+POETIC CHARM (GB) (f, 2, Dubawi {Ire}Speirbhean {Ire} {SW-Ire}, by Danehill), a half-sister to the 2006 G1 National S. and G1 Dewhurst S.-winning champion and sire Teofilo (Ire), Ch. 2yo Colt-Eur, Hwt. 2yo Colt-Eng & Ire, G1SW-Eng & Ire, $645,596, was sent off the 3-1 second favourite breaking from the one stall and tracked the pace against the fence early. Freed from a pocket to gain the lead with a furlong remaining, the imposing homebred who is also a full-sister to this year’s G3 Derrinstown Stud 1000 Guineas Trial winner Bean Feasa (GB) drifted left but was in control and hit the line with a length to spare over Sizzling (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). “She did a nice bit of work the other day and the fillies are just coming to hand now,” trainer Charlie Appleby said. “I’ve not really run many fillies, as they have taken time to come to hand. She has got a great pedigree and trip-wise she will get further. She would be fine over seven furlongs or a mile. I know this was only a maiden, but she has got plenty of boot. She travelled very well and picked up well. She is a filly with a bright future. The [G1] Moyglare [Stud S. at The Curragh Sept. 10], on the back of that, is quite a realistic target. To be fair it is a little bit tricky placing fillies like this when they win a class two maiden, as it rules them out of novice events. She might be one that has to be thrown in the deep end and go straight there.” Speirbhean, who broke her maiden in the same 1000 Guineas Trial as her daughter Bean Feasa when it was run as a listed race in 2001, also produced the dam of the G3 Blue Wind S. runner-up We’ll Go Walking (Ire) (Authorized {Ire}). She descends from the Canadian champion Victorian Queen, whose progeny includes the sires Judge Angelucci and War and the GI John Henry H. winner Peace (Naskra). Her yearling colt is again by Dubawi, while she was barren to Shamardal in 2017. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $8,476. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
