KEN Condon was pleased with the performance of Mamba Noire in the Grangecon Stud Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

The daughter of Wootton Bassett finished a clear third behind Aidan O'Brien's pair of Clemmie and Butterscotch and could head to England for her next appearance.

"I think the two Ballydoyle fillies that finished ahead of her are both probably Group 1 fillies," said Condon. "There was no hiding place. A few of the jockeys that rode in it said it rode like a good race and that's the way it looked.

"Our filly came home well in the last 75 yards, which is always good to see and got the six furlongs well.

"She might get seven furlongs later in the year, but we might stick to six for now and she'll have an entry in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes in Newmarket on Friday week.

"We'll see how she is in the next week or so but she seems to have come out of the race on Sunday well."
