Sister To Skyace Scores On Debut

The well-related Still Ciel (4m Westerner - Graigace, by Milan) made a bright start to her career on Sunday when landing the Four-Year-Old Mares Maiden at Boulta.

Bred, owned and trained by Breandan Long, the full-sister to Skyace was delivered at the final fence by Tom Hamilton and kept on well to win by two and a half lengths. Sadie Hill (Kingston Hill) claimed runners-up honours.

Still Ciel becomes the second winner out of Graigace, whose first foal Skyace (Westerner) landed the Grade 1 Mares Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse in April.
