Bewitching Run In Bengough

Bewitched wins under Murtagh.

Bewitched wins under Murtagh.

Charles O'Brien reckons Bewitched might have the potential to become a top-level sprinter after her powerful finish earned her the Models 1 Bengough Stakes at Ascot.

O'Brien, son of the legendary Vincent, trains Bewitched for the his mother Jacqueline and the Magnier family and has campaigned her regularly but not asked too much and this was her biggest test so far.

Backed into 6-1, she was well off the pace with a couple of furlongs to run but Johnny Murtagh found a smart change of gear and she passed Genki and Secret Witness to finish three-quarters of a length clear.

"She didn't have Group One form but that's her fourth stakes race this year," said O'Brien.

"I would think that will be it for the season but she wouldn't have to find a lot of improvement on that form to make a Group One filly."
