TRAINER Kevin Prendergast hopes La Collina will be "hard to beat" when she chases a second Group One in the Oxigen Enviromental Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh.
Winner of the Phoenix Stakes against colts as a juvenile, the four-year-old filly has failed to find the target since, but has run some excellent races in defeat, most recently chasing home Chigun in the Group Three Abu Dhabi Stakes.
She is now set to return to the highest level for the Pretty Polly on June 30.
Prendergast said: "She ran a good race the last day, she just bumped into a top-class filly on the day – a real Group One filly.
"I think she's come on again from her last run and I hope she'll be hard to beat in the Pretty Polly."
