Can’thelpfallin got off the mark in fine style winning the Fermoy Maiden at Cork on Wednesday for owner Mrs Paul Shanahan.
After an encouraging debut fourth the daughter of Starspangledbanner was ridden by jockey Mark Enright towards the rear of the field. Pushed along over 2f out, she soon made headway, recording an eased down three parts of a length win.
“She did it well and ran a nice race here the last day. She is a fine big filly, has taken a bit of time and hopefully has started to come to herself and is going the right way.
“We used to ride her out in a hood at home last year and she can be a little fractious at home. She wore a hood for the only time this year the last day and was well behaved so we left it off today.
“She will be better going a mile, her mother won over 1m2f. Mark rides her a good bit at home, comes in twice a week and it was nice to give him the chance – I had to leave him on her, it’s his birthday!” Fozzy Stack.
