Charline chasing Irish Guineas

Euro Charline could bid to improve upon her Newmarket effort in the Etihad Airways Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on May 25, should conditions be suitable.

Connections felt she neither handled the undulations nor the quick ground in the Qipco 1000 Guineas on Sunday but were pleased with a prominent showing that saw her take fifth place behind Miss France.

And the £11,600 she earned was enough to repay the £10,000 supplementary fee.

"We were happy enough with the run. The jockey said the ground was a bit too quick and she got a little unbalanced, but she wasn't beaten far," said trainer Marco Botti.

"She was handy all the way. It was a good run and we were very pleased with her.

"At least she got the £10,000 back it cost to supplement her.

"We will probably go for the Irish Guineas. We will monitor the ground, but at the moment that is the plan."
