Lily's Angel: In great form ahead of Dundalk contest

Lily's Angel bids to make it three out of three since joining the Ger Lyons stable in the Cooley Fillies Stakes at Dundalk on Friday.

The former Richard Fahey-trained three-year-old has won both her starts for the County Meath handler, including over course and distance last time.

She accounted for Devotion, Aaraas and New Magic on that occasion and those three are among a field of 14 for this Listed contest over a mile.

"She's a nice filly to have and looks to have a top chance in the race. She's probably the top filly in there," said Lyons.

"She's got a fair draw (five) and you'd have to think on her last two performances that she'd have a big chance.

"It's been a long year, but she'd be as fresh as any and I'd expect her to run well, with a bit of luck."

Marco Botti admits Colorful Notion has to put in a career-best performance to be in the shake-up.

"She's been working well and she handles the all-weather better than she does the grass," said the Newmarket trainer.

"Last time it was a good performance to finish second and she ran a good race.

"She should get a mile on the all-weather but that's as far as she'll go.

"On the ratings she needs to find a bit of improvement to be in the frame, but at this time of year some fillies go a little bit flat.

"She seems at her best right now so I'm hoping we have kept her fresh.

"She hasn't run that many times so we are hoping to get some black type."
