Leopardstown's Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes next month is one of the possible targets for Group One winner Amazing Maria.

Trainer David O'Meara is exploring several Group One options for the five-year-old, who could finish only sixth to Qemah in the Prix Rothschild at Deauville after winning the race in 2015.

She could now go to Ireland on September 10 for the Matron in which she was seventh to Legatissimo in 2015.

"She has come out of the race fine. There are a few options for her. The Matron Stakes is under consideration while there is also the Sun Chariot," said O'Meara.
