Oisin Murphy says Alcohol Free can be a 1,000 Guineas contender after taking the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket.
Murphy rode the 7/2 shot to victory at HQ and was then asked about the possibility of the filly having a crack at the 1,000 Guineas next year.
The jockey was delighted with his afternoon's work and says the Andrew Balding-trained horse can enjoy future high-profile success.
"She's a super filly," said Murphy as quoted by the Racing Post. "She's a Group 1 winner now and certainly fits into the 1,000 Guineas category as she hits the line well and also relaxes.
"Andrew has done a top job with her because he's had to carefully manage her training regime. She's very generous at home and he's kept a lid on her.
"I don't win enough Group 1s for Andrew and he's supplied me with two this year. Hopefully we can continue to add to the tally."
The 5/2 favourite Miss Amulet was second in the Cheveley Park Stakes, with Umm Kulthum (9/1) third.
