6:15pm Galway Ardilaun Hotel Oyster Stakes (Listed Race) 1m4f
Camphor ran a cracker in-behind Mr Adjudicator in a handicap over course-and-distance during the Festival here at Galway during the summer and wasn’t disgraced in Listed company last time out. Jessica Harrington’s filly should appreciate the step back up in trip and looks the main danger to the market leader. Having said that, Aidan O’Brien’s horses are flying at the moment, having won six of the eleven pattern races during Irish Champions Weekend and SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL (NAP) is very hard to oppose.
Simply Beautiful has been tried over a variety of trips this term. The Galileo filly’s solitary victory may have come over a mile, but her best performance was undoubtedly in the Give Thanks Stakes over this trip, where Donnacha O’Brien’s mount stayed on gamely to claim second. Tarnawa upset the favourite that day, but she proved that win was no fluke at the weekend, scoring in the Group Two Blandford Stakes at the Curragh.
O’Brien’s filly could only finish fifth last time out, as her stablemates finished first and second in the Snow Fairy Fillies Stakes. However, that was over an inferior trip and Simply Beautiful stayed 12 furlong really well, on soft ground behind Tarnawa. Drawn in stall one, Donnacha should be able to comfortably slot in behind likely pace-setter Warnaq and Simply Beautiful likes to race prominently, a trait which is important at Galway, as hold-up horses often find it difficult to make up the ground around the tight turns.
Four Ballydoyle fillies and mares claimed pattern-race victories over the weekend, Simply Beautiful could follow in their footsteps at Galway.
