Fire Lily: Will go up in grade

Fire Lily is to try her hand at a higher level after landing a Group Three in great style at the Curragh on Sunday.

The Dansili filly has a host of classy entries including the Keeneland Debutante Stakes and the Moyglare Stud Stakes, both back at the County Kildare track next month.

Her trainer David Wachman is ruling nothing out at this stage following her emphatic success in the Anglesey Stakes.

"She's come out of it fine. She won it pretty easily and didn't have a hard race," he said.

"She's in all the good fillies' races. She's won a Group three now and she'll be stepping up again in grade."

Wachman is also considering bringing over Mount Athos for the Artemis Goodwood Cup next Thursday.

The four-year-old, owned by Dr Marwan Koukash, could relish the two-mile trip after finishing well to be fourth to Halicarnassus in the Old Newton Cup at Haydock.

"We're thinking of going to the Goodwood Cup with him next week," Wachman continued.

"He ran a solid race at Haydock and was doing his best work at the end."
