On Friday Irish trainer Michael O'Callaghan sends just one runner over to England to race at Newmarket and when sending his runners across the Irish Sea he has seen huge success, which is why it is worth taking notice of.

This trainer has a strike rate of 12% when bringing his horses over to the Britain from Ireland landing 16 winners from his 138 runners.

Crispy Cat is a very consistent horse this season winning on debut at Cork in April and then stepping up to Listed company when a good second to dual Group One winner Blackbeard.

Second again when next seen at Sandown behind Maria Branwell, he then went to Royal Ascot and in a race he arguably should of won he had to settle for third when cut off in the Group Two Norfolk Stakes.

He ran no race next time out in the Group Two Railway Stakes but next time out got back to form when not beaten too far in the Group Two Richmond Stakes at Goodwood.

Back at 5f last time out he was a superb third behind Trillium and Group One prix de l'Abbaye winner The Platinum Queen and that sets the form standard in this race.
