Shutter Speed, a debut winner going one mile at Yarmouth last time Oct. 18, was restrained in fourth after breaking alertly in a test annexed by subsequent G1 Epsom Oaks heroine Light Shift (Kingmambo) and G1 Prix de Diane victress Star of Seville (GB) (Duke of Marmalade {Ire}) in recent years. Inching ever closer in the straight, the 5-4 favourite was shaken up to lead just inside the two pole and pushed out in the closing stages to best G1 Racing Post Trophy fourth Raheen House (Ire) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) by an impressive 2 1/2 lengths. “The ground was very soft when Shutter Speed ran at Yarmouth and she definitely loved the better ground today,” said trainer John Gosden. “The idea of running here [against colts] was to get another race into her in the hope she might be good enough to run in an Oaks trial. We’ll have to decide where she goes and there are all the obvious races like York [for the May 17 G3 Musidora S.].” Half to a 2-year-old filly by Champs Elysees (GB), the Juddmonte homebred is out of a winning daughter of G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine Prophecy (Ire) (Warning {GB}), who also produced MG1SW Foreteller (GB) (Dansili {GB}), G2 Prix de Sandringham and G3 Prix Miesque victress Modern Look (GB) (Zamindar), and the stakes-winning Arabesque (GB) (Zafonic), who in turn produced four black-type performers headed by sires Camacho (GB) (Danehill) and Showcasing (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}). Shutter Speed also shares Prophecy as a second dam with MGSW G1 New Zealand Derby runner-up Fix (NZ) (Iffraaj {GB}) and G1 South African Derby and G1 South Africa Classic placegetter Galileo’s Destiny (NZ) (Galileo {Ire}).
