Roger Varian expects Cabaletta to appreciate the pace of up to a mile and a half on his first start in group racing in the Lancashire Oaks at bet365 in Haydock on Sunday.
The master craftsman’s daughter seemed to have adapted further when she worked late to second in Franconia in the Abingdon Fillies Stakes in Newbury on her seasonal debut.
“Cabaletta has come out of Newbury well and we’ve been happy with her ever since,” said Varian.
“It was a good first round on his move to the listed company. He is facing older fillies for the first time, but hopefully there is more to come.
“The two extra furlong will go really well, since her mother Allegretto was a great home and should have gone even more on time.
“The ground will be fine for her too, as she won on heavy ground in Yarmouth in her debut.
“Hopefully later we can look at races like Lillie Langtry in Goodwood and Park Hill in Doncaster.”
Cabaletta is the only three-year-old boy among the six runners in a race who has lost some luster due to Dame Malliot’s retirement due to the soft ground.
Coach Ralph Beckett is doubly represented with Antonia De Vega and Manuela De Vega. Both made successful reappearances, with the latter lowering the colors of the next Hardwicke Stakes scorer Fanny Logan in Group Three Pinnacle Stakes on this path and distance four weeks ago.
David O’Meara’s Makawee and Spirit Of Appin, trained by Brian Meehan, complete the field.
