Horse Racing - Racing: Romantic Proposal set for Naas acid test

Romantic Proposal will use the Anglesey Lodge Equine Hospital Woodlands Stakes at Naas on Monday as a springboard to loftier tasks, Eddie Lynam has revealed.

The six-year-old mare was successful on a pair of occasions at the Curragh last year, winning the Listed Dubai Duty Free Dash Stakes in June before top-level glory three months later in the Derrinstown Stud Flying Five Stakes.

A good break for Romantic Proposal

She has been absent since October, where she was below form in the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye de Longchamp Longines, perhaps not suited by the heavy ground on the day.

She will face nine rivals on her seasonal reappearance, including the top-rated Gustavus Weston, three-year-old Geocentric, who receives all the allowances for trainer Ger Lyons, and last year’s winner Mooniesta, who arrives race fit.

Star ready for return

Logo Hunter is another big danger, especially now he returns to the minimum distance after not being seen to best effect over further at Cork on his reappearance.

Romantic Proposal's trainer Lynam has revealed she is in sound order ahead of her return and she will be aimed at Group 1 targets throughout the season, including Royal Ascot and York.

"She's in good form and is ready to start back," he said. "She's a bit big in herself and will be entitled to improve for whatever she does here, but she seems well.

"Hopefully Royal Ascot will be a target for her. She could head on to either York or the Curragh next month before then. She'll have entries for both the King's Stand and the Platinum Jubilee Stakes at Ascot."
