Richard Fahey is looking forward to trying Umm Kulthum in a Classic trial next spring after drawing stumps on her juvenile campaign.

The North Yorkshire handler is optimistic the daughter of Kodiac will stay a mile next term and is hoping she can develop into a contender for the 1000 Guineas.

Umm Kulthum goes into winter quarters as a leading juvenile filly, having ended with a close third in the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes just a week after winning the Group Three Firth Of Clyde Stakes at Ayr.

“She came out of Newmarket well and we were delighted with her run. She’s tough,” said Fahey.

“She won’t run again this season. She’s gone on her holidays.

“She’ll probably head for one of the trials and (we’ll) stick her in the Guineas and see what she does. Her pedigree says she’ll stay.”
