Believeinmiracles produced a game front-running performance to open her account in the fillies maiden at Gowran Park this afternoon.

Nathan Crosse was soon disputing on the Frankel filly and she was in front after a couple of furlong in the extended nine furlong contest.

Willie McCreery's charge found plenty when asked in the home straight and galloped on strongly to post a two-and-a-quarter length win over Esculenta

The Niarchos Family-owned winner had been a close fifth in a Curragh maiden on her previous outing.

McCreery said:- “I thought she ran very well in the Curragh the last day only beaten about two lengths and the horse that finished just in front of her won well at Tipperary.

“She’s a big frame of a filly and is strengthening up the whole time. She’s very well bred and it’s great to get a win for the Niarchos family.

“She took a long time to come to hand and is a big, raw filly. In fairness they have done a great job here with the ground.

“We’ll try and get a bit of black type for her.”
