I watched the replay of this 2 year old filly’s first race last night in the Listed event on Wednesday night. Pretty impressed by her performance after missing the break and running green. She beat several previous winners in recording a ridden out 2l win.<br>I noticed her time was quicker than the 2yo colts & geldings race later in the race (also involved several previous winners). <br>Have any speed rating compilers given her a rating yet? If so, how does it compare to the top rated 2yo fillies so far this year?<br>Thanks in advance..
I have Excellent Art at high-90s and Drayton in the mid-100s, as far as I can remember.
Where Excellent Art is concerned, the figure is bound to be somewhat subjective unless you factor in sectionals. There were only two races on the 5f course at Sandown that day and neither of them looked to be truly run. One-on-one comparisons of overall race times can be misleading. You do, however, get a bit more of an idea of the apparent discrepancy between the round course and straight course conditions by looking at figures from other meetings at the track around the time.
I took the view that Excellent Art’s overall race time was a good one but unlikely to be 105+, for all that he may well be capable of such a figure.<br>
