Caravaggio’s Tenebrism Lights Up Cork

With her sights set firmly on sprinting in 2023, TDN Rising Star Tenebrism (Caravaggio–Immortal Verse {Ire}, by Pivotal {GB}) issued an early warning to that brigade with a smooth comeback win in the Listed Cork S. on Saturday. Keen initially for Ryan Moore, the 11-10 favourite eventually settled behind the pace and when cajoled to the front approaching the furlong pole showed her familiar surge to take control and register a 1 3/4-length success from the 3-year-old Wodao (Fr) (Showcasing {GB}). “She could go to Naas in two weeks and then to Royal Ascot, where she could run in both the group ones [the King’s Stand and Platinum Jubilee],” Aidan O’Brien said of the G1 Cheveley Park S. and G1 Prix Jean Prat in July heroine, who was racing under a five-pound penalty. “We had been trying to stretch her to seven and a mile, but obviously it is all pure natural speed she has. She has a lovely mind, relaxes and quickens and could be very exciting for the year. We took her here without training her hard and she was really only ready to come racing.”
