Celerina takes aim at Rockingham

Celerina, narrowly denied by Margot Did at Ayr on Saturday, is likely to have her next race in the Rockingham Handicap at the Curragh next month.

Tommy Stack's filly had previously finished third to Masamah at York, and continued on the upgrade when flashing home behind Michael Bell's classy three-year-old.

With connections already thinking of a trip to Dubai next year, she is not likely to be seen too many more times this campaign.

"She's improving away the whole time," said Fozzy Stack, the trainer's son and assistant.

"We might look at the Rockingham for her at the Curragh. There's also a Listed race at Tipperary we might consider.

"One thing we won't do is over-race her this summer as we might be thinking in terms of Dubai for her next spring because she handles firm ground.

"She ran a super race at Ayr on ground that she wouldn't have liked.

"Margot Did is a very solid filly - she's got plenty of good form in Group races - so hopefully we might enjoy a day out with her somewhere."
