FOUR GROUP RACES IN A ROW AT THE CURRAGH: They include the Group 1 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at 3.45 – SHAMROCK looks at each of the big races.
The ground is good, good to firm in places.
2:45 Bet Online At thetote.com Royal Whip Stakes (Group 3) (3yo+, Class 1, 1m 2f, 5 runners)
Just the one four-year-old, Caponata, takes on four three-year-olds in a race where it is difficult to dismiss any of them with confidence. Scintillula makes a quick reappearance after her third to Ernest Hemingway in the Group 3 Ballyroan Stakes at Leopardstown on Thursday. Mark Johnston’s raider Maputo is progressive but looks a little short given he had to work quite hard to win a Listed race at Hamilton last time out. He looks a lay at the prices.
SELECTION: Maputo (LAY) 2.45 Curragh
3:15 Friarstown Stud Debutante Stakes (Group 2) (2yo, Class 1, 7f, 6 runners)
Tapestry looks a worthy favourite after her winning debut here in July. She beat Chroussa (non runner here) that day and should certainly appreciate the extra furlong here.
SELECTION: Tapestry (NAP)
3:45 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes (Group 1) (2yo, Class 1, 6f, 5 runners)
I’ve been looking forward to seeing the reappearance of War Command who did me a great turn when winning the Coventry Stakes at 20/1. It was an extraordinary performance at Royal Ascot where he won by six lengths on only his second start. The form has taken several knocks since but it was impossible not to be taken by the style of his success.
SELECTION: War Command
4:15 Paypal Supporting Irish Autism Action Phoenix Sprint Stakes (Group 3) (3yo+, 6f, 7 runners)
Sea Siren won well for her new connections at Fairyhouse last time out last month. She was a triple Group 1 winner in Australia. She can strike again here.
SELECTION: Sea Siren
NAP: Tapestry (3.15 Curragh)
LAY: Maputo (2.45 Curragh)
WIN: War Command (3.45 Curragh)
WIN: Sea Siren (4.15 Curragh)
