Rizeena sinks Moyglare duo
Rizeena lowered the colours of the 'big two' to win a rough renewal of the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh.
Clive Brittain's filly was not without support but was still sent off at 9/2 behind Tapestry and Kiyoshi who dominated the market for the seven furlong Group One contest.
Racing towards the rear of the field, she came through powerfully in the closing stages - as she had in the Prix Morny against the colts over a furlong shorter last time - and swept past Kiyoshi and Tapestry who were involved in a barging match from some way out.
After a lengthy inquiry the stewards decided to reverse the placings of Tapestry and Kiyoshi with Aidan O'Brien's Tapestry promoted to second.
Brittain said: "I don't want to take anything away from the horses who have beaten her before, but at Deauville she was taken out of her stride just as she jumped off and she's a big filly who needs to get into a rhythm.
"When she was taken out of it, Ryan (Moore) gave her a chance to get back into it and when she did she was flying.
"I wouldn't say we'd have beaten the winner (No Nay Never), but we'll take him on again any day over six or seven furlongs.
"I couldn't believe she was 7-1 (earlier in the day). I know you had the other filly who had won at Ascot (Kiyoshi), but we've come out and been competitive twice since.
"Newmarket was far too fast her down the hill. She was lugging and she's never lugged in her life before, so she was obviously uncomfortable.
"I came here doubly confident. I knew they'd go a good pace and credit to them, there were some good fillies in the race, but we're exceptionally good.
"I've trained some good fillies with Sayyedati, User Friendly and Pebbles, of course, and she may not be that far behind them.
"She's just developed and I'd be very surprised if she doesn't make a three-year-old given her temperament.
"I'll talk to Sheikh Rashid (Dalmook Al Maktoum, owner). We'll look at the Cheveley Park Stakes (Newmarket, September 28) and there is also the Prix Marcel Boussac (Longchamp, October 6) and the Fillies' Mile (Newmarket, Spetember 27)."
