P2P Replay

P2P.ie Review: Castlegrace Rose left a lasting impression when finishing a fine second on her only start to date in the four-year-old mares’ maiden at Ballyarthur. Trained by Aidan Fitzgerald, the daughter of Oscar jumped and travelled notably well throughout, before coming to throw down a strong challenge after the penultimate obstacle under Derek O’Connor.  The half-sister to Grade 2 chase winner Castlegrace Paddy, battled on gamely in the home straight before tiring a little late in the day. Having lost little in defeat here, this debutant looks open to plenty of improvement and has the potential to develop into a very smart mare.
