Final Declarations Made For Sunday's Pouliches and Poulains



Highclere Thoroughbred Racing's G1 1000 Guineas heroine Cachet (Ire) (Aclaim {Ire}) will face 14 rivals in Sunday's €500,000 G1 Emirates Poule d'Essai des Pouliches at ParisLongchamp. The George Boughey trainee will depart from stall 10 in her bid to become the first filly since Special Duty (GB) (Hennessy) in 2010, and fifth overall, to complete the 1000 Guineas-Pouliches double. Should she prevail, the TDN Rising Star will join an exclusive club which also includes Imprudence (1947), Miesque (1987) and Ravinella (1988). Her main rivals in the ante-post betting lists, G3 Prix des Reservoirs and G3 Prix de la Grotte victrix Rosacea (Ire) (Soldier Hollow {GB}) and impressive Cork maiden winner Toy (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), have drawn slots one and five, respectively.

One race later on the stakes-laden card, in the €600,000 G1 Emirates Poule d'Essai des Poulains, 16 have been declared and Godolphin's GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf hero Modern Games (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) will seek to provide Charlie Appleby with a breakthrough in the contest. He has drawn box four. Alongside in three is Jean-Claude Rouget trainee and TDN Rising Star Lassaut (Fr) (Almanzor {Fr}), six across from his G3 Prix de Fontainebleau-winning stablemate Welwal (GB) (Shalaa {Ire}) in nine.
