2:00 Newmarket (15th May)

A maiden fillies' race over 6f.

Most of the form horses do not set the greatest of standard. Bell's Ocean ran a fair second to Existentialist although that looked a pretty poor race to me. Ryan's filly probably ran its race and connections will be hoping the step up to 6f will bring about further progress.

Two Kisses is quite an interest juvenile for the Powell yard. A big filly, she was completely outpaced at Warwick and ran on well at the finish making great strides. The form of that race is nothing special but certainly no worse than that of the favourite and over an extra furlong this filly could have a chance.

Both Country Princess and Angelena Ballerina need to improve. The latter of these two ran in a what looked to be a pretty poor maiden at Chester.

The unraced wouldn't have to attain any great level of ability to win this race, however, most seem unfancied in the tissue market.

An open race.

A watching race.

Race review: 'A race full of gambles with both the Swinburn and Botti horses being backed from huge odds on Betfair. None of the form horses had proven the highest of standards and with the majority of the unraced initially disliked (as far as the early betting was concerned) this looked an open affair. Marco Botti's Electric Feel prevailed in a tightly contested finish with Angelena Ballerina, Bella Swan and Silver Symphony in hot pursuit. Bell's Ocean was there with a chance until fading int he final furlong and Two Kisses had a fighting chance for much of the way.'
