Stuart Williams stays eager on a crack on the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes with Desert Dreamer after his star filly ran one more nice race in defeat at York.
A twin winner at Newmarket within the spring, the daughter of Oasis Dream has since completed second within the Listed Empress Stakes, the Group Two Duke of Cambridge Stakes and the Group Three Princess Margaret – overwhelmed only a nostril by Zain Claudette on the latter event.
Desert Dreamer once more needed to make do with minor honours in York’s Group Two Lowther Stakes, this time ending third behind the reopposing Zain Claudette and the previously-unbeaten Sandrine.
Champion jockey Oisin Murphy did properly to remain on board after Desert Dreamer’s saddle slipped deep inside the ultimate furlong, however Williams doesn’t consider it made any distinction to the ultimate consequence.
“Clearly the little incident in the direction of the tip of the race did not assist, however I believe third was one of the best we had been going to realize anyway,” mentioned the Newmarket handler.
“She’s come out of the race good and the plan could be to go to the Cheveley Park.
“She likes Newmarket and I believe a bit simpler floor may swimsuit her as properly. It was fairly fast at York.
“If it was correct good floor or simply on the mushy facet for the Cheveley Park, it’d give us a little bit likelihood of turning the tables.”
