Prestige plan for exciting Capla Temptress

Thu 27 Jul 2017

Capla Temptress could attempt to extend her unbeaten record to three in next month's Prestige Stakes at Goodwood.

Trainer Marco Botti is leaning towards making the seven-furlong Group Three, which he claimed back in 2006 with Sesmen, the next stopping point for the daughter of Lope De Vega.

After making a winning debut at Chelmsford, the two-year-old backed that up with a facile success in a novice event on her first start on turf at Newmarket on Saturday.

Botti said: "Capla Temptress won well at Newmarket and has obviously come on since her debut at Chelmsford.

"Beforehand I thought the soft ground would be fine as she is by Lope De Vega and I thought she would probably go through it.

"She is not the biggest, but she is very tough. The way she won on Saturday, she could improve again.

"I was thinking of the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood as hopefully she will step up into a black-type filly.

"There is the Sweet Solera, but I was thinking Goodwood as it just gives her a little bit more time. She is quite a well-balanced filly so she should handle Goodwood."
