2:10 Hamilton (29th May)

A relatively restricted auction maiden for colts and fillies over 5f.

Bronze Beau has speed to burn but seems to be regressing. The form of his earlier races has taken a few knocks and it may pay to look elsewhere. He will probably try and gain an easy lead but he has his work cut out today.

Lewyn certainly ran a much better race on her second start and is quite a robust filly. It is difficult to know what that form amounts to but she must have a chance in what looks to be an average maiden.

Tagula Pearl will appreciate this drop in grade after taking on some big guns at York last time. This filly has been progressing with racing and she is quite a good-looking juvenile for this grade. I can imagine McInnes will be doing his best today.

Lord's Seat is a big colt and has progressed with each race and has an element of ability.

Rose Blossom may be the one to note. She is a recent breeze-up purchase and held an entry for the Hilary Needler listed race at Beverley. Fahey does well with his juveniles and features a good win and place rate on debut.

A watching race.

Race review: 'This turned out to be a one-horse race and Rose Blossom won with ease and now goes to the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot. Bronze Beau and Lewyn set off with great gusto, but the writing was on the wall as Fahey's filly always coasted along and soon ran away. The former have an element of ability but both struggled to finish here and they need a weak race to prevail. Dazeen finished clear second but may be flattered. Midgley's juvenile wasn't so much outpaced as held up in rear and ran on through beaten horses. It may have been a fair performance but I would be careful.'
