Peter Chapple-Hyam is planning to send recent Newbury maiden winner Beau Nash for a crack at the Horris Hill Stakes on Saturday.
The Barathea colt enjoyed a spin on the Newmarket gallops this morning, showing himself in good heart ahead of the Newbury Group Three.
“If everything goes right between now and Saturday, Beau Nash will head for the Horris Hill Stakes and I hope he will run a big race. Alan Munro will ride him,” the trainer told www.peterchapplehyam.com.
“He could do with some rain as he prefers some ease in the ground. He seems in real good shape and worked nicely this morning over six and a half furlongs.”
Jeremy Noseda is also intending to have a runner in the contest in the shape of Araafa, who finished sixth in the Somerville Tattersall Stakes at the end of last month.
The son of Mull Of Kintyre, a Newmarket maiden winner, was prominent for much of that Group Three before just slipping out of the frame in the final 150 yards.
“I was satisfied with his last start, especially considering the stable was under a cloud at that point,” the Newmarket handler told www.jeremynoseda.com.
“He appears to be in good shape and I would hope for a sharper performance than last time.”
