NEMORALIA breezed through her final serious workout on Tuesday for the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot leaving trainer Jeremy Noseda eagerly awaiting next week’s Group 1.
Owned by Allan, Lovat and Pigram, Nemoralia was twice placed at Grade 1 level in the US last autumn and produced a performance oozing with class when landing a Listed contest at York on her return to action last month.
Nemoralia is pressing Ballydoyle for favouritism in the Coronation Stakes and Noseda feels his filly will be heading to Royal Ascot at the top of her game.
Writing on his website, Noseda said: “Nemoralia did her last serious piece of work ahead of Royal Ascot [on Tuesday]. Frankie Dettori rode her on the Limekilns [gallop in Newmarket] and he couldn’t have been happier with her.
“She is in great shape. Touch wood, everything is going to plan.”
US mission for Sloane Avenue
Before Nemoralia lines up at Ascot, Sloane Avenue is set to represent Noseda and owners Paul and Sue Roy in the Grade 1 Met Mile at Belmont on Saturday.
“This is a big ask but the horse is in great order,” the trainer added. “I feel that we’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain by running. I just hope that it will be a real strongly-run race – and it should be.”
