Hamariyna one of the stars in smart renewal of Oaks Trial at Naas

Tuesday, Jun 25 2019

The progressive Hamariyna will seek to bring up her hat-trick in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Naas Oaks Trial on Wednesday.

The Sea The Moon filly beat one of her main rivals, Dean Street Doll, by a length and a quarter in a Group Three at Leopardstown last month and has every chance of upholding that form despite a 5lb penalty.

That race was over a mile and she won her fillies’ maiden over nine furlongs in Tipperary, so this mile and a quarter should hold no fears, particularly as trainer Mick Halford has said she wants and will get further.

Richard O’Brien’s Dean Street Doll is highest-rated on 103 and is a threat alongside Dermot Weld’s unexposed Fairyhouse winner Search For A Song.

Weld and Aidan O’Brien have split the last eight renewals of this contest and the latter sends three into action – Gowran Park victor Flowering Peach, Chablis and Goddess who has a bit to prove after a couple of underwhelming performances.
