Memory is reported to be 100pc following her disappointing run in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

The filly, owned by Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, lost her unbeaten record when finishing a well-beaten sixth to all-the-way winner Misty For Me.

Her trainer Richard Hannon believes the poor performance was down to her being drawn in stall one and he will now prepare her for the Electrolux Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket on October 1.

"There is not a bother on Memory. She is bucking and kicking and she never had a race, so we will freshen her up for the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket," he told

"We feared the worst when we saw we had drawn the one stall. It was always going to be very tough from the outside and she was 20 lengths adrift at the elbow.

"You just cannot make up that amount of ground in a Group One race, but Hughesie (Richard Hughes) looked after her when he saw that he could not possibly win, so we live to fight another day.

"We still think that she is a very good filly and we hope that she will bounce back at Newmarket."
