On Saturday we have plenty top quality action ,though the racing looks very tricky this weekend with plenty thunderstorms forecast .For the blogs main bet we go to Newmarket for 7 furlong fillies listed race at 4.05.
4.05 NEWMARKET 7F ETERNAL LISTED STAKES :
10 Runners declared for 7 furlong fillies listed race on ground described as good/firm .This doesn't look the strongest listed race with the three main contenders on official ratings All Along ,Evita Peron ,Manderly .
ALONG AGAIN : Won 6 furlong maiden at Lingfield last July & then finished excellent third in G3 Princess Margret stakes at Ascot two weeks later .However was very disappointing on her first start this season finishing last of 17 in Nell Gywn Stakes at Newmarket (Played up in stalls) .Will need bounce back after that poor run,though can't be ruled out if reproducing her Princess Margret form.
EVITA PERON :Progressive filly ,won 19 runner 7 furlong maiden at Newbury in April in good style .Followed that with good second in conditions race at Ascot ,just getting touched off by Adhwaa on soft ,though showed improved form last time finishing close fourth in G2 German 1000 guineas.Obvious claims in this listed contest ,any rain would also suit .
MANDERLY : Finished excellent fourth in 1000 guineas at Newmarket at 100-1 behind Miss France ,followed that winning weak 1 mile maiden at Nottingham last time .Not easy to assess as had looked disappointing last season ,though obvious claims if reproducing her Guineas form .
VERDICT : Manderly is clearly the one to beat if reproducing her guineas form ,though she seem get easy lead that day and it looks doubtful she can reproduce that form .Looks worth taking on at around 11-4
EVITA PERON looks to be improving with every race .The form of her fourth in German 1000 Guineas last time looks solid form and she can land this listed contest .Odds around 9-2 looks very fair value.
