High praise for bright Rainbow

The British Horseracing Authority's handicapper for two-year-olds has rated Rainbow View's performance in the Fillies' Mile as the best for 18 years.

Mathew Tester has handed John Gosden's filly a rating of 118 after she maintained her unbeaten record at Ascot, at the main expense of Fantasia.

"The front two in the Fillies' Mile look like very exciting prospects for connections and racegoers alike.

"I'm looking forward to the rematch in May next year," said Tester.
