Good start to Cambridgeshire meeting with Caucus winning the Rose Bowl for second year running ,landing nice gamble 3-1 into 15-8 for tidy £330 profit on the day .
Though 3-1 was available this morning with Hills, no complaints with widely available 11-4 on Wednesday evening .
Moving on to Friday we have no less than five pattern races at Newmarket ,though going concentrate on the day's feature race the group one Shadwell Fillies mile at 3.15 .
3.15 NEWMARKET 1 MILE SHADWELL FILLIES STAKES G1
8 runners declared for Shadwell Fillies Mile on ground described as good /good firm places. This looks to concern the big two Rizeena & Ihtimal
RIZEENA : Useful filly winning 4 from 7 starts , including winning group 2 Queen Mary over 5 furlongs at Royal Ascot .Returned to winning ways last time winning group one Moyglare Stud Stakes over 7 furlongs at Curragh .
IHTIMAL : Big improver since stepping up in trip ,finishing third behind Berkshire in Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot .Followed that by winning both the group three Sweet Solera stakes at Newmarket & group two May hill stakes at Doncaster .
VERDICT : Rizeena has obvious claims after winning the 7 furlong group one Moyglare Stud stakes at Curragh last time ,though has plenty of speed having won over five furlongs three times and has to prove she stay this longer trip .
IHTIMAL is already group two winner over this trip and seemed very well suited to the mile distance when staying on strongly to win May Hill stakes at Doncaster last time. Godolphin have excellent record in the race and can win this for fourth year running. Odds around 5-2 look good value in race that lacks strength in depth .
Of the others Sound Reflection is dark horse unbeaten in two starts and looks open to plenty improvement ,though takes massive step up in class here.
