The Eddie Lynam-trained Muirin quickened up in style to make an impressive debut in the Loder Irish EBF Fillies Race at the Curragh.

Wayne Lordan settled behind the leaders on the 16/1 shot before asking her to take closer order a furlong out.

She found another gear inside the final furlong to grab 2/5 shot Sizzling and was well on top at the line to record a three-quarters-of-a-length victory.

“We have her in the Moyglare and we like the filly, so you are always dreaming about them a bit,” said Lynam.

“Wayne sat on her a few weeks ago, when we brought her away, and he liked her.

“She's in the Moyglare and we'll think about it. Obviously Aidan will have six or seven good fillies to run in that.

“She's a filly we like a lot and she's got something going for her. Her mum was a very good filly for Tracey Collins, Giroutte, so it's not a shock. She's not an orphan and has got a bit of book.”
