Viztoria takes Anglesey
Viztoria was an impressive winner of the Listed Anglesey Lodge Equine Hospital Blenheim Stakes at the Curragh under Johnny Murtagh.
The daughter of Oratorio started off a well supported 5-2 favourite having won her debut at Naas and she made it a winning start for a new trainer having joined Eddie Lynam in the interim.
Johnny Murtagh travelled well in behind early leader and stablemate, Boston Rocket but when he asked the filly to quicken with two furlongs to go and she was soon able to put daylight between herself and her rivals.
Snow Queen ran on to be a never nearer second having sat some way off the gallop.
Lynam said of the former Ado McGuinness-trained filly: "I got a phone call to train her and have only had her a few months.
"It's tough on Ado as he did a good job and deserves most of the credit.
"I was told she was a bit special when I got her, which puts you on a hiding to nothing as you can only mess things up.
"She's very professional and Johnny was very impressed.
"She will have one more run this year in a Group Two at Maisons-Laffitte.
"It will be soft there."
Sky Bet quote the winner at 20/1 for the English 1,000 Guineas.
