1m (Str) bet365 May Hill Stakes (Group 2) (Fillies) (Class 1) (2yo)
LILAC ROAD looks a big price in this after breaking the course and distance track record for two-year-olds last time out. She only received a rating of 86 for that all-the-way success and I suspect that significantly underestimates her ability. The horse who followed her home had previously finished in front of her and was a 1/6 hotshot with a Group One entry from the Gosden yard, while the third and chasing pack were ten lengths and further adrift. It looks like strong juvenile form, basically, and 11/1 in a nine-runner field is a very nice each-way price.
