No Nay Never Filly Impresses Lavery With Maiden Success
The Sheila Lavery-trained Sovereigns Bright (3f No Nay Never - Gleaming Silver, by Dalakhani) returned from a short break to take Monday’s Irish EBF Fillies Maiden over ten furlongs at Roscommon.
Positioned second of 12 by Robbie Colgan, the grey measured up to the leader two furlongs from home and soon asserted, racing on clear to score by two lengths and a quarter. The even-money favourite Timemakesitfine took second, while newcomer Lady Stormborn (Camelot) caught the eye in third.
Lavery, who trains the winner for her brother John, commented after the race, “Sovereigns Bright is just back in off a break and I was a little worried that this would be a bit soon, but I love the way she did it, she was so professional. Hopefully there's a bit more for her.”
