Dream Today has date in Champagne Stakes on his agenda

Dream Today seems unlikely to run in the Solario Stakes at Sandown on Saturday.

The Mark Johnston-trained youngster is quoted at between 3-1 and 5-1 for the Group Three feature at the Esher track but seems more likely to head straight tio the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster next month.

Deidre Johnston, wife of the trainer, said: "He's absolutely fantastic. He only lost two kilos for that race.

"We have put in an entry on Saturday in the Group Three [Solario] but I think that's just a tentative one really. He is in the big sales race but I'd love to think we might head for the Champagne."

Nyaleti may attempt to redeem her reputation in the Shadwell Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket on September 29 after disappointing in the Prix Morny at Deauville.

She faded into sixth place behind Unfortunately in France, having previouisly been a convincing winner of the Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot.

"She looks great. I like to think there might have been one or two factors contributing to her not running so well that day and I think she'll bounce back," Johnston said on At The Races.

"She's fantastic and was strutting her stuff on Monday morning which was great to see. She'll possibly go for the Rockfel and put her back up to seven furlongs. Hopefully you'll see her back out there."

The original plan had been for Nyaleti to go for the Lowther Stakes, but Threading went in her place after being supplemented and duly obliged with victory in the Group Two at York last week and she has now earned a chance at Group One level.

"She is a very exciting filly for the future. Let's hope she goes for the Cheveley Park," she said.
