Ryan Moore rides Clemmie to victory in Duchess of Cambridge Stakes
Clemmie, a full-sister to this year's dual 2000 Guineas hero Churchill, claimed top honours in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes.
Aidan O'Brien's filly was a shade disappointing in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot, but bounced back to win a Group Three at the Curragh less than a fortnight ago.
Stepped up to Group Two level, she was the 11-8 favourite under Ryan Moore and travelled well in behind main market rival Nyaleti for much of the six-furlong contest.
Moore asked his mount to take closer order racing inside the final two furlongs and Clemmie quickened up smartly to hit the front and she galloped all the way to the line to score decisively by a length and three-quarters.
Nyaleti, runner-up in the Chesham Stakes at the Royal meeting, boxed on for second ahead of Mamba Noire in third.
Moore said: "She's just progressed with every run, which is typical of one of Aidan's two-year-olds. She's just got better and better.
"She was good in the Group Three the last day and was better today. I thought she did that very easily."
BetVictor cut Clemmie to 8-1 for next year's 1000 Guineas, with her stablemate September the 5-1 favourite.
Moore added: "I'd say she (Clemmie) is the best (two-year-old) filly we've seen out this year. She's won a six-furlong Group Two in July, she's got the pedigree to do it and she's got the trainer.
