Fillies' Mile Tips: Classy Commissioning To Enhance 1000 Guineas claims with easy Newmarket win

Some 1000 Guineas clears will emerge from Friday's Fillies' Mile at Newmarket.
Some 1000 Guineas clears will emerge from Friday's Fillies' Mile at Newmarket.

A field of eight will line up for the Group 1 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket on Friday afternoon in front of the ITV Racing cameras, and all eyes will be on the red-hot favourite Commissioning, who will look to make it three from three and our man Steve Chambers is finding it hard to oppose the exciting juvenile...

John & Thady Gosden saddled a top-class winner of this race 12 months ago when Inspiral bounded to glory in the one-mile showpiece, and they could have another superstar on their hands in the shape of COMMISSIONING, who rocketed to second favourite in the 1000 Guineas after a mightily-impressive two-and-three-quarter length win in the Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket last month. A best priced 8/1 for the 1000 Guineas, at the time of writing, the daughter of Kingman will now step up to a mile for the first time as that Rockfel victory came over seven furlongs, but nothing suggested that the extra furlong wouldn't make much difference.

A very taking winner on her debut at Newmarket back in late July, Commissioning showed a sparkling turn of foot to turn the Rockfel into a procession and firmly established herself as one of the most exciting juvenile fillies in training this season and she's a red-hot 5/6 market leader to maintain her 100% record. She will have no issues dealing with the tests Newmarket has to offer having shone at the track on both her starts to date, and with more improvement sure to come as she grows with experience she can bound to glory in impressive fashion once again.

Aidan O'Brien has a fine record in the race having saddled three winners on the bounce between 2014 and 2016, but the Ballydoyle maestro could find it tough to reign supreme once again as his solitary raider Library is an 11/1 chance to land the spoils. A winner of a Tipperary maiden on her third start, she failed to kick on when beaten in Listed company last time out at Leopardstown and the daughter of Galileo will have to improve immeasurably for the step back up to a mile, but even she will find it hard.

The vast improver lining up in this event is Harry Dunlop's Polly Pott, who has racked up a stunning four-timer, which culminated with a shock 40/1 win in the Group 2 May Hill Stakes at Doncaster last time out, and the Dunlop team will now try her at the highest level she's been in on Friday. A winner of a nursery off 68 back in August, she's come on leaps and bounds over the last few months and she's entitled to give this a crack and she's a 17/2 chance to do the business here, but this is a whole new level in terms of class, so she may just see her winning run come to an abrupt end.

A runaway nine length winner on debut at Newmarket, Karl Burke's Bright Diamond then put up an encouraging effort next time out when third in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood last time out. Slowly away that day over seven furlongs, she caught the eye staying on eye-catchingly well in the closing stages, so a step up to a mile should suit her and with more to come over eight furlongs then she could be the value each-way play at 17/2, should the dead eight remain in the contest.

A maiden winner at Goodwood, the Richard Hughes-trained Sparkling Beauty was then sent over to France for a Group 2 contest at Deauville and she finished a fine second, so she has to be respected at 9/1, while the abovementioned Burke will also saddle Novakai (11/1), who was beaten by her stablemate Polly Pott at Doncaster last time out, so will have form to turn around with that rival, but is entitled to take her place in the field.

Completing the line-up will be Alseyoob, who was victorious in a novice stakes last time out and is 16/1 for this event, while Ferrari Queen looks to face a tough ask here for Charlie & Mark Johnston, as she was last seen finishing fifth in the May Hill and at 25/1 can be ignored in a race that can see the favourite cruise to victory.
