We’re off to Ireland for this weekend’s horse racing tip. The Curragh Sprint Stakes is a Listed race run over 6-furlongs and, despite the race attracting 10-runners, there looks to be a standout bet in the race.
Call Of The Jungle won last time, but this 73-rated filly needs to take another massive step up the ladder to win this. She’s joined by five other 3-years-olds but, while Romantic Proposal, Deirdra, and Schroders Mistake have less to find, their official ratings suggest they also won’t be troubling some of the better horses.
Pronouncement should enjoy coming back to 6-furlongs after looking a non-stayer over 7-furlongs last time, but a line through Millisle suggests she needs to make further improvement. But Pronouncement did finish over 2-lengths in front of the slightly higher-rated Lady Penelope when they finished second and third behind Millisle and they meet on the same terms here.
Spanish Tenor and Nordic Passage are rated just 90 and 95 and it will be a shock if either can beat the quartet of higher-rated older horses.
The 8-year-old Downforce hasn’t won for 11 races and age may be catching up with this once high-class sprinter. He would only be of interest if the ground rode soft or worse, and he’s been beaten by both the market leaders this season. Southern Horse is another to have been beaten by the main market rivals, losing to Speak In Colours last season and to Make A Challenge this season.
Make A Challenge finished behind Speak In Colours earlier this season, but it’s worth noting that he was sent-off as favourite that day. That could suggest he didn’t give his true running and, he ran better when second behind A’Ali back over course and distance last time. He’s expected to go close, but the form of the Denis Hogan stable is a worry.
The Joseph O’Brien stable is in better form, which is why Speak In Colours is our Curragh Stakes tip. He has a terrific record at the Curragh, where he has won four times over course and distance. He is officially rated 1lb behind Make A Challenge and must give him 2lb, but he won decisively last time they met and is fancied to confirm the form.
