Curvy aiming for Irish Oaks success
07 Jul 2015 13:01
David Wachman is hoping Curvy can continue on an upward trajectory as she gears up for the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh on 18 July.
-
The Galileo filly won two handicaps at Navan earlier in the season before stepping up for a Group Three success in the Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh in May.
-
Wachman then raised her sights for the Group Two Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot and she duly fended off the challenge of 1,000 Guineas winner Pleascach by a length.
-
Curvy will now switch up again to Group One level, with Wachman anticipating further improvement.
-
He said: "Curvy is in good shape. We're happy with her and she has come back from Ascot in good form.
-
"She's improving all the time, but she needs to improve again to win a Group One.
-
"She has a good pedigree and has the physique - as well as the size and strength.
-
"She was a bit weak as a two-year-old, but she has kept stepping forward.
-
"They all level off at some point, but hopefully she hasn't yet."
