Jessica Harrington banks on three runners for Naas outing

JESSICA Harrington is hoping that having three runners in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Naas Oaks Trial will pay dividends tomorrow.

The County Kildare trainer saddles Remember Alexander, Dane Street and Violet Lashes in the Listed contest which she would like to see result in black type for members of her trio.

Remember Alexander has to give 5lb to all her rivals as she was a Group Three winner at Leopardstown last July, when she beat no less than subsequent Dewhurst Stakes victor Parish Hall.

Dane Street and Violet Lashes are stepping up from maiden company with stable jockey Fran Berry plumping for the former.

"They are all in good form and being fillies they are looking for black type or more of it, so you have to run them," said Harrington.

"With Remember Alexander we just hope the blinkers might make a difference to her.

"The other two are both coming off maidens so we will wait and see how they go."
