Betty F on course for Cheveley Park after Newmarket gallop

Thu 21 Sep 2017

Betty F delighted connections in a racecourse gallop at Newmaket on Thursday morning as a crucial part of her preparation for the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes at Headquarters on Saturday week.

The daughter of Frankel worked over five and a half furlongs in the hands of Frankie Dettori and finished upsides one of her two work companions.

Trainer Jeremy Noseda is hoping she will have benefited from the experience and is looking forward to running her in the Group One over six furlongs, even though she has only had the one previous outing.

That was in a maiden on the July course, which she won comfortably.

"We're happy and delighted. She will go to the Cheveley Park and Frankie will ride her," said Noseda.

"She's a filly with lots of talent. In an ideal scenario we could have done with another race in her preparation, but the filly only arrived in time to have that run at Newmarket.

"Thanks to Michael (Prosser, clerk of the course) for allowing us to come here and work on the track.

"She's got enough quality in my opinion to take part in the race.

"We've had our racecourse gallop today and that will help with our preparation.

"It's the first time Frankie has sat on her and he liked the filly. My hope is she's learnt enough today and got enough out of it.

"She didn't need anything for fitness. We just wanted the experience."

Noseda is following a similar path to one he pursued with Carry On Katie. She went straight from a debut success in a maiden to winning the Lowther Stakes at York and then the Cheveley Park in 2003.

"Carry On Katie went straight from a maiden to winning the Lowther and we'll keep our fingers crossed for a similar scenario," he said.
