I believe it’s a fillies and mares race, not a distaff sprint. This aint the good ol’ US of A.
I really like the look of Mango Music in the 4.25 at Newbury. She was sixth in a race at Ripon won by Antica that is working out well (both Bentong and Rochdale sunbsequent winners and Antica upheld then form since) and this filly shaped better than the result suggests as well, third home on her side and not given at all a hard time by Tony Culhane. She has a smart pedigree and her 2 runs to date have been on an easy surface so we know she goes on the conditions.

Those that have raced have shown very little and I think the newcomers can dominate. The three I like best on paper are Eliza May, Moonlight Applause and Theoretical, but the latter doesn’t seem fancied so I’ll try a reverse f/c with the first two
1pt r/fc Eliza May/ Moonlight Applause
1st Eliza May 11/4f<br>2nd Fly Time 10/3
Not overly upset considering the price the winner was.
