Stop The Cavalry (Lope De Vega) wins on debut at Haydock for Valmont and Ralph Beckett.
Purchased for 200,000gns from Book II of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales in 2022, it was great to see Stop The Cavalry her her maiden here in good style.
She could not have been more impressive here, bounding away from a strong looking field to win eased down by 2 3/4 length. She looks a filly with a promising future and after the race rider Hector Crouch said ”She did it very well. She travelled very strongly and conditions suited her. Ralph (Beckett) was confident beforehand and she knew her job. She’s bred to get further but she showed good speed and signs of potentially being a high-class filly”.
