Curragh’s NAP: INNISFREE | 6:00pm Fitzdares Royal Whip Stakes (Group 3) | Dom’s Pick
Aidan O’Brien’s son of Galileo makes his long-awaited return to the track after missing his three-year-old campaign through injury.
He was last seen chasing home subsequent 2,000 Guineas winner Kameko in the Group 1 Vertem Futurity Trophy Stakes at Newcastle in November 2019, with useful rivals such as Mogul and Kinross in behind.
The step-up in trip, given his pedigree, is sure to suit and he is in the capable hands of Seamie Heffernan in County Kildare, looking to hold enough class to lay to rest any concerns over his race fitness.
NB: PRINCESS ZOE | 7:00pm Comer Group International Irish St Leger Trial Stakes (Group 3)
After a brilliant second in the Ascot Gold Cup, Tony Mullins’s mare looks to hold huge claims now down in class and trip here.
She’s a former course winner and despite a winless 2021 thus far, has improved with every race and with weight in her favour from a number of her market rivals, she may prove too strong in the feature.
Wordsworth has some useful top-level form this campaign and may be the one to chase the selection home.
