Horse Racing - Racing: Cachet team consider French challenge

Cachet may bid to give George Boughey a remarkable second Classic of the month, with connections pondering the option of the French 1,000 Guineas.

The three-year-old daughter of Aclaim handed her 30-year-old trainer Boughey a first Group 1 win at Newmarket on Sunday when making all under James Doyle to win the 1,000 Guineas.

It also completed an outstanding weekend for rider Doyle, who just 24 hours earlier had won his first British Classic aboard the Charlie Appleby-trained Coroebus in the 2,000 Guineas.

Boughey on the up

Boughey's rise through the training ranks has been rapid since he sent out his first runner in 2019, with the Newmarket handler winning 85 races last year including his first Group races.

However, Sunday's 16/1 winner was a breakthrough moment for the trainer and Cachet could attempt a Classic double at Longchamp on 15th May, although Boughey also indicated the possibility connections could wait for the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot next month.

John Gosden and David Simcock are the only trainers based in Britain to win the French 1,000 Guineas this century.

Boughey said: "Cachet has been very straightforward since Sunday and we now have to work out whether we go to France or straight to Royal Ascot for the Coronation Stakes. We'll make the decision in the next four or five days I'd say.

"I think the French 1,000 Guineas will suit her, I didn't put her in the Irish version because the easier mile at Longchamp is probably more favourable to her."
