CHEPSTOW'S opening 5f two-year-old fillies' maiden on Wednesday offers Tschierschen another opportunity to get her head in front for the first time at 2.20pm, having finished runner-up on both her previous starts for William Haggas.


Bred by Corduff Stud and T J Rooney out of the dual-winning juvenile and Listed runner-up Roo, a Rudimentary half-sister to Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes victor Bannister.

Tschierschen is bred to be precocious as she is a half-sister to seven winners, five of whom were successful as juveniles.

In addition, four of Roo's foals have collected black type with Gallagher a two-time runner-up in juvenile Group 2 contests, Quick Wit twice finishing second in Listed races, Roodeye who placed third in a Listed race at two, and the US stakes runner-up Averoo.

A daughter of Acclamation, Tschierschen carries the colours of the China Horse Club having been purchased for €280,000 at last year's Goffs Orby Yearling Sale.

The China Horse Club bought her year-older sister for 300,000gns at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale in 2014. Subsequently named Soteria, she was placed third on her two-year-old debut for Roger Varian.

Just over an hour later at 3.30pm, the course hosts a 7f maiden for older horses that sees the offspring of two former champion juveniles go head-to-head with New Approach represented by Curriculum and Dream Ahead by Sante.

Trained by William Haggas, the three-year-old gelding Curriculum has finished fourth on his two previous starts but has a pedigree full of classy performers.

Owned and bred by Lael Stables, he is out of the College Chapel mare Superstar Leo who was crowned champion European two-year-old filly in 2000 after victories in the Flying Childers and Norfolk Stakes.

He also shares his page with international Group/Grade 1 winners Curvy, Footstepsinthesand and Power.

Superstar Leo has produced seven winners including the speedy dual Group 3 victress Enticing and the Listed scorer Sentaril. Both were trained successfully by Haggas and the Newmarket handler also has Yaraki, Superstar Leo's two-year-old daughter by Frankel, to unleash from his yard.

Three-year-old filly Sante is dropping back two furlongs in trip having finished third on her most recent start over 1m1f for Charlie Hills.

Out of the triple Listed winner Zeiting, a Zieten half-sister to French Group 3 victress Dolled Up and the winning dam of 2,000 Guineas and Dewhurst Stakes runner-up Massaat.

Sante is a half-sister to eight winners including the German Group 2 hero Combat Zone, Group 3 scorer Royal Empire and two-time Listed scorer Scottish.

Offered by her breeder Knocktoran Stud at the 2014 Goffs Orby Yearling Sale, she races in the colours of Richard and Lizzie Kelvin-Hughes having being picked up by Anthony Stroud for €220,000.
