Morning dominates at Yarmouth
Irish challenger Beautiful Morning proved a class above her rivals as she sauntered to a facile success in the EBF Stallions John Musker Fillies' Stakes at Yarmouth.
Having finished second in a Group Two at the Curragh on her previous start for Jessica Harrington, the daughter of Galileo made the most of drop down to Listed level in the mile and a quarter prize.
Kept handy throughout by Colm O'Donoghue, the 9-4 favourite quickened away smartly once sent on inside the final quarter of a mile to cross the line with two and a half lengths to spare.
Vintage Folly was a clear second.
O'Donoghue said: "It's a good training performance by Mrs Harrington, to be fair. She pointed out little niggly problems early on in the season and worked on them. She has done a great job.
"Physically every day I get on her she is a stronger filly. She travelled extremely well and she moved great and she deserved that.
"I am starting to think she wants the ease in the ground and that's what she came here for. She is a beautiful moving filly and she's done it well."
Harrington was at Fairyhouse, where she also enjoyed Listed success with Brick By Brick (5-1) in the Ballyhane Blenheim Stakes.
Of Beautiful Morning, the trainer said: "I was absolutely delighted with her. I sent her over there to get black type because she'd been second in the Group Two last time.
"She did it very easily. It's very important as she's got big black type now. She's been second in a Group Two and been placed in a Listed races as a three-year-old last year.
"She's really come into herself this autumn and she stays in training next year.
"I don't know where she goes next but she may go abroad."
