Alan Bailey believes his Rockfel and Cheveley Park Stakes runner-up Aspen Darlin will stay a mile next spring.
The daughter of Indian Haven progressed from a Group Three win at Ayr to make the frame in two high-profile races at Headquarters, and Bailey is targeting a return there next spring.
His juvenile chased home Serious Attitude at the track early in October before returning last Saturday and leading home the far-side group in the Rockfel.
Bailey said: “She was drawn on the wrong side last weekend, and I didn’t expect her to be in the first three when I saw she was drawn 17.
“She is a great little battler, and with the winner being on the other side she had nothing to race against.
“She has now run in three Group races in 30 days, winning one and finishing second in the other two.
“We’ll bring her back for a Classic trial next spring and I think she will get the mile.”
