Sky Lantern Leads the Way in Moyglare Stud Stakes
1 Sky Lantern 7/1
Sky Lantern put her rivals to the sword in the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes landing the big prize for Richard Hannon at the Curragh.
The grey, runner-up in the Sweet Solera at Newmarket and the Prestige at Goodwood on her last two starts, travelled in mid-division for Richard Hughes and came to challenge inside the two-furlong pole.
The 7-1 shot produced a very smart turn of foot to put the race to bed and ran on strongly to beat outsider Scintillula by two and a half lengths, with the favourite Harasiya in third spot after holding every chance.
Hannon's son and assistant, Richard jnr, said of the two-and-a-half-length winner: "She's a good filly. She was lucky last time she came here (to Naas), so we decided to supplement her, and she was probably the best filly in the race at Goodwood last time, but it didn't go to plan.
"She now gets an entry into the Breeders' Cup and that is certainly an option, but the owner is unfortunately in Hong Kong so we can't discuss plans right now.
"She'll stay a mile and she can be a Guineas filly next year. She's one to look forward to."
Trainer John Oxx said of Harasiya: "She ran well. She changed her legs a bit and the ground might have been a bit fast.
"She runs well on soft ground, but hopefully she'll handle better ground with more experience. I'd say she's done enough for this year."
