Aloha Star opened her account in good style on Thursday when winning the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at Bellewstown under Andrew Slattery for owners David Keoghan and the Partners Partnership.

Justifying favouritism the daughter of Starspangledbanner stuck to her task well and went on to win by by half a length.

“Her experience probably told as well as the fillies allowance and claim.

“She’ll get a bit further and wants it ideally. It was a sharp five in Tipperary the last day, where she was doing her best work at the end and she was doing her best work at the end there.

“We’ll step her up to six somewhere but she’s after winning anyway. They went hard and she kept at it well.” Fozzy Stack.
