Mary Tu­dor can reign in Clas­sic style

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RACING -

MARY Tu­dor bids to earn her­self a shot at Clas­sic glory in to­day’s Der­rin­stown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial at Leop­ard­stown.

Af­ter shap­ing with prom­ise in Group-race com­pany as a ju­ve­nile, the daugh­ter of Dawn Ap­proach made an im­pres­sive start to her three-year-old cam­paign, dom­i­nat­ing her ri­vals in last month’s Salsabil Stakes at Na­van. She steps back up in class and comes back in dis­tance this week­end and trainer Wil­lie McCreery hopes his filly can con­firm her­self a ma­jor con­tender for the Tat­ter­salls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Cur­ragh on May 27.

“Mary Tu­dor has come out of her first run of the sea­son re­ally well. This will be on bet­ter ground and back over the Guineas trip, so it will be a nice trial for her,” said McCreery. “The bet­ter the ground, the bet­ter she will be and it was nice to get that win with her as she had some very good form last year.”
