Progeny of The National Stud's freshman sire Aclaim (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) had yet to post a breakthrough score, but that statistic was cast aside as Highclere Thoroughbred Racing's Cachet (Ire) powered to a taking debut success over six furlongs in Saturday's Betway British EBF Fillies' Novice S. at Newmarket. Breaking sharply to occupy a forward slot in second through the initial fractions, the 4-1 chance cruised to the front hard on the steel approaching the final quarter mile and powered ever clear, under minimal urging, up the hill to easily outclass Godolphin's Before Dawn (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) by an impressive 5 1/2 lengths.

"She is a lovely, big, scopey filly and her work has been good," said trainer George Boughey. "She has been working away with other winners and older horses that have been running well. This doesn't come as huge surprise as she is a filly that is quite near the top of the pile at the moment. We will speak to Harry [Herbert], but she looks like the type of filly for the [June 18 G3] Albany [at Royal Ascot]. She came from the Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up sale and if she wins at Royal Ascot there is a ?125,000 bonus. She has got a very good mind and we have done plenty of work with her, but we've only had her a few weeks."

Cachet, a first winner for Aclaim (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}), also becomes the first winner for her dam Poyle Sophie (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}), herself a half-sister to the dam of GIII San Francisco Mile victor Whisper Not (GB) (Poet's Voice {GB}). Her third dam Poyle Fizz (GB) (Damister) is responsible for G2 Lowther S. victrix Jemima (GB) (Owington {GB}), who in turn is the dam of three stakes performers headed by multiple stakes scorer English Colony (GB) (Rock of Gibraltar {Ire}). From a family featuring G2 Haydock Sprint Cup-winning sire Runnett (GB) (Mummy's Pet {GB}), Cachet is half to a yearling filly by Kuroshio (Aus).
