AVENUE GABRIEL HEADS TO IRISH 1000 GUINEAS

Avenue Gabriel (CHAMPS ELYSEES) is to be supplemented for the Irish 1000 Guineas after her promising third to Bracelet and Balansiya in the Irish 1000 Guineas Trial Gr.3 at Leopardstown on Sunday (30th March).

Trainer Paul Deegan commented: "The first three will turn out to be proper fillies and Avenue Gabriel has run very well.

"She'll be entered in the Irish Guineas now to keep our options open and I think she definitely deserves to line up on the start line for the Oaks. There is a lot more to come from her."

Avenue Gabriel was a first-crop two-year-old stakes winner for her sire CHAMPS ELYSEES last season, winning the Flame Of Tara EBF Stakes L. and placing twice at Group level including third in the Debutante Stakes Gr.2.
