Words is set for an immediate step up in class after she made an impressive racecourse debut at the Curragh.

Ballydoyle's young daughter of Dansili was sent off a 3-1 chance in a seven-furlong fillies' maiden but did enough to earn quotes for the Oaks at Epsom and the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket next season.

Joseph O'Brien's companion made a lackadaisical start, but she slowly moved through the gears and took the lead one furlong from home.

In the end she was good value for her one-length defeat of fellow newcomer Raydara.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien said: "She's a nice filly and we're very happy with her. The mammy (Moonstone) was good.

"She came from a nice bit back and you'd have to be delighted with the run.

"We'll probably look for a Listed or Group race now - probably the Debutante Stakes (Curragh, August 24)."
