6:05 Ascot - Speculative Bet (8th May)

An EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes over 5f on good going. A giant field of sixteen two year olds from leading trainers. Rial was relatively fancied on debut at Windsor but a wide draw and inexperience saw this daughter of Dark Angel outpaced. Although never a danger Marco Botti's representative ran on well under a considerate ride. Interestingly, this bay filly has another apprentice in the plate, which is some ways is a slight negative, but it could well make for a bigger price. The tissue price with Sporting Life is 20/1, which puts some meat on the bone. This January foal is likely to improve a good deal. The downside could be the potential of some well-bred juveniles in opposition although with most debutantes experience will be a plus. Each way claims at speculative odds.   

Rial 20/1 3rd
