4.00 Carlisle 7F Eternal Listed Stakes (Wed 28th June )

On Wednesday we have Carlisle's feature race day of the season, featuring Cumberland Plate & Carlisle Bell ,though going concentrate on the main supporting race,the Eternal Listed stakes for 3-Y-0 Fillies at 4.00 .

11 Runners declared for 7 furlong Listed Eternal Stakes for three year old fillies .Not the strongest looking listed race,though still open looking contest . The three main contenders are Asidious Alexander , Bletchley & Elusive Beauty .

ASIDIOUS ALEXANDER : Won 2 out 7 for trainer Simon Crisford ,including winning 7F Listed race at Deauville last season , no show in French 1000 guineas at Deauville in May ,though will be suited by this drop in class .

BLETCHLEY : Won 2 out 5 for trainer Ralph Beckett .Had some useful form last season ,including finishing short head 2ND in G3 Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot .Returned to form last time winning 7F Conditions stakes at Leicester in first time hood .Obvious claims in this listed contest ,best form on good/soft .

ELUSIVE BEAUTY : Irish Filly ,winning 2 out 17 for trainer K.J Condon ,including winning 7F Fillies Handicap at Gowran Park on soft ground in April off mark 86 .Also finished creditable 1.75 lengh fifth of 12 in G3 6F Ballyogan Stakes .Will be suited returning to this 7F trip ,wont mind any rain .Solid each-way claims .

VERDICT :  Bletchley looks the one to beat, on the pick last season form ,including finishing close 2ND at Royal Ascot .Looked on her way back after winning conditions race at Leicester last time,though odds around 2-1 don't look great value in open looking race .

At the prices consistent Irish filly ELUSIVE BEAUTY looks the each-way value.Finished close fifth in fair looking 6F (G3) contest at Curragh last time (Staying on strongly at finish ) The return to this longer trip, on this stiff track is sure to suit .The more rain the better for this soft ground specialist.Odds around 8-1 look good value .
