Analysis

BEST TERMS may not be the biggest but she's quick, talented, and on this evidence, the best juvenile filly around. She was quickly into stride under Richard Hughes, taking two lengths out of her rivals immediately. She dictated her own tempo, whilst racing quite keenly, but had all of her rivals bar Fire Lily on the stretch with two furlongs to run. When that rival drew alongside with 300 yards to go, Hughes didn't panic, and once he asked his filly to go and win her race she duly responded. The daughter of Exceed And Excel was a length and three quarters clear at the line, and wasn't hard pressed to win by that far. She doesn't have the physical scope of some of her rivals but she has plenty of stamina in her pedigree to suggest that the 1000 Guineas is not pie in the sky. In the meanwhile she'll head to the Cheveley Park, and certainly won't be 11/1 there. It should be mentioned that she had suffered an over-reach after her Queen Mary win, and that may have played on punters' minds. Runner-up Fire Lily ran very well, and this trip seems to suit her well. David Wachman's charge was nicely settled in behind the pace and was in the perfect position to launch a challenge. She came to win her race but just found a filly too good for her, however she was clear of the third home, and she looks well above average. Hello Glory ran a blinder in third, especially considering this was her first run outside of maiden company. She was held up early on but made her ground up well between rivals and did by far the best of those coming from off the pace. She seemed to appreciate the dig in the ground and will have no trouble getting another furlong sooner rather than later. Caledonia Lady just looked to be outpaced by those ahead of her, whilst After travelled very strongly but the response when asked to quicken wasn't immediate. Inetrobil raced prominently and just looks to lack the class to be a serious player at this level, whilst Shumoos came in for good support but, like Angels Will Fall, was far too keen in midfield and neither finished their race. Both remain capable of better when settling. Gamilati was held up but failed to pick up at all. Her Cherry Hinton win is not working out at all well and she has a little to prove now, although a stiffer track would be more in her favour.
