Remember Alexander has come up against high-class opposition throughout her career and, with conditions in her favour, looks certain to go well. SAPPHIRE ended her last campaign with a very easy success over the trip at the Curragh. She's had a long break but won first time back last season and this looks made for her. Soon was behind Remember Alexander at Leopardstown and was well beaten when runner-up to Speaking Of Which at the Curragh though she faces this trip for the first time and her pedigree suggests it will suit. Betterbetterbetter didn't run badly in the Oaks and this progressive Galileo filly looks to have every chance on just her fifth start.
