Lush Lashes made her mile specialist rivals look leaden footed as she atoned for a flop in the Oaks a fortnight ago with a brave Coronation Stakes success. Jim Bolgers filly had been sent off the 5-2 f

avourite for the fillies Classic but failed to handle Epsoms contours in returning a distant fifth to Look Here. Although convinced a mile and a half is the d

aughter of Galileos optimum trip, Bolger, who gained a controversial Derby win with New Approach the day a

fter the Oaks, was tempted to come back to a mile by the Group 1 status of the fourth day feature. And the plan came off as Lush Lashes and Kevin Manning, also successful on Bolgers Cuis Ghaire in the opening Albany Stakes, saw off Infallible

to win by three and a half lengths. Obviously I was very tempted to go for the 12-furlong Ribblesdale but we thought, having won a Group race, we would try to upgrade her to a Group 1, said

Bolger. Thats the only reason we went back to the mile - because its a Group 1. If the Ribblesdale wer

e a Group 1, we probably would over a mile and a half. I wouldnt be cocky

enough to say we were expecting this but her form was good, so we were hoping shed be quick enough for the mile here today. Now proud Irishman Bolger, who is in the hunt to win the trainers title in Britain, will return Lush Lashes to a mile and a half for the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh next month, for which Irish layers Cashmans list her at 6-4. At Epsom it was more the track than not getting the trip, so next time it will be a mile and a half, he added. All Im

thinking of at the moment is the Irish Oaks. Cashmans quote her at 6-4. Manning said: She travelled very well and we were in a lovely position all the way. She stays well and I think she didnt handle the track at Epsom - while at York, she put her head down and ran right the way to the line. John Gosden took Infallibles defeat on the chin, and said: She did nothing wrong and ran a blinder. The other filly just had more stamina in the last had half-furlong. We c

ame to beat

her and she outstayed us. Take nothing away from Jims filly but she likes this ground an

d our

s wants a bit os cut. Dermot Weld, trainer of Carribean Sunset

, said: Her next race could be the American Oaks at Hollywood Park. Full Result: ULT: LUSH LASHES (K J Manning, 5-1) 1; Infallible (11-2) 2;
