Published on April 30, 2017 by Tim @ Betting Gods

The Mooresbridge Stakes (Monday 1 May, 3.55 @ Naas) is a Group-2 Race run over 10-furlongs, that has been won in recent years by top-class horses like Found, Fascinating Rock, Magician, Camelot, So You Think, and Fame And Glory.

8 of the last 10 winners were 4-year-olds

Only 1 winner had won last time out

Aidan O’Brien has trained 7 of the last 10 winners, including 6 of the last 7

5 of the last 7 winners went-off a 2/5 or less


Runner-By-Runner Guide

It’s hard not to like this admirable 8-year-old who has won a Listed Race and a Handicap on his last two starts. He’s now rated 112 after those wins, which suggests he’s well-worth his place in the line-up but, having fallen short in group company before, he still has 10lb to find with the favourite. 10-furlongs has also seemed to stretch his stamina in the past.

Jaqen H’Ghar

Won a handicap off 91 two runs ago, but was well-beaten off 91 last time. Has no real pretensions to be up to this class, but you can’t blame connections for trying to steal some prize-money in this 5-runner field.

Johannes Vermeer

Closed his two-year-old campaign with a win in a French Group-1 over a mile. Was then sent-off favourite for a Group-3 last season, in which he finished third behind two decent rivals. However, he hasn’t been seen again since. Officially has 13lb to find with stablemate Minding and, after a lengthy lay-off, he made need this run unless there’s plenty of money for him.

Minding

Last year’s Champion Filly has won 7 of the 9 Group-1 Races she’s run in, including when beating the boys in the QEII on her last start. She’s also won twice at this trip, and even the form of her third in the Irish Champion Stakes behind Almanzor and Found would be good enough to win this.

Moonlight Magic

The winner of last year’s Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial was one of the many Jim Bolger horses who suffered from illness last season and, though he’s expected to win a nice race or two this time around, he’ll probably need Minding to underperform to win here.


2017 Mooresbridge Stakes Summary

If Minding is as good as she was last season, then those connected with the O’Brien Stable will probably be bringing their money to the racecourse in wheelbarrows. O’Brien has such as good record in the race with this type of high-quality horse, that it is mighty hard to oppose her, and even odds of around 2/5 or better are probably on the generous side.
