Tips and previews: Saturday on the Curragh
1.50pm: Foran Equine Irish EBF Auction Maiden
An auction maiden to kick off the card. Latin Eye is worth favored. He ran to a good level on debut. The drop again in ride day after today won’t be perfect. His high draw could show an advantage. Another drawn excessive is Value Chain. He put up a promising display on debut while second on debut at Naas. That race is operating out pretty properly. Whether the next day’s quicker ground will match stays to be visible. If he proves just as effective, it’d be no wonder to see him make all up to the stands rail.
Selection: Value Chain 7/2
2.25pm: Heritage Hotel & Spa Handicap
Barend Boy put up a solid overall performance at Naas ultimate Sunday. That run advised that the following day’s experience of six furlongs may be his premiere. That race turned into a 3-yr-old handiest handicap. Tomorrow’s opposition is more uncovered. He gets to run off the same handicap mark, and have to pass close if repeating the shape. Arcanears is exceedingly unexposed. An excessive draw intended he had no hazard in Naas ultimate time. An improvement on his Navan comeback would see him bang in the blend.
Selection: Barend Boy 20/1
3 pm: Weatherbys Ireland Greenlands Stakes (Group 2)
Speak In Colours, and Mr Lupton set the standard on rankings. Both have respectable facts sparkling too, and that they must be concerned in the finish. A risk is taken on Urban Beat. He has traveled rather nicely in each begins this season. He may additionally have lacked for fitness in Navan, however, made no mistake in Naas. There is a hazard he idled in the front that day. The 2d gave the form a good improve remaining weekend. Expect Shane Foley to deliver him as overdue as feasible. Another step up from this enhancing sort would not wonder.
Selection: Urban Beat eleven/2
3.35pm: Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas
A race to get pleasure from. Magna Grecia (MG) bids to comply with up his 2000 Guineas triumph. Too Darn Hot (TDH), the short-priced ante publish favorite, didn’t make that gig. MG turned into very magnificent at Newmarket but may additionally be the beneficiary of some form of bias. TDH made his belated seasonal bow inside the Dante. He suffered a first career defeat. Going down narrowly to Telecaster, over an extended 10 furlongs, may additionally look like a very good run when this season is done and dusted. TDH changed into the incredible ultimate season. It’s feasible that MG has stepped forward past him; however I’d be amazed.
Selection: Too Darn Hot 6/4
4.10pm: Lanwades Stud Stakes (Group 2)
A difficult race, further complex through the lack of an obvious pacemaker. One Master, and I Can Fly set the usual. One Master has a penalty to shoulder. I Can Fly lacks consistency, though her Lockinge run in all likelihood wasn’t that bad. Red Tea embarrassed the handicapper last time. This is a great deal tougher.
Selection: One Master 3/1
4.45pm: FBD Hotels & Resorts Handicap
Lethal Power installed a strong shift on his seasonal comeback. He should strip fitter tomorrow, and the step up in experience seems an effective too. Magnetic North become another to catch the eye on a comeback. He’s some distance from exposed however the draw might have been kinder.
Selection: Lethal Power 15/2
five.20pm: New Curragh Handicap
This looks an awesome heat, and a number of them should prove beforehand of the handicapper. Ferretti received a great race in Naas remaining weekend. A five-pound upward thrust ought to underestimate him. Sherkali looks to had been given a fair chance through the assessor too. A hazard is taken on Karasi. His comeback becomes complete of promise, and runners from the Halford backyard can often take an awesome leap forward for a pipe-opener.
