Dream Ascot won her maiden on debut at Killarney on Tuesday evening for owner Peter Magnier, who also had success at Dundalk last week with his home-bred Wishing Star winning in good style.
Despite missing the break in the extended mile contest the daughter of Oasis Dream came home strongly to see off her rivals.
“We liked her and the first time I saw her was in the spring and we did a little breeze on the grass and I thought she worked quite well that day. She is a big filly and Fozzy just gave her time to mature.
“We were worried she’d run green as that was the only time she had been on grass and she popped out very slow. However, they went quick and started to come back to me and I’d say she’s a nice filly.
“It’s a surprise she won as we hadn’t her drilled for today but she is obviously a nice filly. It’ll depend on what the handicapper does as there are a couple of Listed races for her if he puts her up very high, if not there are a couple of fillies handicaps – it’s all open to her.” jockey, Chris Hayes.
