Fellowes hopes Moonlit can shine
Views from connections ahead of the Listed Blenheim Stakes at Fairyhouse on Tuesday.
Aidan O'Brien: Runs a couple in the Blenheim Stakes
Newmarket handler Charlie Fellowes sends Moonlit Show across the Irish Sea in pursuit of Listed honours at Fairyhouse on Tuesday.
The young daughter of Showcasing won a Haydock fillies' maiden by a neck at the beginning of the month and now steps up in class for the Blenheim Stakes over six furlongs.
Fellowes said: "We want cut in the ground, which we will definitely get.
"I was a bit worried taking on the colts, but the owners were keen to send her to Ireland for some black type.
"She ran really well on inadequate ground on her debut (third at Windsor) and then disappointed at Wolverhampton, when I rushed her back as she had been under the weather.
"The ground was also a bit quick for her at Haydock, but she won well and can hopefully improve for that.
"She's a nice filly. I like her."
Aidan O'Brien saddles Curragh handicap winner Istan and Leo Minor, who disappointed in a Group Three at the same track in August.
Ger Lyons is also double-handed with Brooklyn's Rose and Mack Attack.
Born To Be, a son of Sea The Stars, nicely won a Cork maiden, in which Mack Attack was second, and has been declared by John Oxx.
Giselle's Charm completes the line-up for Michael O'Callaghan.
