Lily Fire: On target at the Curragh

Lily Fire: On target at the Curragh

David Wachman's Fire Lily led home Aidan O'Brien's After in the Jebel Ali Stables & Racecourse Anglesey Stakes at the Curragh.

The daughter of Dansili was sent off favourite for the Group Three contest and was one of four runners in with a chance with two furlongs to run.

However she found the best turn of foot under Wayne Lordan to record a ready 11-4 success.

Wachman said: "She has always shown that she is pretty smart. She ran well in the Queen Mary last time out. She was outpaced there in the middle of the race before flying home at the finish.

"The step up in trip was no harm to her and she is versatile ground wise as she doesn't mind fast or slow.

"She holds entries in all the big two-year-old races and she will go for one of them next."

Despite being squeezed for room with a furlong left to run O'Brien's filly After stayed on all the way to the line to hold stablemate Boris Grigoriev for second spot.

Mark Johnston's British raider Fulbright was well-beaten further back under Franke Dettori, whilst Jim Bolger's Zip Top was another to run well below par.

Fire Lily was quoted at 33-1 with Ladbrokes and Boylesports for the Qipco 1000 Guineas.
