One Trainer, Jockey And Horse To Follow On Saturday

Horse To Follow - Shinkansen

The first selection of the day from us on Saturday at The Curragh is Shinkansen for Donnacha O'Brien in the six furlongs Maiden.

The two year old son of Caravaggio was bought for €110,000 and made his debut at Cork on yielding ground and managed to give a good account of himself when staying on well to finish fifth.

On Saturday he is getting much quicker ground and should be a lot more streetwise to the task at hand getting experience from his debut run.

This is Caravaggio's first season as a sire and if like some of his other offsprings all ready this season, this lad could be very smart.

Trainer To Follow - Aidan O'Brien

Leading Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien has made a quick start to the season in Ireland and with plenty of his big guns yet to be played, he looks to have some more nice chances at The Curragh on Saturday.

One of his stand out runners across the day seems to be Cadamosto, who was a nice winner at Dundalk last week and turns around quickly for his turf debut.

Other big chances on the day for the Ballydoyle Maestro include Broome, who is a short price in the Group Three Alleged Stakes and in the Gladness Stakes he has the favourite with Lancaster House.

O'Brien has a superb record with his runners at The Curragh over the last 12 months with managing to get 34 winners and 32 places from his 164 runners, which see him running at a strike rate of close to 20%.

Jockey To Follow - Ben Coen

Finally, the jockey to follow at The Curragh on Saturday is Ben Coen, who may not be well known to many but he is set up to have a big season riding for Johnny Murtagh.

Coen's big chance of a winner tomorrow comes in the Group Three Gladness Stakes over 7f with Know It All for Qatar Racing dropping back in class for her seasonal debut.

The young rider has been in decent form of late with two winners in his last 12 rides which sees him pose a strike rate of 16.67% heading into the meeting.
