Somehow far too good at Curragh

Somehow drew away from the opposition in the final furlong to comfortably land the spoils in the Snow Fairy Stakes at the Curragh.

Somehow was an easy winner of the Snow Fairy Stakes

Seamie Heffernan brought Somehow (5-2) with a sweeping run on the outside to grab the lead and quickly bound clear.

Duchess Andorra and Planchart set the pace and there were plenty in with chances before the Aidan O'Brien-trained Somehow sealed victory in a few strides.

There were seven lengths back to Mick Channon's Epsom Icon in second place, with Godolphin's Skiffle staying on for third spot, half a length away.

O'Brien said: "She is an improving filly, and Fastnet Rock's seem to get better as they get older.

"Seamie said not to be afraid of going back with her for the Matron Stakes. She's getting quicker."

Sky Bet cut Somehow to 12/1 from 25s for the Matron Stakes and to 10/1 from 25s for the Qipco Champion Fillies and Mares Stakes.
