Actress brings more success for Declaration Of War

The Aidan O’Brien-trained Actress (2f Declaration Of War-Nasty Storm, by Gulch) brought more first-crop glory for Declaration Of War on Sunday.

Set off a warm favourite for what looked a typically classy Curragh maiden, Actress comfortably scored by three-quarters of a length under Donnacha O'Brien.

"Probably six furlongs would suit her even better but the race was here for her and she's done it very nicely,” said the winning rider. "I suppose Royal Ascot would have to be on the cards now."
