Dank leaves Aloof trailing in her wake

Dank leaves Aloof trailing in her wake

Dank continued Sir Michael Stoute's fine season when lifting the Group Two Kilboy Estate Stakes at the Curragh.

The dual Group Three scorer had finished a close third to Duntle in the Duchess of Cambridge Stake at Royal Ascot and went two places better under a canny Ryan Moore ride.

Moore had the 5-4 favourite poised to challenge in the straight and got first run on the opposition as he forged past Aloof just two under two furlongs out.

The O'Brien-trained Say came from out of the pack but was a never-nearer length and three-quarters down at the line. Caponata was third.

Stoute's partner Coral Pritchard-Gordon said: "I spoke to Sir Michael on the phone and he's absolutely delighted. Ryan was thrilled with her and felt she was a better filly today. She is improving and loves the ground.

"All went right for her once she got the gap and she has a great temperament. If she continues to improve I presume she will be aimed at a Group One, but I'm not sure where."
