Owned by Mr Jon Shack, Dealer’s Choice had acquitted herself creditably since going down by three-quarters of a length on her debut at Newcastle in the autumn, hitting the frame on a further three occasions.
With first-time cheekpieces replacing a hood, Dealer’s Choice made no mistake at the sixth time of asking, grabbing the favoured stand-side rail from a good draw in stall six and powering clear inside the final quarter mile to win by an eased-down eight lengths.
A daughter of Exchange Rate from an excellent American family that includes G1 Prix Morny-winning speedster No Nay Never, Dealer’s Choice has an official rating of 78 and she ought to be capable of further progress throughout the course of the summer.
Roger said: “Dealer’s Choice is a talented filly and the first-time cheekpieces have helped her put it all together here.
“While this was not a deep maiden on paper, she could not have won more impressively and as a well-bred, good-looking sort who is lightly raced, there is no reason to think she cannot win again switched to handicaps.”
