Tom Mullins will consider giving Mia Mento an outing at the Curragh on Monday week ahead of a possible tilt at the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes.

The two-year-old daughter of Casamento created a big impression when making a successful racecourse debut at Leopardstown last week, for a trainer more known for his exploits in the National Hunt sphere.

The victory came as no surprise to Mullins, who is contemplating giving his filly another run to discover whether a step up Group One company in the Phoenix Stakes on August 12 is realistic.

Mullins said: “She came out of the race perfect. She didn’t have as hard a race as I thought she did, which was nice.

“We went into the race very hopeful. I haven’t much to work her against, but Niall (McCullagh, jockey) had been full of her and it was nice to see her go and do it.

“There’s a winners’ race at the Curragh on Monday week that might be suitable. It will be against colts and geldings, but I think the conditions suit her quite well.

“It might be nice to get another run into her and learn a bit more about her with a view to taking on the top boys in the Phoenix Stakes.”
