The super-consistent Miss Dolly Rocker was rewarded with victory at Nottingham on Friday, justifying favouritism to win easily over ten furlongs for her owner/breeder Jennifer Dorey and trainer Roger Teal.

Now three, the May-foaled filly became Frontiersman’s first runner last September when beaten a neck to finish second on debut at Kempton over a mile. She was second again a month later and posted two more placed efforts to close out the year, also being beaten just a short-head at Lingfield in December.

Returning to Bath in May and stepping up from a mile to ten furlongs, Miss Dolly Rocker posted her fourth second-place finish when passing the post a neck behind Ajyad, but was the definitive winner when making her second start of the year in a novice event as evens favourite, winning by two and a quarter lengths off a mark of 73.

Miss Dolly Rocker is the second foal of her dam, the John Pearce-bred Miss Minuty (Verglas), whose first foal, Silverscape was also conceived at Overbury Stud. The four-year-old son of Cityscape is a dual winner, also for the Roger Teal stable, while their dam won six of her 36 starts. Miss Minuty now has a yearling colt by Frontiersman, named Versailles Prince, and she foaled a colt by Cityscape this year.

Frontiersman has been represented by just two runners to date, and we look forward to seeing what his predominantly National Hunt-bred offspring can do in the seasons to come.
