"She's back on track. She was very good there and Shane [Foley] said she's only really learning to sprint now. She got rolling, enjoyed it and quickened up well. She had to carry a penalty against them there too. We'll probably go to the Curragh now for the Phoenix Sprint, another Group 3. It's just hard enough to find races for her. There are very few fillies races, that's the trouble, and she's probably not hardened enough to take on the elder sprinters yet. I think she will be in time as I think she's a proper sprinter. I'd love to look at a Group 1 towards the end of the season. She seems to go on any ground, it doesn't seem to worry her at all" - Jessica Harrington
RP ANALYSIS: A classy renewal of this Group 3 and class prevailed as well. The winner was in a different league to her rivals, some decent ones too. MILLISLE was a star last season, showing a smart turn of foot to land the Cheveley Park Stakes. She probably didn't get home over a mile in the 1,000 Guineas behind Love, and has taken time to warm to her task this season. This was much more like it as she powered up the hill to win going away. Her trainer is not keen to throw her straight into a Group 1 sprint but, when she does, it will be fascinating to find out how she will fare.

Next raceday Monday, 4th August
