along with Archelois who landed a 7f novice stakes in a head-bobbing finish last time, suggesting this extra furlong will be appreciated.
