Alice Springs bursts to Matron Stakes victory
Alice Springs eased to victory in the Group 1 Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes at Leopardstown.
A perfectly judged ride from Ryan Moore saw Aidan O'Brien's charge burst away to a three-and-a-quarter-length success over Persuasive.
Moore sat Alice Springs near the back as Creggs Pipes set the early pace. Jet Setting and Persuasive both made moves before Alice Springs turned on the boosters to power down the left and ease to victory.
Qemah, the 11-8 favourite, finished third under Gregory Benoist.
