Went down with a spirited effort behind Red Riding Hood (Group 2 fifth on next start) over today's trip at Curragh, that on the back of fine effort when second at Saratoga; previous Longchamp winner is a solid performer at this level and the first-time cheekpieces won't need to bring about a whole lot more for her to earn a fourth career win.
