Shadwell Rockfel Stakes
|Group 2, Newmarket 15:00
2yo fillies only,
7f, Class 1
|Friday 29th September 2017|
Lightening Quick has been supplemented for the Shadwell Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.
By Frankel out of Cheveley Park winner Lightening Pearl, the Ger Lyons-trained filly made a winning debut on Irish Champions Weekend.
She is one of 15 possibles and could be joined on the trip from Ireland by Dermot Weld's Chiara Luna and Aidan O'Brien's Butterscotch, Ballet Shoes and September.
Nyaleti may attempt to redeem her reputation after disappointing in the Prix Morny at Deauville.
The Mark Johnston-trained filly had gone to France in search of Group One honours on the back of a convincing victory in the Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot, only to fade into sixth place behind Unfortunately.
"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's wife and assistant, Deirdre, told 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.
Jeremy Noseda's Take Me With You and Roger Charlton's Gavota are others of note.
