Alluringly (9/4) ran out an impressive winner of the Tipperary Races Fillies Maiden on her return from a 186 day break.

Babulena went off the even money favourite but Dermot Weld's grey had no answer to Ballydoyle'sAlluringly a furlong out and four and three parts of a length split them at the line. There was eight lengths back to Hushing in third.

"You'd have to be very happy with that and we'll go gentle now. She's a nice filly and has a great pedigree," said winning trainer Aidan O'Brien on the Seamie Heffernan-ridden victor.

"We'll look at an Oaks Trial now."

Meanwhile on his Craven Stakes 'also-ran' O’Brien said: "War Decree was babyish and was off a long time. Ryan said he rode very babyish and we'll just go gentle now. We're hoping he might leave that behind him."
