Karl Burke's dangerously fast Dramatised hosed up in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot and has been rewarded with an entry for the Nunthorpe at York on August 19. The two-year-old Showcasing filly ran on to a comfortable one and three quarter length win from Michael Bell's Maylandandsea which could have been extended to further if jockey Daniel Tudhope had not dropped his whip. Owner Steve Parkin has mooted the Lowther meeting at York and also considered the Prix Morny at Deauville on the same weekend for his speedster. Available at 5/1 for the five furlong Group 1, Dramatised will attempt to become the first two-year-old to win the race since John Best's Kingsgate Native in 2007. "All the horses have come out of Ascot well," said Burke, who enjoyed a special week. "Dramatised will certainly have an entry in the Nunthorpe, but we'll keep all options open at this stage. "I'm not sure there's that much for her before then. It will either be the French race, the Lowther or the Nunthorpe. "It was a nice race to watch, it was a good meeting as a whole." Yorkshire handler Burke also looks to have a useful seven furlong contender with Holloway Boy who took the Chesham at a massive 40/1 on debut. "We've not plans for him at the moment, were just seeing how he comes out of it," said Burke. "We'll maybe look at the Vintage at Goodwood or maybe the Superlative Stakes at Newmarket, something like that maybe."
