Frankie Dettori is set to journey on David Lanigan’s Worth Waiting in Group 1, Pretty Polly. One of the greater new fillies in education, she struck inside the Dahlia Stakes on the go back and could bid for an excellent bigger prize the next evening. Lanigan said: “This race has been the plan for all year, and hopefully, they get a few decent floors. We’ve been delighted along with her coaching, and we’re searching ahead to it. “We were a bit suspect approximately her getting a mile and a 1/2 last year, and Ted Durcan, who has ridden her in all her work, has constantly said she’s a mile-and-a-region filly. She confirmed masses of the toe at Newmarket, and we have been pleased along with her since.”
Among her combatants are Wild Illusion, Pink Dogwood, and Iridessa. “It’s no longer going to be easy. Wild Illusion will enhance a lot from her first run of the 12 months; coming back to a mile and a quarter looks like it’ll fit Pink Dogwood, and Joseph O’Brien’s filly looks like she’ll respect stepping up. “Our filly doesn’t seem to have the equal jockey twice in a row, and however, if she gets a bit of success on the day, she ought to supply a good account of herself.” Wild Illusion’s teacher, Charlie Appleby, reckons she’s come on well and has a significant threat.
“I was pleased with her first run of the season and her first run against the Colts at Longchamp. She was coming lower back to 9 furlongs for that race as nicely, and that race has surely delivered her ahead. “Preparations for the Curragh have long gone nicely, and for me, she is returned to her best trip as a stiff 10 furlongs on the Curragh will undoubtedly shape her truly nicely.” He said: “Pink Dogwood is in desirable shape, and everything has long gone well because of Epsom along with her. I couldn’t be happier in the intervening time.
“We’re in no way thought she changed into sluggish. It became her first time over a mile and a 1/2 at Epsom, and they quickened very well, but she got caught near home. “Whether it became greenness or the trip, we’re no longer sure, but we’re very happy together with her. She normally travels well and might quicken.” Joseph O’Brien’s Iridessa might be stepping as much as the mile and 1 / 4 for the first time. “Iridessa is in exact shape at home. We assume the mile and a quarter will shape her well,” stated the teacher. “She ran nicely in both the English 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and once more in the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh, so with a bit of luck, the step-up in trip can bring about a touch more improvement in her.”
