Saturday's G2 Prix du Calvados heroine Fev Rover (Ire) (Gutaifan {Ire}) emerged in good order following her Deauville triumph. The filly's is a potential starter in either the G1 Qatar Prix Marcel Boussac Criterium des Pouliches at ParisLongchamp on Arc Day, Oct. 4, or the Oct. 9 G1 Bet365 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket. Second in her first two starts, including the G2 Duchess fo Cambridge S. in July, the Nick Bradley Racing 43 and Partner flagbearer took the Listed Star S. on July 21 before her successful French foray.

“She'll have to go into a Group 1 now, either at Newmarket or back to France,” said Fahey. “She's a talented filly. Everyone said she's good on the soft, but I think she wants fast ground–it's just that she's very good. She's a great moving filly and I'm actually surprised she's running so well on the soft. She's improving and is just very smart. She's in the Boussac and we'll keep an eye on the Fillies' Mile as well.”

Fahey's Rhythm Master (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), third in the G1 Darley Prix Morny to Campanelle (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}), will be taking another crack at Group 1 level, the trainer revealed. Owned by John Dance of Laurens (Fr) (Siyouni {Ire}) fame, the bay won a maiden at Haydock in July, his only other start to date. He is under consideration for the Oct. 10 Darley Dewhurst S. at Newmarket.

“It was a huge ask going from a maiden to a Group 1 and he did show a little bit of inexperience,” said Fahey. “He half missed the start a beat and then had a think when he squared him up to get racing. I'm not saying I'd have beaten the winner, but I'd like to have been on her tail.

“Good horses go on any ground, but I would prefer to see him on better ground. He's got plenty of options, but I'd just like to see how he comes out of this one first–maybe something like the Dewhurst–we do like him, he's a smart horse.”
