TRIPLE GROUP RACE ACTION FROM THE CURRAGH: SHAMROCK looks ahead to the three Group races on Saturday’s Irish Oaks card at the Curragh.
Triple Group action from the Curragh and Caravaggio bidding to maintain his unbeaten record in the July Stakes at Newmarket. What a day !!
I’m staying at home for the Group race action from the Curragh.
4:50 Jebel Ali Silver Jubilee Anglesey Stakes (Group 3) (2yo, Class 1, 6f 63y, 5 runners)
Jessica Harrington’s Brother Bear brings the best form to the table. He started off with wins at Leopardstown and here at the Curragh in the Marble Hill Stakes.
He was then sent off favourite for the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and ran with great credit finishing a close-up fourth to Rajasinghe. Dropping back to Group 3 level today should see him resume his winning ways.
Theobald looked good when making a winning debut at Leopardstown but it came over a mile and he was staying on strongly so it’s surprising to see him drop back to this trip.
5:20 Friarstown Stud Sapphire Stakes (Group 2) (3yo+, Class 1, 5f, 6 runners)
Marsha should justify short priced favouritism and land this for Sir Mark Prescott. She is another beaten Royal Ascot favourite but again ran with credit in the King’s Stand Stakes when finishing third Lady Aurelia. She’s not going to bump into one as speedy as that one today – that’s for sure.
5:55 Darley Irish Oaks (Fillies’ Group 1) (3yo, Class 1, 1m 4f, 10 runners)
Enable will surely go back to back after her demolition job in the Oaks at Epsom. She trounced Rhododendron by five lengths that day with six lengths back to the third Alluringly who is back for another crack today. The scary thing about Enable is she is lightly raced and there’s every chance she can improve further.
NAP: Brother Bear (4.50 Curragh)
NEXT BEST: Marsha (5.20 Curragh)
TREBLE: Above two in a BETDAQ MULTIPLES treble with ENABLE (5.55 Curragh)
