The seven-furlong Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden staged on Leopardstown’s Thursday evening card has often played host to a future luminary and the latest renewal could have thrown up another as Ballydoyle’s Bedtime Story (Ire) (Frankel {GB}–Mecca’s Angel {Ire}, by Dark Angel {Ire}) earned instant TDN Rising Star status. Settled in mid-division early by Wayne Lordan, the 5-1 shot enjoyed an untroubled run down the outer in the straight as the stable’s 8-11 favourite Giselle (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) became ensnared in traffic deeper towards the rail.

Surging ahead from 150 yards out, the grey asserted to score by 1 1/4 lengths from that promising daughter of Newspaperofrecord (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) to lead home a one-two for the sire who now boasts 39 TDN Rising Stars. The Adrian Murray-trained Queens Fury (Fr) (Blue Point {Ire}) was a further half-length away in third. “She’s a lovely filly and had been working nicely,” commented Lordan, who partnered Bedtime Story’s G3 Staffordstown Stud S.-winning half-sister Content (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) to be third in this 12 months ago. “She came home well when she hit the rising ground and is very similar to Content, has the same quality and ability but covers more ground than her. Ryan’s is quite a nice filly too and probably didn’t get the clearest run like me. It rode like a nice maiden and a mile will be a perfect option for her.”
