It was a painful Saturday, which isn't a surprise with it being the hardest day of the week, but still, it was a poor day. Just Beautiful was the only return on the day with a small EW return.

Curragh 2:55 – Art Power 5/1 (1pt Bet365)

I've been wanting to back Art Power for a very long time for this race, but I couldn't find an Ante-post option for this race, so he's getting put up as my only selection for Sunday.

It's common knowledge that Art Power performs best in Ireland, especially at the Curragh where he is unbeaten in four visits to the track. In those four wins he has won two Group 3s and two Group 2s, so this is by far the toughest race of his career on Irish soil with this being a Group 1 and a proper Group 1 at that with the likes of Highfield Princess and Bradsell coming over, as well as the French raider, Bouttemont.

Based on form, this race should be between Highfield Princess and Bradsell who are tied in close from their recent runs which saw Bradsell with at Royal Ascot and then the pair of them finished 2nd and 3rd in the Nunthorpe just over two weeks ago. However, for some reason, Art Power just loves the Curragh and this would've been his main aim of the entire season. He was poor when I tipped him up at Deauville which saw him finish 5th/10, but like I've said this is his playing ground and it doesn't concern me that he didn't perform last time out on a different track, as he tends to do that everywhere other than the Curragh/Ireland these days. He does like to run from the front, and I don't mind if Oisin Murphy goes with those tactics in this race, as he stays further than the 5f, and he was taken on for the lead at the Curragh last time out, but he coped with that with ease, albeit in a weaker race. His best part of the run at the Curragh the time before last was the final furlong where he lengthened clear of the field.

I believe that the horses who went to the Nunthorpe will be in great condition, but Highfield Princes has been a busy mare this season and it might be taking it out of her now. Art Power had a rest from Deavuille so will be in prime condition for this and at the odds I think he is the play in this race.

    Won this last 2 years, soumillon driving.
    13-33 iresine

    Ganay win is best form of these but shitty price, one for a double/accumulator maybe.
    14-50 blue rose cen
    2-1 bet365 .. NAP.. 🏇.
    Bit unlucky in the Nassau at Goodwood not beaten far.
    French oaks winner in June and is 4/4 at longchamp.

    6-5 top 2 finish SKYBET
    20-80 stake
    German derby winner, is being aimed at big races in Australia later in the year.
    Arc winning jockey on board.
    Was entered for the Irish champion stakes today at the curragh but decided this may be easier maybe
    Feed the flame is a short price favourite hence the bulk of stake is on the place bet.
    Feed the flame is being aimed at the arc de triomphe so should win
    16-00 fang

    5-4 top 3 finish bet365 (single)

    Beaten by siam paragon who runs here last time out but 4 pounds better off today for a 2 length defeat and was returning from a break then and it was on the all weather track which fang doesn’t like.

    and where up and running what a run

  8. double carpet 8 months ago

    1.50 Big Gossey 20/1 ew 6 places

    We’ve had 50/1 & 33/1 winners in the past 2 years so anything can win.
    I’ve gone for Big Gossey as he was a decent 3rd lto but has been dropped 3lbs by the h’capper. The claimer jockey also keeps the ride which puts him 1lb below his last win and is drawn high which is usually the place to be at the curragh. He also won this race in 2021.

    2.25 Lumiere Rock 7/1 ew 4 places

    Araminta is the one to beat but for me LR represents better value and never runs a bad race. Her 2nd to Warm Heart in the Ribblesdale is arguably the best form in the race.

    2.55 Bradsell 11/4

    Think the Nunthorpe run will have him spot on today and he can confirm the Kings Stand form with Highfield Princess.
    Art Power loves it here (4-4) but he’s up against the big boys (and girls) today and may have to settle for a place.

    The next 4 races have short priced favs in them that should win but at least one will probably get turned over so I’ll just watch with interest.

    Only other bet for me is at Longchamp Blue Rose Cen at 15/8

    Try a couple in Ireland for interest 🇮🇪

    1-50 dandyville
    12-1 ew 7 places SKYBET.
    3-25 pearls and rubies
    25-1 ew extra 5 places.

    Apparently something was amiss last time out and based on his 2nd in the chesham at royal Ascot this looks over priced for this Aiden “interesting” O’Brien also ran .
    It’s 50-1 SP 3 places for the braver souls ⚡
    4-00 Henry Longfellow
    11-8 betting without city of troy (bet victor(

    Stable orders will dictate he won’t win but he looks better than the rest here
