Irish Oaks plan for Star Catcher

16th July 2019, 10:50 by Craig Smithson

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."
