Wannabe out to go one better

Racing at the Curragh

Wannabe Better will stick to maiden company in a bid to open her account after playing second fiddle to Classic hope Moth at the Curragh.

The Tommy Stack-trained filly had shown some promise in two starts as a two-year-old and achieved her best placing to date when filling the runner-up spot behind Aidan O'Brien's impressive winner.

While Moth could now go for such major races as the Irish 1000 Guineas and both English and Irish Oaks, Wannabe Better is unlikely to have lofty ambitions until she gets that elusive first win on the board.

"She's come out of the race well and I guess we will take her somewhere for a maiden in a couple of weeks' time," said the trainer's son and assistant, Fozzy Stack.
