September heads for Debutante
Impressive Royal Ascot winner September looks set to be seen next in the Debutante Stakes at the Curragh on August 20.
The Aidan O'Brien-trained filly, who is bred in the purple as a daughter of Deep Impact out of the multiple Group One winner Peeping Fawn, reeled in the front-running Nyaleti in the Chesham Stakes, building on a successful debut at Leopardstown last month.
Speaking after stablemate Happily, who was seventh at Leopardstown, had boosted the form at the Curragh on Friday evening, O'Brien said: "She is good. Seamus (Heffernan) rode her this morning and he was very happy with her so she'll have a little bit of an easy time.
"I think we might come back here for the Debutante and go on from there."
He added of 8-11 favourite Happily, who beat Shalailah by a length and three-quarters in the Westgrove Hotel Irish EBF Fillies Maiden: "She's a lovely filly with a good pedigree and will obviously stay further.
"She was trapped out a little bit by herself and was a little bit green in the middle part of the race. It was a help that she had the run, but she finished out her race very well which you like to see.
"She is still babyish, but you would have to love the way she finished off. She will slot into a Listed or Group race next time."
