REYTA Finalist Just Beverley shortlisted nominee o2 community publication award 2017
Kodyanna 8095


Connections of Kodyanna are keen to run the filly in the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot after she dazzled in the Hilary Needler Trophy at Beverley on Saturday.

The two-year-old daughter of Kodiac stepped up from an encouraging debut at Nottingham last month to take the £35,000 fillies' sprint by a head in a thrilling finish.

Deia Glory looked to have done enough from the front, but the Paul Hanagan-ridden Kodyanna (4-1) held sway at the death to fuel Royal Ascot ambitions.

Kodyanna’s mother, Jadanna, fittingly won the Hilary Needler Trophy in 2012 for owners the Cool Silk Partnership, who also claimed top honours with Chica La Habana in last year's renewal.

Cool Silk partner Peter Swann, who is also chairman of Scunthorpe Utd, said: “She’s magnificent and will come on a lot for that.

“She was a bit unlucky on her first start as she got hampered, but we knew she was a very talented filly.

“We like to go to Ascot, so the plan is to hopefully to go to the Queen Mary. It’s a bit tight in terms of time, but if she comes out of it, that’s where we’ll go.”

“We think there’s a lot more to come from her."

Hanagan added: “She worked really well the other day and is very, very tough.”
