2nd-NEW, £7,000, Mdn, 4-14, 2yo, f, 5fT, 1:02.24, g/s.
+FIERY CHARACTER (IRE) (f, 2, Dragon Pulse {Ire}–Intricate Dance, by Aptitude), ignored at 33-1, immediately scoffed at those odds with a sharp start and always held a slight edge over Camargue (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) in front. Seeing off the attentions of that relative of Dubai Millennium (GB) inside the final furlong, the €18,000 GOFSPT yearling drew away to win by two lengths from Perfect Madge (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}), who took the runner's-up spot from Camargue by a head. Fiery Character, who becomes the first winner for his first-season sire (by Kyllachy {GB}) standing for €5,000 at the Irish National Stud, hails from a Juddmonte family featuring the MGSW Lolly for Dolly (Ire) (Oratorio {Ire}) and Henry Cecil's Ebor winner Tuning (GB) (Rainbow Quest). “She's been very professional all the way through and was ready three weeks ago, but I held on for this race as she is decent,” trainer Tom Dascombe said. “Her pedigree is alright and the Chester May meeting could be next, as it's great grounding for [Royal] Ascot. She's a big filly who has always found life easy. She wasn't stopping there and I think she'd have won by further over six.” . Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $6,432.Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
