September is already short in the betting for the 1,000 Guineas next year after her dominant debut win and her Chesham Stakes victory at Royal Ascot
SEPTEMBER could put her unbeaten record on the line in the Debutante Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.
Aidan O’Brien’s filly made a big impression on debut and backed that performance up when winning the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot.
She is already a best priced 11-2 shot for next year’s 1,000 Guineas and should take this step up in class in her stride.
O’Brien is responsible for six of the 11 entries with Happily, Actress, Ballet Shoes, Clemmie and Magical all still in contention.
? Templegate’s Treble ?
- NAP 7.25 Nottingham – Sitar: ‘Last month’s success has worked out really well and she’s looked a sprinter going places’ (add to your betslip)
- NEXT BEST 4.15 Ffos Las – Bianca Minola: ‘He had some decent form last year and the return to 1m4f should help’ (add to your betslip)
- TREBLE 5.00 Thirsk – Eyreborn: ‘Made a promising debut and she should be much sharper today’ (add to your betslip)
The Ballydoyle maestro said: “It is a big weekend at the Curragh and we are looking forward to it.
“There’s nothing written in stone just yet and we’ll have a look at things like the ground and how the horses work later in the week, but September and Happily would definitely be possible runners in the Debutante Stakes.”
Eminent made sure it was a good day for the British raiders at Deauville with a big win

Ger Lyon’s Black Sails, Jim Bolger’s Dawn Delivers, Brendan Duke’s Feisty Katerina, Willie McCreery’s Mary Tudor and Shekiba from Joe Murphy’s yard complete the field.
O’Brien is also responsible for eight of the 13 horses still in contention for Sunday’s Futurity Stakes.
The Ballydoyle handler has saddled 10 previous winners of the seven-furlong Group 2, with Giant’s Causeway (1999), Hawk Wing (2001), Gleneagles (2014) and this year’s dual 2,000 Guineas hero Churchill (2016) among those on the roll of honour.
This year’s squad includes dual course winner Fleet Review and Mendelssohn, who impressed on his second start at the track just a week ago.
O’Brien said: “All the horses we left in the Futurity Stakes are possibles at this stage and we’ll have a look at it later in the week.”
O’Brien’s team is completed by Berkeley Square, Bond Street, Coat Of Arms, Nelson, Rostropovich and Seahenge.
Camelback has won two of his three starts for Ger Lyons, while Michael O’Callaghan’s I Am Power could renew rivalries with Fleet Review.
Ken Condon’s Romanised, who was a little disappointing in last week’s Phoenix Stakes, dual Group 3 runner-up Theobald and Swiss Cottage are the other contenders.
