Amo Racing filly relishes soft ground in Polonia Stakes
Fix You has suggested to us from day one that she was a really talented filly, and she more than demonstrated that on the track at Cork in the Listed Polonia Stakes.
Every drop of the 25mm of overnight rain increased her chances, but it was still a pleasant surprise to see her win as well as she did, looking the winner as soon as Seamie Heffernan took up an ideal position in the first half furlong. She quickened up in the style of one who will be better than Listed level in her preferred conditions, and with so few miles on the clock she’s another for the Amo Racing team to really look forward to.
Her success took the yard’s record in Ireland to 2-3, all at Listed level, with Lady Hollywood making her pattern race breakthrough at Naas and Lady Bullet also achieving her black type at Fairyhouse.
It was another great week for the Amo team with Maximum Impact a cosy winner of the Royal Ascot Trial at Ascot on Wednesday. Having been a wide-margin winner on desperate ground on his debut at Leicester this race was going to provide far more of an indication of his current level, and he came through it really well despite obvious signs that he’s not the finished article.
It was pleasing that he was able to repeat, and even improve on, his debut effort on very different ground, and up against a forward, professional rival. All three options would be open to him at Royal Ascot at this point and it’s exciting for the whole team to have an unbeaten two-year-old potentially heading there!
