Two-year-old Kingman filly Commissioning chalked up her first Group win in the Gr.2 Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket today becoming her sire's fourth 2YO Group winner this season.

Newmarket's Cambridgeshire meeting is always a hotbed of future Classic prospects and the Gr.2 Rockfel Stakes unearthedone of the most exciting from Britain in 2022 as Isa Salman and Abdulla Al Khalifa's Commissioning maintained her unbeaten record.

Impressive in a July Course novice stakes over this seven-furlong trip that has worked out well, the John and Thady Gosden-trained bay was always travelling smoothly for Robert Havlin racing far side halfway down the field. Showing some signs of greenness but also evidence of a huge engine as she arrived into contention running down into the dip, she took the measure of Rage Of Bamby a furlong out and readily asserted on the climb to the line. She had two and three-quarter lengths to spare there over the eye-catching closer Electric Eyes.
