On Friday Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien sends just one runner over to England for the second day of the July meeting at Newmarket and when sending his runners across the Irish Sea he has seen huge success, which is why it is worth taking notice of.

The Ballydoyle maestro has a strike rate of 15% when bringing his horses over to England from Ireland landing 368 winners from his 2473 runners.

Mother Earth has been one of the stars of the mile fillies division this term running superbly in two Group One events and off the back of those she is the worthy favourite for this event.

The filly was a fair juvenile landing a Group Three event on her third start, and then towards the end of last season finishing second at the Breeders' Cup meeting in a Group One and also finishing a good third in the Group One Fillies' Mile.

The yard did not know what to expect for the daughter of Zoffany but on seasonal debut this term she managed to land the 1000 Guineas in taking style.

Off the back of that she was sent to France looking to land the 1000 Guineas double, but she could only finish second, giving another good account of herself.

Last time out the filly was seen finishing a close third behind Alcohol Free and Snow Lantern and will need to reverse the form but getting nicer ground could be the key.
