AID RUMPLED; Money continues to pour on O'Brien's Guineas filly.

Byline: By Garry Owen

PUNTERS continued to nail their colours to the mast on Aidan O'Brien's Race For The Stars in the 1000 Guineas.

After his Guineas favourite Rumplestiltskin worked at the Curragh on Sunday, O'Brien said: "She's very quick to do things and we'll wait and see whether she goes to HQ or Longchamp."

Race For The Stars, a half sister to Hawk Wing is now 12-1 following continued support with William Hill. Stable mate Alexandrova, second in the Meon Valley Stud Fillies Mile, has shortened up as favourite for the Oaks and is in a point from 11-1 to 10's.

Hill: 1000 Guineas: 3 Rumplestilt skin, 5 Nannina, 7 Silca's Sister, 9 Flashy Wings, 12 Race For The Stars.

Hill: Oaks: 10 Alexandrova 14 Chenchikova, 16 Rumplestiltskin, 20 Nannina, Scottish Stage, 25 bar.

Meanwhile, the front two in the betting for Monday's Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse were backed again yesterday, with Cheltenham's William Hill Trophy winner Dun Doire trimmed to 7-2 favourite and Forget The Pastcut a point to 8's.

Trainer Paul Keane is likely to take All In The Stars out of the Fairyhouse showpiece and keep him for the Gala Casinos/Daily Record-sponsored Scottish National at Ayr on April 22.

He said: "The horse is in very, very good shape and Ayr has been his target all season. You could say I'm putting all my eggs in the Scottish basket! I feel the four miles and a furlong at Ayr will suit him better."
