Now that we’re into the second day of the Newmarket July Festival 2015, it is time to check in with the Racing Post for its latest UK horse racing speed ratings. Easily the race of greatest interest to fans will be with the 15:15 QIPCO Falmouth Stakes and the £200,000 guaranteed prize fund.
Friday appears as it if it will be Sunny, while the going is good to firm after the turf was watered. The fillies and mares competing will likely appreciate that the going was not firm and that the turf will be more forgiving.
Lucida is 11/4 favourite and has the top speed rating of 115, but the three-year-old has not exactly been spectacular in winning two races from four in its career.
Bawina has been rated slightly slower at 107, yet has earned five wins from seven career races. The four-year-old is also more lucrative at 7/1.
