Irish Oaks plan for Star Catcher
Connections of Star Catcher are looking to supplement her for Saturday's Irish Oaks at the Curragh after her recent Royal Ascot win.
The John Gosden-trained three-year-old was the third of four winners on the day for jockey Frankie Dettori in the Ribblesdale Stakes on June 20.
And as the Newmarket handler looks for a third success story at the Curragh on the back of Great Heavens' win in 2012 and Enable two years ago, it looks likely that Star Catcher will feature.
Owner-breeder Anthony Oppenheimer confirmed he is set to pay 40,000 euros for the daughter of Sea The Stars to race.
He said: "Mr Gosden was thinking of running her and unfortunately if you're not already entered, you have to supplement.
"It's a mile-and-a-half race for three-year-old fillies only. This is the last three-year-old only race she can run in.
"She was impressive on the day (at Royal Ascot) and she's going well."
