Speculation over who Roly Poly may be named after has never been resolved but nobody can dispute she is a classy filly.

As a two-year-old, she won two of her eight races and both of those victories came in pattern company, with the highlight being her success in the Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes at Newmarket.

She also finished runner-up in the Group 2 Lowther Stakes at York, and went down by only a short head to stablemate Brave Anna in the Cheveley Park Stakes.

As a three-year-old the daughter of War Front has continued to excel at the highest level, chasing home Winter

, another of her stablemates, in the Irish 1000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.

And with no Winter to contend with, she duly went one better in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket at the July meeting a year on from her Group 2 win there.

Winning owner Michael Tabor said: “It’s been a good day at the office, as they say. She loves the ground, that’s for sure.

“That was pretty straight forward actually, I know it’s easy to say afterwards. Ryan [Moore] said in the paddock that he thought it would be best to take her to the front and he did. She did it well and she’s a good filly.

“She’s had some near misses but she’s a tough, hardy filly. She’s small but she battles well and this ground really suits her well, so we couldn’t be more pleased.”

Her attitude served her well when she came out on top in a blanket finish to the Group 1 Prix Rothschild at Deauville, and then on her penultimate start she again proved resolute in landing the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes back at Newmarket.

She signed off for the year with a below-par run at the Breeders’ Cup but don’t hold that against her when she returns in 2018.

Like so many of her sire’s stock, she enjoys very quick ground.
