Verdict

A really taking debut from DEITY although it should be noted that this was one of the slower times on the day. However let's take nothing away from the winner who travelled well throughout, and really looked like a professional filly. She was settled into midfield after an alert start and was always getting a nice tow through the race from a combination of Queens Troop and Flashbang. Ryan Moore pushed her closer to the pace a couple of furlongs from home and she showed a very willing attitude to take up the running under just hands and heels. Once in front she lengthened away and certainly wasn't stopping at the line; she has an entry in the Irish 1000 Guineas and looks worth a crack at it, as the mile trip certainly won't be an issue. Second home was Flashbang who was in the pole position throughout. She easily brushed aside Queens Troop two out and tried to make a race winning move but just found the winner on the outside too strong. She showed a great attitude to see off Heatherbird on her inside, and should find a lesser maiden falling into her lap in the next month. Third home was To The Spring who travelled alongside Deity for most of the race. Like the winner she was nicely settled and seemed to know her job first time up. Kieren Fallon just had to wait a second to make his challenge at the two furlong pole which halted her momentum slightly but she ran on to the line and although clearly third best, still impressed. As did the fourth home Heatherbird, who was very well-backed. She spoiled her chance a little by pulling too hard in the early stages and would have preferred a stronger tempo to chase. She made up her ground nicely on the rail but just ran out of steam in the final furlong; she should come on for the outing and she looks the sort of scopey filly who can go on to better things. The first four were miles clear of the Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum pair. Elraabeya wasn't swiftly into stride and although she latched onto the pack, one felt that she was never going to feature. She was outpaced before three furlongs out and seemed to get a bit unbalanced in the dip. Her jockey looked after her and she was eased significantly. It should be remembered that the trainer's previous winners of this race already had experience, so expect her to fare better next time. Close up to her at the line was Tanassuq who was as green as grass. She fluffed the start, couldn't go the pace, but then stayed on fairly well late on. She is beautifully bred (as you'd expect) and will be more effective over a mile later in the season when her trainer's horses start to fire.
