Pam Sly is likely to resist the Cheltenham Festival Bumper for the unbeaten EILEENDOVER – with Aintree and then a Flat campaign instead at the forefront of her mind. The granddaughter of Sly’s 1000 Guineas winner Speciosa stretched her winning run in bumpers to three in impressive fashion at Market Rasen on Saturday. Not surprisingly quotes were flying around for the championship event in March in the aftermath, but Sly favours keeping the filly to her own sex at Aintree before aiming for some nice prizes on the level. “I think the Aintree mares’ bumper is the ideal race for her – I’m not overkeen on the Cheltenham one, especially with a four-year-old filly. I think that race can knock them off their perch, and they have a job to come back from it. With Aintree, I can let her off for a whole month now and bring her back in the middle of February. We’ve had lots of messages, and I did have one man ring, but she’s not for sale. My son doesn’t want to sell – we want the fun ourselves, (and) also we breed as well. We’ve got a few of her relatives to come.”
