The filly was withdrawn at the start of the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot after getting trapped under the stalls, but was back to winning ways at the Curragh 12 days ago, and built on that to oblige by a neck as the 2/1 favourite under Colm O’Donoghue.

Oliver said: “I told Colm to keep it simple during the race and he has done that and given her a lovely ride.

“I bought her cheaply but she does have a pedigree and she is tough.

“She handles soft ground. I am not saying she needs it but it does play to her advantage and we won’t know how she goes on quicker until she tries it.

“I did not make an entry for her in the Lowther but the Phoenix Stakes back in Ireland and the Cheveley Park Stakes here in the autumn are options.”

O’Donoghue added: “She is still relatively inexperienced and I didn’t get to teach her a lot in her first two runs. Obviously, she has the ability and handles the ground well. It’s great to come here and win these big prizes and I am delighted for her connections.

“She is a lovely filly and she is going from strength to strength. Andy gave me great confidence - he said that I knew how to ride her and that I should just do my own thing.

“She is actually quite light on her feet and I think that she could also handle good ground. She has the class and ability to do it on that surface today as well and sometimes that’s the sign of a good filly. She’ s very tough and genuine but still quite raw and green, so hopefully there is a little bit of improvement to come.”

Maureen, who was a neck second in the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton for Richard Hannon, had won her maiden at Newbury three weeks in some style, and according to Richard Hannon Jnr, assistant to his father at East Everleigh, was the class act in the field today.

“I thought she was very unlucky,” said Hannon Jnr, “I think she should have won but she just didn’t get the gaps - she was the best filly in the race. The ground was fine for her but she just couldn’t get out when she wanted too.

“I think she is a very good filly and we will look at the Prix Morny and the Cheveley Park for her.”

Jadanna, who was third for trainer James Given, could go for the Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood next.

“She just didn’t quite get home” said her trainer. “On the day on this ground we just found two too good, we will probably go back to five furlongs now.

“The first thing that Frankie (Dettori) said to me when he got off was that she should go for the Molecomb at Goodwood and that he would ride her. She is in the Lowther as well and a flat six at York might just help.”
