Trainer Clive Brittain is targeting more Group One glory for Rizeena before the season is out but has not decided where she will race next.

Rizeena impressed with a fine victory in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday and Brittain says he will see how the horse recovers before deciding on the next move.

The Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum-owned filly looks to have come through the race well but Brittain will hold back on making a decision.

The Shadwell Fillies’ Mile, the Connolly’s Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes and the Prix Marcel Boussac are all options for Rizeena but Brittain says the horse will dictate what happens next.

“It was very pleasing,” said the veteran trainer. “She’s eaten all her feed and completely cleaned up by seven o’clock this morning. It’s always good news when they eat up like that away from home.

“We came back from Deauville (Prix Morny) with no firm plans but we said we would go for the Moyglare if the filly was okay.

“She did lose quite lot of weight after her Deauville trip but was back to her racing weight after a week and, in fact, she had put five more kilos on, so she went to Ireland in tip-top form.”

He added: “We have several obvious options – there’s the Cheveley Park, the Marcel Boussac and the Fillies’ Mile. You could see her again in any one of the three. It depends on her now. She’s the trainer, I’m the learner!”
