Ascot's Naas Racecourse Royal Ascot Trials Day British EBF Fillies' S. offers the G1 Coronation S. hopefuls a chance to get acquainted with the track and Normandie Stud's Queen For You (Ire) (Kingman {GB}-Fallen For You {GB}, by Dansili {GB}) could be one for that contest after earning TDN Rising Star status on Wednesday. Debuting in the mile encounter, the John and Thady Gosden-trained daughter of the 2012 Coronation heroine whose half-siblings include the multiple group winner Glorious Journey (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and who is a full-sister to the listed scorer Love Is You (Ire) recovered from a tardy start to find cover behind the leaders in fifth after the initial stages.

Looming large on the stands' side at the quarter-mile marker, the 4-1 chance quickened smartly to lead approaching the final furlong and was ridden out by Robert Havlin in the closing stages to account for Copy Artist (GB) (No Nay Never) by two lengths. "This filly is still raw, but she has talent," the rider said. "She quickened up well, she'll have learnt plenty and she can only come forward for the run." Thady Gosden added, "She'd been going nicely at home and her mother won the Coronation Stakes, while Kingman was a champion miler. So yes, we would take a look at the Coronation Stakes. It's five weeks away, but another run would benefit her."

Queen For You, amazingly the 31st TDN Rising Star for her sire, whose best in that category so far are Persian King (Ire) and Palace Pier (GB), is the sixth of eight foals and fourth scorer produced by Fallen For You, whose progeny include the multiple group winner Glorious Journey (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and Kingman's Listed Radley S. scorer and G3 Nell Gwyn S. third Love Is You (Ire). A daughter of the Listed Silver Trophy scorer and multiple group-placed Fallen Star (GB) (Brief Truce), she is kin to the Listed Heron S. winner Fallen Idol (GB) (Pivotal {GB}) and to the G2 Lancashire Oaks runner-up Fallen In Love (GB) (Galileo {Ire}).

Fallen In Love was in turn responsible for Kingman's Serve The King (GB), who took the GII Red Smith S. and was second in the GI Joe Hirsch Turf Classic, and also for the G3 Prix de Flore scorer Loving Things (GB) (Pivotal {GB}) who was third in the Lancashire Oaks. Also connected to the G1 Lockinge S.-winning sire Fly To The Stars (GB) (Bluebird) and the G2 Mehl-Mulhens-Rennen winner Peace At Last (Ire) (Oasis Dream {GB}), Fallen For You's 2-year-old filly Fight For You (Ire) is by Saxon Warrior (Jpn) while she also has a yearling colt by Lope De Vega (Ire).
