Rawaaq eases to Trial success

first_img Smullen said: “She’s a nice filly and all last year she was running consistently well. She handles these conditions extremely well and what she might lack in a little bit of class, she has in heart. “It’s hard to believe how heavy the ground is – it’s almost winter heavy. It’s very tough, but this filly revels in it.” Weld added: “Rawaaq did that well, she’s very consistent. What she lacks in size she makes up for in courage. “We’ll probably bring her back here (for the Derrinstown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial, May 12) before heading for the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh. “She’s light, so she should act on better ground as well. She’s a very sound, tough and consistent filly.” Rawaaq claimed a comfortable victory in the Leopardstown 1,000 Guineas Trial for Dermot Weld and Pat Smullen. A winner of a Curragh maiden and placed twice at Stakes level last year, the three-year-old was a 6-1 shot for this Group Three assignment and was the only runner still on the bridle at the top of the home straight. What Style put up a determined effort from the front end, but Rawaaq had too much for her inside the final furlong, asserting to score by a length and a quarter. Snow Queen made good late headway to pick up minor honours in third. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
