    GBI Racing This Weekend: Newmarket Cambridgeshire Meeting, Curragh

    Saturday at Newmarket

    Wesley Ward has seen some good horses go through his hands in his time as a trainer, but the American believes Lady Aurelia to be a “once-in-a-lifetime filly” as she prepares to tackle the best of the British again in Saturday’s Group One Connolly’s Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes.

    Unbeaten and some would say unbeatable, Lady Aurelia returns to a British racecourse for the first time since her stunning Queen Mary victory at Royal Ascot in June
