Lyons realistic about Lucy
Ger Lyons is not getting carried away by the Classic claims of Oh So Lucy.
The impeccably bred three-year-old filly, a daughter of Galileo out of Group One winner Miss Beatrix, holds entries in the Irish Guineas and Oaks.
She shaped nicely in three maidens last season, all of which have worked out well, specifically the latter at Dundalk which was won by Aidan O'Brien's Wading.
"Oh So Lucy worked with Lightening Pearl yesterday," said Lyons.
"She's a nice filly but the Irish handicapper is no fool and has given her a rating of 85 which is some 30lb shy of being a Classic horse.
"Her form has worked out very well and her pedigree is excellent, but she's still a maiden after three races.
"She's no Lightening Pearl and while she'll make up into a nice filly, I don't think the handicapper is ever that far away."
