Johnston’s filly could only manage sixth in the Prix Morny but connections are confident she can get back to her best form after a short break
NYALETI could bid to get back to winning ways in the Shadwell Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket later next month.
Mark Johnston’s filly disappointed when finishing down the field in the Prix Morny at Deauville on her last start.
“She looks great. I like to think there might have been one or two factors contributing to her not running so well that day and I think she’ll bounce back,” Johnston’s wife and assistant, Deirdre, told At The Races.

- NAP 5.45 Carlisle – Magic Mark: ‘The return to this stiff five should be ideal and he looks nicely weighted’ (add to your betslip)
- NEXT BEST 3.10 Epsom – Highland Acclaim: ‘Should like the return to a venue where he’s won twice from three visits’ (add to your betslip)
- TREBLE 4.30 Ripon – Alexander M: ‘Bolted up by six lengths at Chester on Saturday’ (add to your betslip)
“She’s fantastic and was strutting her stuff on Monday morning which was great to see.
“She’ll possibly go for the Rockfel and put her back up to seven furlongs. Hopefully you’ll see her back out there.”

Nyaleti had been set to run in the Lowther Stakes, but Threading went in her place after being supplemented and duly obliged with victory in the Group 2 at York last week and now has Group 1 aims.
“She is a very exciting filly for the future. Let’s hope she goes for the Cheveley Park,” she said.
