The Irish 1,000 Guineas winner finished sixth behind Alice Springs in the Matron Stakes at the weekend on her first outing since occupying the same position in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, from which she returned home sick.

Trainer Adrian Keatley said: "We thought she ran well, she was actually the only one on the bridle two (furlongs) out.

"Our filly likes to be chased, but Christophe (Soumillon) was still sitting pretty two out.

"She needs softer ground to be seen at her best and it had dried to nearly good.

"She's not as scopey as some, especially at this time of year, and she was half-bullied by John Gosden's horse (Persuasive).

"It didn't work out for her but she was only run out of the prize-money in the last 100 yards.

"She's come out of it fine and we're hopeful that she might go to Newmarket on Dewhurst weekend as there's a seven-furlong race we could supplement her for.

"If she never won another race she owes us nothing."
