Torgau out to make a case for Guineas.
Torgau is arguably the form selection in this afternoon's Group 1 feature - one of four races from Newmarket shown live on Channel 4 - having won the Cherry Hinton Stakes here in July, before chasing home Preseli in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at The Curragh earlier this month.
After that run, the daughter of Zieten was sold to race in the United States at the end of this year, and Bravery has already made an entry for the youngster in the Miesque Stakes at Hollywood Park at the end of November.
However, the trainer said yesterday: "Obviously, if she won the Cheveley Park there would be reason to sit down and have a chat about her future.
"Her new owners might let me train her for the Guineas and take her off to America after that. But we'll just have to see, as they might equally already have a plan mapped out for her."
Torgau has improved all season, and Bravery added: "It's amazing when you think she was running at places like Catterick earlier in the year. She has given us some great moments.
"I could not have her in better order and she's the one they all have to beat."
Michael Hills, who rode the filly in Ireland, partners her again this afternoon.
He said: "I tried to restrain her in Ireland to get the seven furlongs and she lost her action a bit early on.
"I'll let her use her stride this time and I think six furlongs is definitely her best trip. I'd be worried about very heavy ground, but it looks like being no worse than good to soft, and she has handled that well in her work."
