We have just 2 runners each day at the Curragh this weekend. Saturday 4pm ROMAN TURBO  (Ronan Whelan) Roman Turbo takes his chance in the Anglesey Stakes (GR3) and is well drawn in 6 of 7.  He has done well since his course and distance win on Derby weekend.  It will be interesting to see how he handles the step …
We had a great double last night.  Katiymann came back from a break to win the seven furlong handicap in Fairyhouse.  Defining Battle won his first handicap in Killarney.  He appreciated the step up in trip and is an exciting prospect.

Just two runners this evening at Leopardstown.   6.50  BALEFIRE  (Shane Foley) Balefire has been really consistent this season and he has run well in Leopardstown in the past.  It is a surprisingly small field but at the same time it is really competitive.  Our horse is solid at this level and is taking his racing really well.  A reproduction …

We ran Massif Central in the mile and a half handicap and the slow early pace didn’t help him, but I thought he ran a very creditable race and I have no …
The Derby Festival gets underway at The Curragh later today and the place looks great and hopefully the crowds will come. The weather looks settled and we are there tonight with Massif Central in the premier handicap and it’s great to see that all the main contenders have stood their ground for Saturday’s Derby. I hope to run 7 horses …
