Mischief aims for Oyster honours
Jedd O'Keeffe's More Mischief is back in Ireland for a crack at the Ardilaun Hotel Oyster Stakes at Galway on Monday.
More Mischief : Runs at Galway Monday
Sixth in a Cork Group Three last time out, she has her sights slightly lowered for this mile-and-a-half Listed race, but O'Keeffe is fearful of two runners from Ireland's powerhouse stables.
"Last time she just went a bit quick too soon and the ground was lively enough for her," said the Middleham handler.
"She's so consistent, I'd love to win a Listed race with her. She's come so close, so I'm sure she's up to winning one.
"I'm a bit worried about the Dermot Weld horse (Almela, second in the race last year) and Jim Bolger's Glamorous Approach.
"They certainly set the standard, but I think we have a fighting chance.
"She's already got black type, but to get a bit more makes her that bit more valuable.
"We'll go and have a crack, anyway."
Aidan O'Brien runs How High The Moon, while John Oxx is represented by Avenante.
Morga, a good winner at the Curragh in August, is in the hunt for the Des McDonogh team, while fellow last-time-out scorers Shes An Art (James Barrett) and Soul Searcher (Johnny Murtagh) have also been declared.
