Natalie’s Joy is clearly a filly with plenty of class, but I never felt last season that she was crying out for a mile and could struggle to execute her favoured “win from the front” tactics over this sort of trip. Magnetic Charm is one of the few fillies in the field who has proven she can see out a mile, finishing a strong fourth in the Group Two May Hill Stakes last season.

The form of that Doncaster contest, however, hasn’t worked out particularly well during 2019 and Magnetic Charm, along with the rest of the field, will be playing catch-up to TWIST ‘N’ SHAKE on Friday.

John Gosden’s filly engaged with a furious battle with Maqsad on her reappearance, with the Oaks contender just shading it on the line as the duo pulled right away from the field. Rab Havlin was then tasked with guiding the ½ shot to a maiden victory over eight-and-a-half furlongs at Nottingham and Twist ‘N’ Shake didn’t disappoint, making all to seal an impressive seven-length triumph.

Gosden’s three-year-old bring the best seasonal form into this race by some distance and there’s no reason why this daughter of Kingman can’t progress further as the season unfolds. Black type is surely just around the corner for Twist ‘N’ Shake.
