Sander Camillo looks solid for Cheveley Park


Sander Camillo, the favorite for next year's 1000 Guineas, looks to have excellent claims in Friday's Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket, England. Emphatic winner in July of the Group 2 Cherry Hinton at Friday's six-furlong distance, she looks to have the talent to justify the hype surrounding her, and her trainer, Jeremy Noseda, continues in superb form.

The expected good to soft ground could be slight concern for Sander Camillo, a Dixie Union filly, but as long as it does not become too testing, she should not be unduly troubled.

Indian Ink should give her a challenge, and is one filly who would like plenty of rain. She is in good form, as evidenced by her impressive win in a valuable sales race last week.

Two horses also come over from France, Group 3 winner Beauty Is Truth and Magic America, runner-up to Dutch Art in the Group 1 Prix Morny. Both have to be respected, especially Magic America, whose trainer, Criquette Head-Maarek, has an excellent record in the race.

* The six-furlong Middle Park for colts will also be run Friday, and it has attracted a field of six with Dutch Art the probable favorite. Dutch Art, a Medicean colt trained by the Peter Chapple-Hyam, is bidding for his second Group 1, following his win in the Prix Morny at Deauville.

Hellvelyn, winner of the Coventry Stakes before an excellent second place to Holy Roman Emperor in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes, commands respect.

Wi Dud and Conquest, both Group 2 winners at York this season, also give the race depth.
