EASY AS 1-2-3

Winter was even more impressive at the Curragh than she had been at Newmarket and bookies slashed her in price for the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot following her win

WINTER left her rivals in the cold as she bolted up in the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh.

Aidan O’Brien’s filly was looking to complete the Guineas double – just as stablemate Churchill had done on Saturday – and she did so in some style.


Ryan Moore never had anything to worry about as she swept past her rivals to scoot clear up the home straight.

Roly Poly and Hydrangea boxed on to finish second and third, making it a one-two-three for O’Brien, who was winning the race for a seventh time.

Moore said: “It was very easy. She gave me a lovely ride and it was very straightforward.

“She travelled and took me into the race without me asking her a thing and I couldn’t be more impressed by her today.

“She was relentless and kept building all the way to the line. It rode like a piece of work.

“You’d have to say she’s stepped forward with each of her runs and the way she felt today, I can’t see any reason why she won’t carry on progressing.



Winter was a class above her rivals once again

“I think the mile is fine, she’d probably get a little bit longer, but she’s a fast filly.”

O’Brien said: “I’m delighted with her. She came forward from the first day at Leopardstown to Newmarket and obviously we felt that she came forward then to today.



Winter could head to Royal Ascot next

“She’s not short of pace. You’d imagine she might get a mile and quarter when she gets a mile that strong here at the Curragh, but she’s a good traveller.

“If everything went well, you’d be thinking of the Coronation Stakes (at Royal Ascot) with her, because she is a good strong traveller.

“If everything is well then you have to make your mind up where you go after that. Do you go to Goodwood over a mile and a quarter (Nassau Stakes), or do you go to the Falmouth and those races?

“She’s a big, powerful filly and is very exciting.”



Churchill completed the 2,000 Guineas double on Saturday

The Ballydoyle handler also completed the 2,000 Guineas double with Churchill on Saturday.

On the feat of achieving the double-double, the trainer added: “It’s for everyone really. A lot of people work very hard.

“Over 20 years if I named out all the people, I’d only forget people. As each horse comes along there is a team of people around them. We’d be very grateful to a lot of people.”
