Sacred Aspect is set to tackle the minimum trip for the first time in search of a Listed success at Tipperary on Saturday.

Trainer Ken Condon feels the Haatef filly will appreciate the drop in distance for the Danehill Dancer Tipperary Stakes after running over six furlongs in all her three starts to date.

She won over that trip on her second outing at Leopardstown before being drawn on the wrong side of the track when 12th of 19 behind Kiyoshi in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot.

"She's very likely to run. We've been happy with her since Ascot," said the Curragh handler.

"She was drawn one over there and all the race developed on the stands side so it was quite difficult for her, but in the circumstances we were pleased with her run.

"If you're not drawn in the right on the place on the day it can be very difficult.

"We also feel coming back a furlong with her will suit. She's been good since and the plan is to run on Saturday."

Aidan O'Brien is responsible for four of the 12 possibles with Coach House, Fountain Of Youth, Stubbs and Wilshire Boulevard while there is one English-trained entry in Ifwecan from Mark Johnston's Middleham stable.
