Cotai Glory Filly Strikes At Group Level In Milan


Cotai Glory | Tally-Ho Stud


Bottle Of Bubbles (Ire) (Cotai Glory {GB}), one of two horses in the G3 Premio Primi Passi for trainer Florian Guyader and owner Theresa Marnane, ran out a narrow winner against colts in the 1200-metre contest at San Siro on Thursday.

Part of a 7-2 joint entry with stablemate Mandega (Fr) (Panis), the £18,000 Tattersalls Ireland September yearling raced at the rear of the field as Optically (Ity) (Le Vie Infinite {Ire}) led. She charged up on the heels of the stalking second Saputello (Ity) (Lord Chaparral {Ire}), before shifting toward the outside for her challenge past halfway.

It took most of the stretch to subdue the new leader as Optically dropped back, but she bested that foe just inside the final furlong, and held off a closing Vero Atleta (Ire) (Churchill {Ire}) to win by a neck. Saputello hung grimly on for third by a half-length. Mandega was a staying on fifth, behind Edith Dei Grif (Ity) (Sakhee's Secret {GB}).

A winner at first asking at Lyon-Parilly in March, the bay was second in the Listed Premio Alessandro Perrone three starts later in Rome on May 22. She was fifth at Chantilly on June 5 in her most recent appearance.


Pedigree Notes

Cotai Glory celebrated his third black-type winner and second group winner with Bottle Of Bubbles's victory. His Atomic Force (Ire) has won twice at group level in France, while Purciaretta (Ire) struck at the listed level in Italy. The young Tally-Ho Stud-based sire has eight other stakes-placed horses to his name.

The winner is the third foal and first winner for her dam, who won twice as a juvenile. This is the same female family as G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine Airwave (GB) (Air Express {Ire}), herself the dam of five black-type winners including Meow (Ire) (Storm Cat), the dam of Group 1-winning Galileo (Ire) full-siblings Churchill (Ire) and Clemmie (Ire).
