Verdict

Izzi Top had retained a 1000 Guineas entry at the five day stage and Primevere had been supported for the Oaks in the morning but it's hard to get too excited about the form with the victory of DORCAS LANE who had been beaten in two handicaps since winning her maiden although, in fairness to Lucy Wadham's stoutly bred filly, she had beaten all bar the well regarded Barbican last time. The seven runners were tightly grouped for much of the contest with Dorcas Lane getting plenty of cover in behind the leaders; she was momentarily outpaced when the tempo quickened but responded well for pressure and was always holding the challengers. She will stay further than this and is bred to improve with age so there could be more to come but she has done her job in gaining some valuable Black Type. Charleston Lady had shown ability in two polytrack maidens in the autumn and made a pleasing return to action without doing enough to suggest that she'll be taking up her entry in the Oaks although she's also in the Ribblesdale which could be a more reasonable objective. She kept on resolutely after the winner without making any inroads and is entitled to improve again. Primevere had been an impressive winner of a Kempton maiden on debut despite being ignored in the market and it looked as though she was going to swoop and quicken clear with Steve Drowne seemingly travelling strongly. However, any response was not immediate and she could only stay on at the one pace; she still looked a little green and may possibly have been feeling the ground a little and is probably the filly to take out of the race. The form of Izzi Top's maiden win had taken a few knocks and this ground was probably on the lively side for her; this represented a step forwards but her Group One entries look rather fanciful at this stage although she is a half-brother to the late developing Rock N Roll Ransom (whose best form was with some cut) so it would be no surprise to see her leave this form behind later in the season or possibly next.
