Signora Cabello bypasses Super Sprint in favour of French outing

Signora Cabello (white) prevails in a tight finish to the Queen Mary

John Quinn has decided to skip Saturday’s Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury with Signora Cabello and head to France instead.

The Queen Mary Stakes winner will now run in the Group Two Prix Robert Papin at Maisons-Laffitte on Sunday.

“We have declared her for the Prix Robert Papin on Sunday at Maisons-Laffitte,” Quinn told At The Races.

“The main reason is down the line after racing, she’s going to be bred from and she’s got a very nice pedigree.

“She’s already a Queen Mary winner and we just decided that this was the route – the Group route – that we’d follow with her, so that’s where we are.”

Signora Cabello is set to be joined on the trip across the Channel by the Karl Burke-trained True Mason.

The youngster opened his account at the third attempt at Nottingham last month and Burke feels his charge is ready for a step up in class.

“On paper it’s a big step up, but we feel he’s a very nice colt,” said the Leyburn-based trainer.

“If he gets there in the same sort of form he’s in now he’ll run a big race.”
