Skiffle tuned in for the Curragh

By Graham Clark

Godolphin's lightly-raced filly Skiffle features among 18 possibles for the Snow Fairy Fillies Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

The daughter of Dubawi will bid to bounce back to form after she was a well-beaten fifth to Minding in the Investec Oaks, for which she was supplemented by trainer Charlie Appleby, when sent off 6-1 second-favourite.

She had looked an exciting prospect when winning her previous start at Goodwood.

Two other British-based entries are Mick Channon's Epsom Icon and We Are Ninety, trained by Hugo Palmer. Somehow is Aidan O'Brien's only entry, while Dermot Weld is triple-handed with Adool, Discipline and the unbeaten Rose De Pierre.

Andrew Slattery has left in his Galway Festival winners Creggs Pipes and Planchart, but expects just the latter to run. The Thurles trainer said: "I would say we'll only run Planchart. She's absolutely super since Galway and couldn't be better."
