Race Report

Shutter Speed showed a decisive turn of foot to run out a comprehensive victor of the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup EBF Stallions Conditions Stakes at Newbury on Friday.

Despite not settling in the early stages, the 5/4 favourite quickened upsides the eventual runner up Raheen House two furlongs out before stretching away nicely to win by two-and-a-half lengths.

The winner’s stablemate Enable was a head back in third and Shutter Speed was providing his trainer John Gosden with a third consecutive winner in the race after Western Hymn and Star of Seville.

The Queen’s Maths Prize, trained by Roger Charlton, was another who failed to settle early on and only managed to beat one home as he failed to give Her Majesty a birthday winner.

Sky Bet cut the winner into 8/1 from 16/1 for the Epsom Oaks.

Sky Bet's spokesperson Michael Shinners said: "Shutter Speed continued John Gosden's excellent run of form, looking very impressive. It appears as though she will now take on an Oaks Trial and looks to be a filly very much to keep on the right side of."

Reaction

Of his two runners, Gosden said: "The idea of running them here was to get another race into them in the hope that they might be good enough to run in an Oaks trial.

"These fillies had only raced once in their lives and are both rated 84, they need the experience and that is why I brought them here.

"I thought the third ran a good race and will probably go to the Cheshire Oaks and we'll have to decide where the other one goes. There are all the obvious races, like York (Musidora).

"The ground was very soft when Shutter Speed ran at Yarmouth and she definitely loved the better ground today."

Shutter Speed's Jockey Frankie Dettori said: "She's strengthened up and she's a classy filly. I think we'll go the staying route and an Oaks trial rather than the Guineas."

Brian Meehan, trainer of the runner-up Raheen House, said: "He's one of the nicest horses in the yard and I've always thought the King Edward VII at Royal Ascot is the race for him.

"I knew they thought an awful lot of the winner and if we couldn't win I was happy being second as I know the third horse is nice as well.

"There are lots of conditions races for him so we'll see where we go next, but I might just try and box clever with him as Ascot is where I want to be with him."
