Feasa flies home in Trial

Bean Feasa ridden by Kevin Manning wins the Derrinstown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown

Bean Feasa eventually wore down the front-running Asking to claim top honours in the Derrinstown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown.

The Jim Bolger-trained Bean Feasa was the 100/30 favourite shot to open her account at the sixth attempt in this Group Three contest.

Asking gave a bold sight in front under Ana O'Brien and briefly looked to have her rivals on the stretch early in the straight.

However, her stride began to shorten racing inside the final furlong and Bean Feasa was ultimately well on top as she passed the post two and three-quarter lengths ahead in the hands of Kevin Manning.

Bolger said: "She relished the faster ground and obviously that opens up new opportunities for her. Hopefully she will progress now from here.

"She can step up in trip later on and is going to be versatile. She doesn't want soft ground but I'd say she will be alright after that.

"We were happy enough going to Gowran last week but there was a downpour at 12 o'clock on Sunday and that scuppered her chance.

"She still ran well and recovered well afterwards. She's hardy.

"We'll have to see about the (Irish) Guineas but I wouldn't rule it out."
