Two nice turns of foot here, but it was RIMTH who produced the more electric burst to see off Sharnberry. Ridden patiently by Christophe Soumillon, the filly still had several lengths to find on the leaders before the furlong marker. However she really picked up well when asked and scooted away for a fine win. Considering how keen she was early on (like quite a few in the race) it makes her performance look even better. She's a very speedy filly and was able to quicken off quite a modest pace, and with no 1000 Guineas entry, she looks unlikely to be supplemented. The runner-up on the other hand may well head to Newmarket. She also came from off the pace, getting a lovely gap between runners when the sprint for home started, and but for the winner she would have been an impressive winner. She travelled well, and saw out the race well, so whilst she isn't in the Guineas at this stage it wouldn't be the biggest surprise if she was supplemented for Newmarket. Third home was Eucharist who also came from off the pace, not getting the clearest of runs when the tempo quickened. She is a credit to connections and just appeared to lack the class of the first two in all probability. Catching the eye in fourth was Pontenuovo. She raced on the far side and didn't have the right horses to chase throughout. However she stayed on well under sympathetic handling and should come on a lot for the run. This was also her first start on ground this quick and she probably found things happening a little too quickly for her when they sprinted; she seemed to stay the trip fine. Breedj took the field along for a fair way but was quite keen early on, as was Darajaat who showed good speed after a couple of furlongs to race prominently considering she missed the kick slightly. Glas Burn is honest and held every chance at the furlong pole but was well-held, whilst there was promise from both Cape Dollar and Mortitia further back. The former raced on the far side and was arguably undone by her draw; she remains capable of better when having the race run to suit, with the step up to a mile sure to be in her favour. Brian Meehan's filly ran on well here having looked to have been a little outpaced when the sprint started and a lack of match fitness may just have been a factor there. Cochabamba stayed on at the one pace but didn't really seem to take a step forward from last-year's form, although perhaps the form isn't amazing as she's pretty much run Cape Dollar to the same mark.
