Pleased Prendergast has Pretty plans for La Collina

La Collina is likely to stay in Ireland for her next outing after a pleasing return to action in the Gladness Stakes at the Curragh last month.

The Kevin Prendergast-trained filly was third to Custom Cut, beaten by just half a length – over seven furlongs – and is set for a step-up in trip.

The Pretty Polly Stakes over 10 furlongs are her main target.

Prendergast said: "She has come out of the Gladness very well and I'm very pleased with her.

"She wants good ground. I think we'll miss York (Middleton Stakes) as it looks a bit hot for her first attempt at a mile-and-a-quarter.

Options

"She has plenty of options, but the Pretty Polly (June 30, at the Curragh) is her main target.

"I'm hoping she'll get a mile and a quarter. There's plenty of stamina in her dam's side. Her grand-dam won an Irish Oaks."
