Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas Likely For Fev Rover

Fev Rover | Scoop Dyga

Group 2 winner Fev Rover (Ire) (Gutaifan {Ire}), who ran third in the G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on May 2, will likely make her next appearance in the G1 Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas on May 23. Runner-up in the G2 Duchess Of Cambridge S. at second asking in July, the Richard Fahey-trained bay took a listed at Sandown later that month, before winning Deauville's G2 Shadwell Prix du Calvados on Aug. 22. The Nick Bradley Racing silksbearer ended her season with a fourth in the G1 Qatar Prix Marcel Boussac-Criterium des Pouliches in heavy going on Oct. 4. The 1000 Guineas was her first run as a sophomore.

“Fev Rover will work tomorrow and we will then have a think of what to do,” said Nick Bradley, Managing Director of Nick Bradley Racing. “We will look at the entries and either go there or wait for Ascot. At the moment I would say she is likely to go to Ireland.

“It was a great run in the 1000 Guineas and I think the track at The Curragh would suit her more than the Rowley Mile. If you watch her races she generally makes most of her ground up running up hill and The Curragh is a stiffer track than the Rowley Mile.

“Looking at the field so far for Sunday I'd like to think she could be up in the first two or three again on a track that will suit.”
