Hayley Turner

Momentary carried the Queen’s colours to victory in the Swettenham Stud Fillies’ Trial Stakes at Newbury.

QIPCO 1000 Guineas second Starscope was sent off favourite to further advertise the form of the Newmarket Classic but John Gosden’s filly had to be walked down to post and also proved reluctant to load.

She did, however, jump out well and took the field along, racing a shade keenly in front for Jimmy Fortune, successful on Thursday in the Dante aboard another Epsom hopeful in Bonfire.

Momentary was produced to challenge by Hayley Turner inside the final quarter of a mile, getting first run on Darryll Holland aboard the well-backed Shirocco Star who could be seen travelling strongly.

The two fillies quickened well, racing head-to-head throughout the final furlong with Michael Bell’s once-raced maiden prevailing by a short-head.

The pair pulled almost four lengths clear of Starscope who failed to pick up but, arguably, the biggest disappointment of the race was Fillies’ Mile third Firdaws who never looked to be travelling and finished tailed off.
