Trainer Charlie Fellowes is keeping close tabs on the weather at Newmarket after parting with £20,000 to supplement Eve Lodge for Saturday's Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes.

The two-year-old returned to winning ways when last seen on September 4, beating Wings Of War by a length in the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Sirenia Stakes at Kempton.

That was Eve Lodge's second career victory following a triumph at Lingfield in May when coming home one-and-a-half lengths clear of Sophie's Star.

This month's triumph at Kempton was made to look even more impressive due to the fact that runner-up Wings Of War and third-placed Hierarchy finished first and second, respectively, in the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury.

Group One glory could be next on the agenda for the Ardad filly after she was supplemented to the tune of £20,000 for Saturday's Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes.

But Fellowes has conceded his charge is unlikely to take up entry if conditions do not suit and the ground is on the fast side.

He said: "The owners have been brilliant — they've put no pressure on her running but have said we'll see what happens with the weather through the week and go from there.

"I was a bit worried about what she beat at Kempton, but it turns out I need not have been — with them being first and second in the Mill Reef.

"You don't get to run in Cheveley Parks very often. She's a very good filly; we've always felt that, so providing the ground isn't too quick, I see no reason why we won't take our chance.

"The rain on Sunday helped, and there is the possibility of showers later in the week."

Saturday's contest is shaping up nicely with plenty of healthy competition after George Boughey also supplemented Corazon.

Corazon was a Group Three winner in France, edging out Dizzy Bizu by a neck in the Prix d'Arenberg at Longchamp earlier this month.

Boughey also has further interest in the six-furlong heat with Thunder Love, who won back-to-back races at Kempton to kick off her career in the mix.

Ger Lyons' Sacred Bridge is expected to mount a serious challenge after winning each of her four starts to date, including the Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh when last seen.

Meanwhile, Zain Claudette boasts three wins from her last four, including the Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot and the Lowther at York.

Trainer Ismail Mohammed said: "She's in very good form — we worked her on Monday on the all-weather and she is flying.

"She's in good nick up to now — we'll work her on grass on Wednesday too. She's changed a lot since the Group Two and she's doing very, very well.

"You will 100 per cent see her in the Cheveley Park next."
