Stepping up from her striking Wolverhampton debut win, Forest Fairy (Ire) (Waldgeist {GB}–Bahama Girl {Ire}, by Lope De Vega {Ire}) booked her Classic ticket with success in Wednesday’s Listed Cheshire Oaks. Kept in a pocket throughout the home turn, the Ralph Beckett-trained 11-4 shot was out in time to reel in Ballydoyle’s Port Fairy (Ire) (Australia {GB}) close home for a head verdict. “She did well, as she was very green still and had never been on the grass,” jockey Rossa Ryan said. “She was very timid in coming out from behind, but dug deep for me today and I would be very disappointed if she doesn’t take a massive stride on from today. She’ll definitely be better when the ground gets softer, she’s a big rangy filly who gets a mile and a half well and might even stretch out further later. She’s there physically, but mentally is still working it out.”
