Timeless Soul

Timeless Soul did well to finish second in the 10-furlong fillies’ handicap at Goodwood on Wednesday. Taken back early on in the race by David Egan, she moved up nicely early in the home straight, and she made good progress to challenge Achelois on the run to the furlong marker. Achelois found plenty in front though, Timeless Soul just couldn’t catch her, and Roger Varian’s filly moved a little to her left close home, but she stayed on well all the way to the line, getting to within a length of the winner by the time they got there.

This was a race in which the pace held up well. Achelois was handy from early, she raced in second place behind the leader Freyja, and the leader kept on well enough to finish third. Timeless Soul was ridden further back in the field, on this, her first attempt at 10 furlongs, and her first run back after a short break, so she probably did well to get as close as she did. It was just her fourth run, her three previous runs were all over a mile, including when she was impressive in winning her maiden at Beverley in May, so she should continue to progress. She stayed the 10 furlongs well too, so it wouldn’t be surprising if she was ridden more forward on her next run over the trip.
