Magical looks set for Pretty Polly Stakes run - Aidan O'Brien


Trainer Aidan O'Brien has hinted that Magical's next run will be at the Curragh next month.

The Ballydoyle supremo says his star mare is likely to go in the Pretty Polly Stakes on June 28th.

O'Brien says she's also set to be entered into the Prince of Wales' at Royal Ascot but the Curragh seems a more realistic target:

"Magical is back in training and I think she might be entered in the Prince of Wales's, but it's possible she might not start until the Pretty Polly. We were lucky the lads agreed they would leave her for the year.

"She's only five this year and she's done very well physically.

He added that Irish Derby winner Sovereign is working toward a return to fitness:

Sovereign is back in training, he's done four bits of work back and we're just trying to go gentle with him and thinking of the autumn with him. He might have a run in the middle of the summer, but that's what we're trying to do, aim him at an autumn campaign.

"Kew Gardens is in good form and if he's going to Ascot he'll go there without a run. He was ready to run in Dubai and we were hoping to go to Leopardstown or Navan, but it's all been a bit of a mess for him really.

"The plan then was to give him a little rest and come back to Ascot. We're hoping to get him to Ascot, he'll be there without a run and we'll how we get on after that."
