Magical effort at Leopardstown


Magical proved a class with a Critical victory from the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes.

Aidan O’Brien’s filly has invested much of her career chasing the brilliant Permit at the top level — but following this two-and-a-quarter-length success, she includes three Group One wins on her CV.
The favorite had a dream passing, closest to the speed set by stablemate Hunting Horn and generating much too much velocity for those in behind Ryan Moore.
From the O’Brien team chased her home, together using Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck and Magic Wand second another head off in third — in 20-1 and 12-1 respectively.
Mare Deirdre has been the horse in the race, trapped for remaining on best to finish fourth and racing area when the pace quickened.
However there wasn’t any stopping Magical, who was a stylish winner because she took great advantage of Enable’s lack for once, in the process making herself quotes of 6-1 from 14-1 from Paddy Power and Betfairand if she try to take on John Gosden’s mare again next month’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
O’Brien stated:»We’re thrilled. She’d a midsummer break and also her run back was at York. Enable was run by her and then we knew she was planning to come ahead a fantastic bit.
«»She was just ready to go to York. Obviously Let is a great filly and if we saw her running that we looked forward to this race and the fall after that.
«We knew that she was likely to be in real good shape for today and I couldn’t have been happier with her.
«She is a lovely filly. We understand she receives a half and the mile and handles an ease from the ground, she was right back on fast floor today to a quarter and a mile and Ryan gave her a lovely ride.
«She’d actually come forward from York. Quickened how she did and went like this, Ryan said she doesn’t do much in front and she came outside, she’s a filly.
«This is the next race of her fall campaign program and she is really something to anticipate.
«The plan was supposed to go to the Arc from here, but typically what happens is we notice how they come out of it, talk to the lads and they see whether they stay about the programme or go a different way.
«It is something great to need to think about.»
