First Seal To Bounce Back

Tuesday, 24th March 2015

John Thompson says he expects top-class filly First Seal (Fastnet Rock-Episode, by Scenic) to bounce back from her tough run in the Coolmore Classic when she returns to her own age group in Saturday's Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill, reports horseracing.com.au. The Fastnet Rock filly was beaten by the Peter Moody-trained Plucky Belle when swamped late after enduring a wide run in the Gr1 fillies and mares feature at Rosehill on 14 March. "She has come through the race very well," Thompson told RSN. "She just did it a little tough there, the early effort told in the finish. I'll probably say the winner didn't go past her, she probably stopped." First Seal is the highest rated of the 20 fillies nominated for Saturday's $400,000 Gr1.
