6:00 Windsor - Speculative Bet (29th June)

A Median Auction Maiden Fillies Stakes race over 5f 10y on good going. A big field of sixteen two-year-olds and a few fair sorts for this grade from leading trainers. Belvoir Bay, Lil's Joy & Zebedee's Girl have ability. 

Once again we have our eye on one of the debutantes. 

David Elsworth is a canny trainer and knows a decent horse when he sees it and Justice Lass could have potential. This Irish daughter of Canford Cliffs out of a twice-winning Listed-placed mare races in the familiar silks of Robert Ng. This February foal, a bay filly, was withdrawn from the sales. 

It is intriguing to consider that she held an entry for one of the major two-year-old races at Royal Ascot. Perhaps that lofty tag was nothing more than pie in the sky but it could well be a sign of confidence. Considering Justice Lass is priced 16/1 with bookmakers she could well be worth an each way bet or backed with hope of being gambled to gain a no-lose bet. 

Not the easiest of races to win on debut but a low draw and potential could have a fight chance. 

Justice Lass 16/1 5th

Note: clearly has ability and if not for being a touch inexperience would have finished in frame
