The Paul George-trained three-year-old New Approach filly Brinkleys Katie is offered for sale in 25% shares.
Paul only took out his licence in August 2018 but has quickly established himself as a very astute young trainer who sends out regular winners at an eye-catching strike rate. He is making the most of the tremendous facilities on offer at Higher Eastington Stables in Devon to quickly climb the training ladder.
Brinkleys Katie had three starts as a juvenile last year, all at beyond a mile, earning an official rating of 57 in the process. She has regularly been competitive since returning to action this year, such as when finishing second at Lingfield in March and when third at Leicester in May - behind the former Grp-3 winner Eye Of The Storm. Even her fifth-place finish at Windsor two starts ago reads particularly well, as the winner Cherry Cola has gone on to win twice more to give real substance to the form.
Despite these generally consistent efforts, Brinkleys Katie's mark has declined to just 49, a perch from which she can surely win shortly.
Her profile is further boosted by her unquestionable potential as a juvenile hurdler. Standing 16hh and with a fine physique, there is no doubt she possesses the scope to jump a hurdle. The fact that she stays a mile and a quarter on the flat suggests she will comfortably get two miles over timber.
There are certainly elements to her pedigree which indicate she can make the grade as a jumper.
Her dam Opera Gloves was a Listed-placed middle distance performer whose half-brother Three Kingdoms won the Grade-2 Lightning Novices' Chase at Doncaster. It is also worth noting that Brinkley's Katie's sire New Approach has produced numerous useful juvenile hurdlers, whilst Opera Glove's sire Dalakhani is the damsire of leading NH lights such as the eight-time Grade-1 winner Nichols Canyon and Grade-2 Adonis Juvenile Hurdle victor Zubayr.
With a profile that suggests she can be winning under either code in the near future, Brinkleys Katie looks sure to offer her new connections an awful lot of fun and excitement. And remember, she is based with one of the most progressive trainers in the country.
