Words shines on Curragh bow

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)."
