2:10 Redcar (26th May)

A very restricted auction maiden fillies' race over 6f.

Flyinflyout ran a satisfactory debut but some way behind La Pantera at Goodwood. She was just ahead of Anjomarba of Bill Turners, which isn't the greatest of standard. Channon's juvenile often run their best race second time of asking and this filly may improve.

Victorian Art has shown an element of ability but in truth looks selling class. She too has form finishing behind Anjomarba on her last start in a decent event for auction level. Stepping up may help her chances.

True Loves Kiss is an interesting runner. She ran a fair race at Doncaster on debut after getting a very slow start but ran on encouragingly only to be slightly hampered in the final furlong. The fact that she was also entered to run in the Hilary Needler at Beverley brings about more enthusiasm, too.

Belle Eponine comes from a race where the form has been franked and ran on in the final furlong at catterick to suggest a step up to 6f would suit.

The unraced have it to prove with in experience and costing poultry sums. McMahon does well with his two-year-old and has good place statistics. It may be a negative that R. Mullen was originally booked to ride but goes elsewhere.

Hanagan was originally booked to ride Victorian Art but take the mount on Fahey's juvenile, Wigan Lane (of which he is stable jockey).

A race that shouldn't attain the greatest of standards.

A watching race.

Race review: 'This wasn't the best of races although the winner always had these at her mercy with a comfortable win. Gwynedd showed good pace from the start but the chasing pack was close on her hooves at the line. Dance For Julie ran with credit after suffering a slow start and done well to get her third placing. Loves True Kiss was once again outpaced even stepping up this extra furlong. She was green and hung when making a late challenge which may have denied her second. Perhaps a step up to 7f would suit, or at least a stiff 6f. This experience will benefit her. This was a poor race and probably no better than a seller, such was its restrictive nature.'
