Goddess is Sky Bet's 14/1 favourite for next year's QIPCO 1000 Guineas following a spectacular performance at Leopardstown on Thursday evening.

The beautifully-bred daughter of Camelot is out of a half-sister to Galileo and looks to have plenty of the family's ability, judged on her 10-length demolition job in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden.

Ridden by Seamie Heffernan, the Aidan O'Brien-trained youngster was sent off the 1-2 favourite, having had little luck in running when ninth of 11 in a Curragh maiden at the end of last month.

O'Brien was not present, but Heffernan was clearly impressed.

He said: "She should have won at the Curragh. It was a typical Irish race, they were all boxed watching one another. I just let her jump and stride along today. I'm not sure how good a race it was, but she's way better than average. I'd say she's better than September (who won her maiden at Leopardstown and subsequently won at Royal Ascot and has been Group One-placed)."
