Rizeena to run in Fillies' Mile
Rizeena is to go for a second Group One success in the Shadwell Fillies' Mile at Newmarket on Friday rather than the Connolly's Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes the following day.

The current warm dry spell has prompted trainer Clive Brittain to opt for the longer race for his Moyglare Stud Stakes winner.
"The Mile is the plan. The weather looks set fair for the week - we felt that if the ground was good, good to soft we would go for the Cheveley, but we are going to run her in the Mile as it's going to suit her a lot better," the Newmarket handler told At The Races.
"She will stay, that is not going to be a problem. She's in great form at the moment, touch wood, and has done all the work I want her to do for the race.
"It was a matter of which race we went for and I felt she'd have a big chance in either.
"She's put on 24 kilos since she had her first race. She is an exceptional filly and is thriving on what she's doing.
"One of the reasons we are going for the Mile is that this will be her 1000 Guineas trial.
"We will let her down a little bit and we will look after her during the winter. Like Sayyedati, Pebbles and all my good fillies she will have a quiet training regime through the winter and then we will gather up speed for the April/May meeting."
