The highlight of today’s Newmarket card is the Shadwell Fillies’ Mile in which the first three home from Doncaster’s May Hill clash again.
Lyric Of Light and Fallen For You fought out a tremendous finish a fortnight ago and rightfully head the betting here, as that is easily the strongest form on offer.
However, despite the fact that she needs to step up massively on all known form, the highly regarded Firdaws (3:00) could be a different proposition over a mile and could be a viable each-way alternative (trading at 5/1 on Thursday evening).
Roger Varian’s daughter of Mr Greeley is out of Oaks winner Eswarah and looked better the further she went when winning a Salisbury maiden last time.
With the passing of Michael Jarvis earlier in the week, the selection could prove a fitting winner of the Group 1 contest.
