The Cheveley Park Stakes is the first of two Group 1 contests to feature on the card at Newmarket, with 13 fillies declared in the 6f contest.

The unbeaten SACRED BRIDGE (15/8) holds favouritism for the contest, after she comfortably made the step up into Group company on her latest outing.

The two-year-old had easily seen off her rivals on her first three starts before thundering down the home straight to win the Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh.

The Bated Breath filly has an exciting future ahead of her under Ger Lyons and she could land Group 1 success at the first time of asking here.

ZAIN CLAUDETTE (9/2) has been a rising star for Ismail Mohammed this season, and she could well land her four wins in five starts for her connections here.

The No Nay Never filly saw off a smart filly on her latest start at York, landing the Lowther Stakes by a length.

That smart filly was Andrew Balding’s SANDRINE (5/1), whose unbeaten start came to an end after finding the two-year-old too tough to break.

FLOTUS (11/1) claimed Listed honours at Ripon last time out for Simon & Ed Crisford, while George Boughey’s CORAZON (12/1) is stepped up to six furlongs for the first time.

TENEBRISM (12/1) is rapidly launched up in class after landing success on her debut for Aidan O’Brien and Stuart Williams’ DESERT DREAMER (14/1) has been fairly consistent for her connections this term.

ILLUSTRATING (14/1) carries some smart pedigree and could have more to offer for Karl Burke while Charlie Fellowes’ EVE LODGE (18/1) struck on her first start on the all-weather in the Sirenia Stakes at Kempton earlier in the month.

HAVE A GOOD DAY (25/1) is given a tough assignment on her first start on British soil for Florian Guyader and George Boughey’s THUNDER LOVE (33/1) will have to prove himself at this level.

Joseph O’Brien’s VELOCIDAD (33/1) and Karl Burke’s GUILDED (66/1) complete the line-up.


  • Zain Claudette @ 9/2
  • Illustrating E/W @ 14/1
