2015 bay filly by Acclamation ex Divert (Ire) (Averti (Ire))
Deviate has proved a lot of fun this season, breaking her maiden at Wolverhampton in July before going on to finish a fine 2nd under a penalty at Ripon. She is likely to have a busy autumn ahead and her attitude will always stand her in good stead.
Deviate is by the highly successful sire Acclamation who is responsible for the likes of Dark Angel, Marsha and Harbour Watch amongst others. She is a full-sister to two 2yo-winning horses including the very fast and Listed-placed 2yo Reroute, who was a leading fancy for Royal Ascot herself having won a maiden on debut for Ed Walker a few years ago. She looks to be a very sharp filly who should be capable of debuting pre-Royal Ascot all being well.

She is being trained by Tom Dascombe at Michael Owen’s Manor House Stables near Malpas in Cheshire. A modern yard, the facilities are some of the best around and Tom has tasted huge success there not least through the legendary stayer Brown Panther as well as the many sharp 2yo’s he is so adept with.
