Hannon eyes another Memory

After seeing Pathfork rattle the bookmakers' feathers and their 2,000 Guineas market last Saturday, the Curragh is again centre stage this weekend as the fillies take over with the 38th running of the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes.

The race is set to feature the current 1,000 Guineas favourite Memory, who represents the duo of trainer Richard Hannon and jockey Richard Hughes -- both of whom have enjoyed plenty of big race success at Ireland's HQ in recent times.

Hannon, of course, sent over Canford Cliffs to claim the season's opening Classic, the Irish 2,000 Guineas, and he is again hopeful that he can make his voyage a successful one with Memory.


The Curragh's own Richard Hughes will again be on board, and Hannon said: "Hughesie was really pleased with Memory on Saturday morning and although the filly messed about at home in the spring, she has become so much more professional. She is fresh and raring for another race, so Sunday cannot come quick enough," the trainer admitted.

Pathfork's trainer Jessica Harrington will bid to unleash another Guineas hopeful and land her first ever Group One winner on the flat after her charge Laughing Lashes was supplemented as expected yesterday morning.

The owners, the McElroy syndicate, forked out the €23,500 fee for the daughter of Mr Greeley, who scored at the third time of asking in the Debutante Stakes and certainly represents a stable in form.
