Horses To Follow » Zoom Zoom Babe

Zoom Zoom Babe

Zoom Zoom Babe did well to keep on as well as she did to finish second behind Gee Rex in the nine-and-a-half-furlong Mansionbet Handicap at Gowran Park on Wednesday. Strong in the market beforehand, Joseph O’Brien’s filly travelled well through her race towards the rear of a tightly-packed field. She picked up as the field fanned out in the home straight, but she met a little bit of trouble as she tried to make ground among horses. Switched towards the far side by Dylan Brown McMonagle, she stayed on well through the final furlong to just get up for second place behind her stable companion.

This was another good run in defeat from the Footstepsinthesand filly. She is a little bit unlucky not to have won yet this season. She was just caught by Star Of Cashel at Killarney in July, and she hasn’t had a lot of luck in-running in her three runs in the interim. Winner of her nursery at Leopardstown last October off a mark of 70, she remains potentially well handicapped on a mark in the mid-70s. A well-run mile on easy ground suits her well and, just a three-year-old, she has the potential to go higher.
