Chrysanthemum romps toAlleged victory
Report: Curragh, Sunday
Run Kildare 13th May Alleged Stakes (Listed Race) 1m2f, 4yo+
CHRYSANTHEMUM made it two wins from two starts in 2012, winning in fine style despite having to concede weight to her six rivals.
A Group 3 winner first time up, David Wachman's four-year-old made all under a clever ride from Wayne Lordan, who had them all at it a long way out. He allowed his nearest pursuers to close on him before kicking clear again inside the final two furlongs.
The filly, who has made every one of her seven career starts at the Curragh, was seventh in last year's Irish 1,000 Guineas and finished third in the Pretty Polly, behind Misty For Me and Midday.
Chrysanthemum started this season with an easy Group 3 win over Guineas hopeful Twirl and the filly, who runs in Michael Tabor's colours, looks to have improved from three to four.
Wachman said: "She did it well and it was a good ride by Wayne [Lordan]. She's a bit better than them over that trip. There's lots of races for fillies like her. Anything from a mile to ten furlongs she's capable."
Vivacious Vivienne finished second, with Clare Glen in third.
