Could Be Trouble (Yeats) Wins The Mares Novices Hurdle At Ayr

Daughter Of Yeats Delivers On Stable Debut

Could Be Trouble (6m Yeats - She’s No Trouble, by Zaffaran) made a winning start for the Donald McCain stable in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Ayr on Tuesday.

Chasing the leaders under Brian Hughes, the daughter of Yeats disputed from three out and was pushed along to lead at the following flight. Clear approaching the last, she did enough on the run-in to win by two lengths.

Could Be Trouble was recording her first success in the silks of KC Sofas Ltd, having been sold privately after her 15 length maiden hurdle win for Barry Fitzgerald. Bred by Mountainview Stud in County Tipperary, she hails from the family of Cheltenham Gold Cup victor Looks Like Trouble.
