Smart Call finishes sixth


Nicci Garner: Smart Call has still not hit the giddy heights expected following her Met win last year and finished unplaced behind 9-1 chance Shamreen in the Moyglare “Jewels” Blandford Stakes (Group 2, fillies & mares) at The Curragh on Sunday.

Jessica Slack’s smart mare raced wide on the turn as Shamreen made all and was right there until about 200m out when she started fading and she eventually finished six lengths behind the winner.

She is now trained by Sir Michael Stoute and was ridden by Donnacha O’Brien. It was her fifth start overseas and she has now recorded a third and two fourth placings.
