Leopardstown May 12th
The lovely Dean Street Doll steps in to stakes company tomorrow for Leopardstown’s 1000 Guineas Trial. It’s a huge step up from winning a maiden 15 days ago but it fits in to have a look. It’s not a big field and while they will be undoubtedly hot to handle it’ll be interesting to see if she can. For her to win a maiden wasn’t a surprise but for her to do it so soon was. To me anyway. She has a lovely way of doing things but she pulls very hard in her work and her races and can feel a little weak late on in her exercise and I expected her to find less than she did. Colin liked her and advised this route. He’s riding like a man possessed at the moment and it’s nice to have him on our side tomorrow.
