Fadhayyil doubt for Qipco Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket

Fadhayyil could sidestep her engagement in the Qipco Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket on Friday in favour of an easier opportunity elsewhere.

Runner-up to Lucida in last season's Rockfel Stakes, the Barry Hills-trained filly was an excellent fifth in the 1000 Guineas on her three-year-old debut before being touched off by Dutch Connection in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot.

She could potentially go in against her elders for the first time in the feature event on day two of the July Festival, but connections are considering alternative opportunities.

Angus Gold, racing manager for owner Hamdan Al Maktoum, said: "We're just going to make a final decision in the morning on her.

"It looks like quite a hot contest on paper and while she's finished second in a Group Two and second in a Group Three, she hasn't yet won a Pattern race.

"That is obviously the priority so we'll just have a chat about it and see what alternatives there are."
