Fallen Angel avenges Newmarket disappointment to win Irish 1,000 Guineas on famous day for Karl Burke

Karl Burke clinched two Guineas golds in the space of an hour as Fallen Angel roared to victory in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, shortly after Darnation landed the German equivalent.

Fallen Angel bounced back from Newmarket disappointment to provide trainer Karl Burke with a second Classic success in the space of an hour in the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh.

A Group One winner at the Kildare track in last season’s Moyglare Stud Stakes, the daughter of Too Darn Hot finished only eighth as favourite for the 1,000 Guineas three weeks ago, but showed her true colours on Irish soil just 45 minutes after stablemate Darnation had won the German 1,000 Guineas in Dusseldorf.

Fallen Angel was the 11/4 market leader to reward those who kept the faith and after a smart start raced on the pace from the off in the hands of Danny Tudhope.

“She is very versatile ground wise and takes everything that comes in her stride.”

Coral cut Fallen Angel’s odds for the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot to 4/1 from 10/1, making her the joint-favourite alongside Newmarket Guineas heroine Elmalka.
