Experience given Newmarket option

David Wachman is considering running his promising filly Experience in the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket next week.

Beaten a short-head on her debut by Jim Bolger's Somasach, she turned that form around on her most recent outing.

Having won her maiden at Navan, the Excellent Art filly won the Group Three Grangecon Stud Stakes at The Curragh in some style.

"She's got loads of options," said Wachman.

"She had three runs in quite quick succession so we might just ease off.

"But she's in the Cherry Hinton and we'll have a look at it although I'm not 100 per cent whether we'll go there.

"There's plenty of races for her, she certainly isn't short of Group races to run in, she's quite a nice filly."

Meanwhile, Strong Suit attempts to provide Richard Hannon and Richard Hughes with a second successive win in today's Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly.

Successful 12 months ago with Dick Turpin, Hannon again has high hopes of securing further Group One honours in France after Strong Suit bounced back to his best at Royal Ascot.

"Dick Turpin finally nailed his Group One in this race last year, and, hopefully, Strong Suit can do likewise today," trainer Richard Hannon said.

Elsewhere, Henry Cecil's multiple Group One winner Twice Over will attempt to redeem his reputation in the Sky Bet York Stakes on July 23, the Newmarket trainer has confirmed.

The dual Champion Stakes hero won at the Dubai Carnival in early March but has since flopped in the World Cup, the Lockinge and most recently the Prince Of Wales' Stakes at Royal Ascot.
