Qualify oozes quality for Fastnet in G3

Qualify (Fastnet Rock) winning the G3 C L & M F Weld Park Stakes at the Curragh

The G1 Fillies’ Mile is a likely next stop for Fastnet Rock filly Qualify (2f Fastnet Rock-Perihelion, by Galileo) as she routed her opposition in the G3 C L & M F Weld Park Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

Aidan O’Brien saddled the high-class filly to score by three lengths in the colours of Louis and Kate Ronan and he is now looking towards the Newmarket G1 on October 17.

“We think she’s a very smart filly,” O’Brien told irishracing.com. “She just wanted to be pulled back as she’s a filly with a lot of speed. We have been riding her wrong. You can put her to sleep and she has a massive stride and can get there quickly.

“She’s a Fastnet Rock and loves that ground, and she could go for the G1 Fillies’ Mile if the ground stays good.”
