Aidan O’Brien’s Meditate took the step as much as six furlongs in her stride as she adopted up her spectacular Curragh victory on debut to scoop Group Three honours within the Coolmore Stud Irish EBF Fillies Dash Stakes at Naas.
The daughter of No Nay By no means gained by simply over three lengths in her first begin and though the profitable margin was not as imperious this time, there was little question about who the winner could be as soon as the €360,000 purchase took over from long-time chief Matilda Picotte inside the ultimate furlong.
Kieran Cotter’s sport Curragh scorer light within the closing phases as Comhra (7-2) and It is Showtime Child (11-1) stayed on into the locations, but it surely was solely the 2-1 joint-favourite’s efficiency that mattered, with the teen reserving her ticket to the Albany at Royal Ascot.
“I am delighted with her. She’s very laid again at residence so she’s a tough filly to get a learn on,” stated O’Brien.
“Clearly she gained very properly on the Curragh and stepped up in distance there, Wayne (Lordan) was delighted with her at this time. She’s pretty and we’re very pleased with her.
“The Sioux Nation filly went a superb gallop, she was good on the Curragh and we thought she was going to be an enormous hazard. We have been delighted that she was capable of choose her up, we weren’t certain that will occur and 6 furlongs clearly suited her.
“We have been hoping to return right here and if every part went nicely then take a look on the Albany with her. We predict that is what we’ll do, clearly we’ll discuss to the lads however I feel that is the route she’ll be going.”
