Marsha given Irish aim

Marsha will head to the Curragh for her next outing when she takes in the Qatar Airways Sapphire Stakes on July 15.

Sir Mark Prescott's flying filly finished third in the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot behind Lady Aurelia and Profitable.

A Group One winner in France last season, travelling is no issue and Prescott would rather drop back down in grade than step up to six furlongs.

"She's come out of the race absolutely fine and will run in the Sapphire next at the Curragh on the 15th," said Prescott.

"Mathematically she actually ran her best ever race as she beat those that had finished behind her previously even further.

"Unfortunately one can conclude that the winner is very good and she was just a short-head behind last year's winner of Mr (Clive) Cox's.

"We've tried her over six furlongs before and it didn't work so we'll stick to five, which she's very good at."
