Phoenix Ladies Syndicate’s star filly Forever In Dreams is likely to again take on Phoenix Thoroughbreds multiple Group One winner Advertise, this time in the Sprint Cup at Haydock Park.
Both horses are among the 26 entries at the latest acceptance stage that also includes July Cup winner Ten Sovereigns. PLS’s grey lady surpassed many expectations when she debuted in the orange and white silks of the multinational all-female syndicate when running second, to Advertise, in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.
A previous winner at Haydock having landed the listed Cecil Frail Stakes on a murky May afternoon, trainer Aidan Fogarty is hopeful the filly will show her liking for the Newton-Le-Willows track at the highest level.
“Forever In Dreams is in good nick, and the plan now is to go for the Sprint Cup.” Fogarty Confirmed. “Our original plan was to go for the Nunthorpe this week and, although she has pleased us in her work, we just didn’t have her ready in time.
“She came out of Ascot well, and we have taken our time since. She is a pleasure to have in the yard, and it was a brilliant run on her first start in G1 company.
“Six furlongs is clearly her trip, and I think she is better suited by some cut in the ground. She has won on fast ground, but some juice will help her as she is by Dream Ahead.
“She showed earlier in the season that Haydock suits her well and we are looking forward to heading back there.”
The Group One Sprint Cup takes place at Haydock Park on 7th September.
