Fideles set to recoup losses

Adeste Fideles, a costly failure at Gowran Park 12 days ago, gets the nap in the Track Fillies Maiden at Listowel this afternoon.

She went off at 1-2 on that occasion, but proved no match for Ger Lyons’ shock winner, Crafted Mastery.

That winner led from start to finish and Adeste Fideles, making a belated seasonal debut and having only the second outing of her life, never promised to get on terms.

The daughter of Giant’s Causeway is entitled to come on plenty for that much-needed outing, however, and should also be well suited to stepping up a furlong in trip.

Aidan O’Brien trains Adeste Fideles and runs two in the featured Irish Stallion Farms’ EBF Premier Nursery, top weight Rule The Waves and Cocoon.

There may be only six runners in all, but this is wide-open, with the final nod falling on Cocoon.

She disappointed somewhat at Gowran Park last time, things just didn’t work out for her, but would have a leading chance on her second behind Fit For The Job at Tipperary previously.

The opening Irish Stallion Farms’ EBF Fillies Maiden may be best left to Michael O’Callaghan’s Clutchingatstraws.

She made a very promising start behind the useful Shepherd’s Purse at the Curragh and there is every reason to think will build on that performance.
