Nyaleti bids for Morny glory

Nyaleti

Nyaleti gets the chance to bid for Group One honours in France on Sunday after a change of plan has seen the talented daughter of Arch being rerouted to the Darley Prix Morny at Deauville.

Trainer Mark Johnston originally named Thursday's Sky Bet Lowther Stakes at York as the next calling point for Nyaleti after she swept to a five-length success in the Group Three Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot last month.

However, Johnston has shuffled his pack with impressive Goodwood debut winner Threading now supplemented for the six-furlong Group Two on the Knavesmire.

"With Nyaleti, the plan was the Lowther, but we want to win a Group One and the Morny looked a possible," said the Middleham handler.

"It was well publicised last time that Ryan Moore said he thought she'd be better over seven furlongs and I wouldn't doubt his opinion at all, but she has got lots of speed and is clearly well capable at six, there's no doubts about that.

"She's a very big, strong filly, very straightforward at home and we don't really have to do much with her."
