Devonshire added to Guineas field

first_img “The owners have been very sporting,” said McCreery. “She seems in good form and the conditions won’t bother her. “I don’t particularly think she needs soft ground ground to be seen at her best, but she seems to handle it a lot better than others. “It could be very tacky by the weekend and we know she goes through it. “We don’t know that much about her sire as yet, but I’ve a few and they seem like milers to me. “She was staying on strongly the other day, though, and later in the season she might get a bit further than that. “We’ll see how she gets on this weekend and then take it from there.” David Wachman’s Legatissimo and Jim Bolger’s Lucida, first and second in the Guineas at Newmarket, were among the fillies taken out at the forfeit stage. Press Association The Fast Company filly has been second on both of her outings in Group Three company this season and, in an open year, connections felt it was worth taking the plunge. Having chased home Dermot Weld’s Stormfly over seven furlongs in April, she turned that form around but was beaten by Kissed By Angels a month later. A total of 21 fillies are still in contention, including Aidan O’Brien’s Kissed By Angels. O’Brien could also run Found, Outstanding, Qualify and Wedding Vow. Jessica Harrington has two strong candidates in Jack Naylor and Bocca Baciata while Jim Bolger has left in Pleascach, Mainicin and Steip Amach. Mick Channon’s Malabar ran well to finish fourth at Newmarket while Mick Halford’s Raydara was one of the best juveniles last season. Dermot Weld has a couple of interesting contenders in Joailliere and Stormfly. James Given’s pair of Pastoral Girl and Russian Punch and the Clive Brittain-trained Teosroyal are others still engaged. Willie McCreery feels Devonshire deserves her place in the line up after she was supplemented by Godolphin for Sunday’s Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh.last_img read more
