Hayley Turner thinks Margot Did can cope with a rise in class in the Group One Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes at York on Friday week.

Michael Bell's charge has won twice in Listed company this season and her big-race jockey feels there's more to come.

"She's been going well at home and it's all systems go for York," Turner said in her column on www.racinguk.com.

"I know it's a big step up in grade, but she's entitled to it after two wins at Listed level this season."

Bell added: "She has been running well this year. She was drawn out of it at Sandown (in the Sprint Stakes) last time and this has been the target since.

"We're hoping for a good draw and, hopefully, nice good ground. However, it's a very tough race for a three-year-old filly."
