Never Can Tell: Entered in the sales

Never Can Tell's connections have to decide whether to still send the filly to the sales after her win in the Betfred Cesarewitch at Newmarket on Saturday.

The daughter of Montjeu, owned by Dr Marwan Koukash and trained by Jamie Osborne, is in the Tattersalls Horses in Training Sales taking place in Newmarket from October 24-26.

The four-year-old increased her paddock value when winning the ultra-competitive two and quarter mile handicap under an inspired ride by Frankie Dettori.

Not A Bother

"She seems fine, not a bother on her," said Osborne.

"She was always a filly whose style was going to suit how Frankie likes to ride a horse and he executed it brilliantly.

"It was a great result all round and very nice to have a winner like that for Dr Koukash.

"It's probably unlikely she'll run again this year. She is entered in the Horses In Training Sales, so I'm got to sit down with the doctor and we'll decide what we are going to do. It's not impossible she could go there. I don't know."

Dr Koukash is a great supporter of Chester and the big staying handicap there in May is a race that springs to mind for 2012 if she is not sold.

"The Chester Cup is obviously one of the possibilities for her next year, but ultimately I won't be the decision maker there," Osborne added.
