George Boughey’s Cachet, who was placed in both the Rockfel Stakes and Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket as a two-year-old, ran out a convincing winner of the renowned 1000 Guineas trial, drawing two-and-a-half-lengths clear of the second Almohandesah, with Hello You back in third. 

Despite racing somewhat on her own towards the stands side of the Rowley Mile, the Highclere-owned filly – completing a treble for William Buick – was always up with the pace and bounded to the front as the field hit the two-furlong pole. 

Once she took the lead there was no passing and it is now all systems go for the Qipco-sponsored 1000 Guineas back at Newmarket on May 1. Online betting firms were somewhat impressed and Cachet was cut to 20-1 by QuinnBet.

Boughey said: “I kept saying at the backend of last year that she was slightly weak and she did incredibly well over the winter. She went to the National Stud and had a proper break.

“She came back from Del Mar (close fourth in Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf) and had 10 days on the walker and didn’t miss a day from then until now, which is a huge attribute for her.

“We’ve been able to get the work in when we’ve wanted and while she was fit today, she will step forward again.

Trainers Quotes

“She’s obviously a high-class filly and we’ll come back here for the Guineas and give it a good go.

“The mile is the question mark, but she loves the track here which is a huge string to her bow.

“She’ll be giving us a good shout a furlong out, I hope.”

He added: “It’s massive to win a race like this. It’s our third full year, we had four horses a couple of years ago and to have a horse owned by Highclere winning a Classic trial is everything really.

“We won the Pretty Polly last year with Mystery Angel and she went on to be our first Classic runner in the Oaks and finished second.

“All systems go for the Guineas with this filly.”
