Believing takes Texanita triumph in style

The Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot is among the options under consideration for Believing after the filly struck Group Three gold in France on Friday.

George Boughey’s three-year-old twice filled the runner-up spot at Group Three level as a juvenile last season and kicked off the new campaign by finishing fifth in the Nell Gwyn at Newmarket.

Having raised her game to secure a Listed prize at Chelmsford a fortnight later, the Highclere-owned filly journeyed across the Channel for another tilt at Group Three honours in the Prix Texanita.

Ridden by Mickael Barzalona, Believing moved to the lead inside the final two furlongs and after kicking clear, she had enough in hand to see off Shalromy with something to spare.

Boughey said: “She’s an improving filly, it was great to make her a Listed winner at Chelmsford and she’s taken the step up to a Group Three in her stride under a nice ride from Mickael.

“I think she’s actually better suited when she gets into a battle and she had to do quite a lot of it on her own today. I think had the other horse come to her, she would have kept finding.

“She’s entered in a Group Two in France in a couple of weeks’ time and she’s in the Commonwealth Cup, so they’re nice decisions to have to make.”
