Dimenticataa set to make her class tell

DIMENTICATAA is the class act on show at Cork this afternoon in the Listed Platinum Stakes over a mile.

Certainly, if she reproduces her display in the Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh then there can only be one result.

Kevin Prendergast’s daughter of Danetime finished to real effect to get within a neck of Finsceal Beo with the brilliant Peeping Fawn two lengths away in third.

That speaks for itself, but the problen is that Dimenticata has since finished a remote last of nine behind Peeping Fawn in the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh.

Perhaps, a combination of ten furlongs on soft ground didn’t suit and she has to get the benefit of the doubt!

The Group 3 Boss Croker Centenary Give Thanks Stakes is best left to Aidan O’Brien’s Uimhir A Haon, who may now be poised to strike.

She has clearly taken time to come to hand, but did indicate there was better to come when a creditable sixth to Peeping Fawn in the Irish Oaks at the Curragh.

O’Brien’s New Zealand is the nap choice in the Coolmore Ad Valorem EBF Maiden at Naas today. The son of Galileo made a promising start when fourth to Jim Bolger’s Luz De La Luna on this track last month.

Sean Levey partners New Zealand and has prospects of a double abaord another of O’Brien’s, Diamond Necklace, in the Irish Stallion Farms’ EBF Fillies Maiden. Sixth to Vague Notion at Gowran Park, she has been desperately disappointing, but this is a good opportunity.

I Confess, third to One Great Cat at Fairyhouse, gets the nod in the Tattersalls Ireland Auction Race.
