Hooray set to head straight to Newmarket

Hooray will test the water in Group One company on her next start after her runaway victory in Saturday’s Sirenia Stakes at Kempton.

Hooray will test the water in Group One company on her next start after her runaway victory in Saturday’s Sirenia Stakes at Kempton.

Mark Prescott’s filly was a surprise winner of the Lowther Stakes at York on her penultimate outing but proved that to be no fluke at the weekend as she eased to Group Three success on the all-weather.

Prescott hinted in the immediate aftermath that the two-year-old could head for Prix d’Arenberg at Maisons-Laffitte on September 13, but she is now likely to be given a break for a tilt at next month’s Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket.

Chris Richardson, managing director for owners Cheveley Park Stud, said: “She’s improving all the time and is a very progressive filly.

“She’s thriving on her work and enjoying it and she was pretty impressive the other day.

“All being well she’ll go to the Cheveley Park Stakes next. I would say the race in France is highly unlikely.”
