The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Mango Diva (3f Holy Roman Emperor-Mango Mischief, by Desert King) continued Holy Roman Emperor’s excellent run when capturing the Listed EBF Upavon Fillies’ Stakes at Salisbury on Wednesday.
Home-bred by the Antoniades family, the progressive filly won a maiden at Kempton in May and looks to be on the upgrade after battling well to win this 10-furlong contest under Franny Norton.
“They didn’t go that quick and maybe set things up for me in front, but she only needed a couple of taps to finish the job,” Norton told PA Sport.
James Savage, Stoute’s representative, added: “She’s well-bred and I would imagine she’ll stick at a mile and a quarter. I should think the boss and the owner will have a chat next week.”
