VIDEO: Curragh success No Speak Alexander
on 03 May 2021
Jessica Harrington saddled the first two home in the Group 3 race for fillies on Monday

Jessica Harrington’s No Speak Alexander made a successful seasonal reappearance in the Group 3 Coolmore Stud Circus Maximus Irish EBF Athasi Stakes at the Curragh on Monday.

The filly was a winner as a two-year-old and ran competitively in a handful of black-type contests before ending her season with fourth place in the Group 3 Weld Park Stakes.

Returning to the same track for her first run of the new campaign, the three-year-old was this time a one-and-a-half-length winner when beating stablemate Zaffy’s Pride at 4/1.

Jockey Shane Foley believes the Shalaa filly could now be a contender for the Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas back at the Curragh on May 23rd.

He said: “She was good, she’s been working like that and I was keen to ride her over the other.

“She’s a filly that I thought might have run well in the French Guineas, but we didn’t have her in it.

“She’s probably entitled to come back for the Irish Guineas now after that. She likes that bit of juice in the ground.”

Champers Elysees, winner of last year’s Matron Stakes, was sent off the 2/1 favourite but could finish only fourth under her Group 1 penalty.
