Churchill's sister Clemmie wins the Cherry Hinton

The Aidan O'Brien-trained Clemmie (Galileo), a full-sister to dual 2000 Guineas winner Churchill, won the Group Two Duchess of Cambridge Stakes - the Cherry Hinton Stakes - at Newmarket on Friday, quickening smartly under Ryan Moore to beat Nyaleti by a length and three-quarters.

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.

"I'd say she 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.

"She's got every chance."

Part-owner Michael Tabor said: "You have to be impressed. Obviously she's improving all the time and she wants six furlongs, but more would suit her.

"We were all hopeful she'd go to the top on her breeding. As we know she's a full-sister to Churchill.

"We can't ask for better than that and she's one to look forward to.

"She's won as if she wants seven furlongs and hopefully she'll be a Guineas horse for next year."
