    Donn keen on Moth

    Moth herself ran a cracker to finish third in the 1000 Guineas on her only subsequent start. Held up out the back in the early stages, she was slightly hampered at a crucial stage around the two-furlong pole just when she needed all her momentum to bring her forward. She may not have won without that incident, but she would have finished closer to Sky Lantern and Just The Judge than she did, and Just The Judge obviously upheld the Newmarket form by going and winning the Irish 1000 Guineas at The Curragh on Sunday.

    Moth may have become a little unbalanced in The Dip at Newmarket, but that may have been because she was trying to negotiate her way through traffic at the time. Given her pace, she should be able to travel well down around Tattenham Corner, and that should give her every chance of negotiating the contours.

    She should stay the trip, she goes on easy ground and fast ground, so the weather is not really a concern, and Joseph O'Brien has unsurprisingly chosen to ride her in front of Say and in the absence of Snow Queen. She has a big chance.
