JAMES DOYLE Cached in a Guineas double to land his second British Classic the day after his very first.
Just 24 hours after he steered Coroebus to win the 2000 Guineas, he rode Cachet from pillar to post to hand George Boughey his first Classic in the 1000.
For Boughey, just 30 and in his third season training, it was a day to remember and a leap into the big time for the Newmarket young gun.
Most people Boughey’s age spend their Bank Holidays in the beer garden, Boughey’s was a bit different.
Cachet broke best under Doyle and led from the off. As the field entered the dip she still went well but the threats were looming.
Boughey watched on with a grimace as Ralph Beckett’s Prosperous Voyage motored through the final stages. Yet Cachet stuck on to the line and held on by just a neck and Boughey leapt into the air.
Doyle said: “It’s a complete blur and whirlwind at the minute!
“I’m not quite as emotional as on Saturday, but I really just got the chance to enjoy today.
“It’s very funny how things work out, this game is a hard one in that sometimes it can be so ruthless and it can be tough on you and other times when the cards fall in the right direction they fall in your favour as we’ve seen today.”
Boughey struggled to get the words out as he realised what Cachet had done but soon composed himself.

He said: “It’s just bizarre to win a Guineas, two years ago I was just dreaming of having a winner at Bath!
“It was a long final furlong! She got a peach of a ride from James and she just eyes up every blade of grass on the Rowley Mile, she loves it.
“I absolutely didn’t think I’d be here so soon, we had four horses two years ago and the highest rated was sixty two.
“So to have a filly like her and several others is amazing and to do it for Highclere is amazing.”
