Bloomfield ran out the winner of a flat race that resembled a three mile chase at the end, as she won the Listed Irish Stallion Farms EBF Noblesse Stakes at Cork this afternoon.

Five fillies and mares lined-up for this 1 ½ mile slog in the heavy.

Geoffrey’s Girl took the field along and was soon a couple of lengths clear of her rivals.

Past halfway, the quintet were well strung out, with Geoffrey’s Girl leading Glamorous Approach and Bloomfield.

Turning for home, Geoffrey’s Girl quickly came under pressure and Bloomfield ranged up travelling well, going on.

Heading to the furlong pole, Clear Skies emerged to challenge Bloomfield, but the former ran out of petrol with half a furlong to race.

Bloomfield and Billy Lee went on to record a facile victory from Glamorous Approach and Clear Skies.

Winning trainer Willie McCreery said: “It’s grand to win and she is as honest a filly as you can get. My only concern was about her fitness-wise – she is very honest and tries very hard, but how can you judge after that (testing ground conditions)?

“I have her in next week (Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan) and I’d say she’ll stay the mile and three-quarters, but I don’t think running her is the right thing to do. I wanted to see if she was a Cup filly, because she does settle so well and all she does is gallop.

“I was looking at next week, but she has had too hard a race there and tried her heart out. Billy said she waddled when he pulled her up, but that was purely due to the ground.

“There are plenty of options both here and abroad and she is very, very well bred so we’ll try to find a Group Three with her.

“She is the first filly Johnny Connaughton sent to me and I’m delighted to have her.”
