Illuminate lived up to the high reputation she earned when winning the  Betfred Filly Conditions Stakes at Salisbury in claiming the Group Three Albany Stakes at Ascot on this her second racecourse appearance.  About twenty lengths off the leader at half way she moved smoothly through the field and won comfortably.  She has a wonderful pedigree with her dam being by Green Desert and grand dam by Machiavellian.  Her trainer Richard Hannon states that she is next bound for the Group Two Duchess of Cambridge Stakes at Newmarket in July.  The yearling half-sister by Dragon Pulse sells at the DBS sale in Doncaster in August.
