Gold Bubbles continued Jim Bolger’s rich vein of form with victory in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at Leopardstown.

Gold Bubbles continued Jim Bolger’s rich vein of form with victory in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at Leopardstown.

The Street Cry filly made a big impression on her debut as she powered home in the hands of Kevin Manning.

The 13-2 chance drew alongside the 6-4 favourite Air Chief Marshall a furlong out and went clear of Aidan O’Brien’s colt in the last 100 yards to win by two and a half lengths.

Mister Tee made good late progress to get to within a head of the runner-up.

Bolger said: “We thought she would need seven furlongs, and that looked the case when she was sluggish in the early stages, but she did it well and we may now look at the Group Three Swordlestown Stakes at Naas.

“I would have no doubt that she will get a mile.”
