Naughty Or Nice I thought the second was coming to gobble us up there. He (Declan) was drawn on the inside and we were holding her up a bit. He was in a bit of a pocket and when the chance came he had to take it and go a little bit sooner than he wanted to. For a green filly she was in front plenty soon enough and that was maybe contributing to her stopping a little at the end but it's great to win with her. She stays well, she got the trip well and she has a bit of a turn of foot too. She's not one paced by any means. I had thought after Gowran we might run her in the Naas Oaks Trial over a mile-and-a-quarter but she would probably appreciate a mile-and-a-half. She has an entry in the Ribblesdale Stakes but that might be a fair jump up. We'll see as she's still quite green and might keep improving. This is supposed to be a lead up race to the Queen's Vase and that would be an option but it is an extra furlong this year. Those are the two alternatives and it might be one or the other.

Naughty Or Nice She is a nice filly, she is a good-looking filly. She is lazy at home and we knew we had to bring her to the track to wake her up. We thought she could either wake up or run mid-division. Anyway she did wake up and when he gave her a crack in particular she finished very well. She is a nice filly. The O’Regan's (of Newtown Anner Stud) have had a bit of luck with Fastnet Rock, with Fascinating Rock of course, and they have been good supporters of the stallion. She will improve from the run and hopefully we might give her a go in a Listed race. There is one at Naas at the end of June that sticks out in my mind.
