Quick Suzy aiming for Cheveley Park Stakes ahead of Breeders' Cup

Gavin Cromwell’s Quick Suzy is likely to head to the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket on September 25, providing the ground is suitable.

This will see the winner of the Queen Mary race against fillies once again, following her ninth-place finish against the colts in the Prix Morny at Deauville on Sunday.

She had accounted for herself quite well, but faded towards the end, finishing over four lengths behind the winner Perfect Power.

Her main aim has always been the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint and while connections would prefer to get a run in before then, should the ground be soft at Newmarket then she is likely to head straight there.

Spokesperson for her American owners Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Joe Burke, said: "I'd walked the track Sunday morning and I was very happy with the ground, it was good to firm on the straight track.

"Unfortunately there was a real downpour before racing and Gary (Carroll) said it chewed up the path along the rail we were going to take. Also, while she travelled great, when he asked her to pick up she couldn't and he described it as speed-blunting ground.

"He said we'll see a different filly back on faster ground so we'll regroup this week, but the plan had always been the Cheveley Park and we'll probably still go there but only if the ground is good or better. On good to soft, even back in against fillies, we'd probably get the same kind of result.

"She's at her best on fast ground when she can show that turn of foot she showed at Ascot.

"Her main aim all along has been the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint where she's guaranteed to get fast ground at Del Mar. That race is made for her."
