Hara flashes home

HARASIYA stepped up on her debut victory to claim Group Three honours in the Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown.

John Oxx's filly had made a winning bow over seven furlongs at the track last month and was sent off the 11/8 favourite to follow up with Johnny Murtagh on board.

"She did it nicely and she is a good filly. It was nice to see her step up and win comfortably. She wasn't doing a lot in front," said Oxx.

"It remains to be seen whether she'll handle good to firm ground. It's a bit of a question mark, but we'll find out when the time comes.

"We'll see now whether or not to go for the Debutante Stakes. She'll tell us when she wants to run.

Stan James were thoroughly impressed with her win and make Harasiya their 12/1 second favourite from 25/1 for next year's 1000 Guineas.

Nevis earned himself an initial quote of 20/1 for next year's Derby after an impressive victory in the Darley European Breeders Fund Maiden for the Aidan and Joseph O'Brien combination.
