Who To Follow At The Curragh On Friday - 27/08/21

Horse To Follow - Sacred Bridge

The final Group Three event of the afternoon comes over six furlongs and the horse we are siding with the Ger Lyons trained Sacred Bridge.

The two year old daughter of Bated Breath is a 12/1 shot for the black type event having landed all three of her events to date and if coming over for this race she will be shorter, running for top connections.

Starting off her career at Naas in June he was a smart winner and she then backed it up at Tipperary taking a Listed winner on similar company.

Last time out she stepped forward again to land the expensive Ballyhane Stakes, getting up in the final stages of the six furlong contest.

She is unbeaten and this Group Three looks the next logical step forward.

Trainer To Follow - Joseph O'Brien

Joseph O'Brien is a trainer that has been in decent form of late and at The Curragh on Friday has some lovely chances in some of the big races.

His best chance of the day looks to be the smart filly Albula in the Group Three Flame Of Tara Stakes over a mile, with her looking to land back to back races.

Other nice runners for the handler are Lovely Esteem, I Siyou Baby, My Generation and So I Told You in the Snow Fairy Fillies' Stakes and Ultramarine and Pennine Hills in the final Group Three of the day.

O'Brien also has some big chances in the Irish Cambridgeshire handicap with the favourite Toshizou and Music To My Ears.

Jockey To Follow - Colin Keane

Finally, the jockey to follow across the meeting on Friday is the champion jockey Colin Keane, who has some very lively chances.

In the first race of the day he sits on Enthrallment on debut and then partners Acanella in the Group Three Snow Fairy Fillies' Stakes.

His best chance of the day comes in the Round Tower Stakes with the unbeaten Sacred Bridge looking to land the fourth straight race of her career.

Keane heads into the meeting in fine fettle currently running at a strike rate of 20% for the last two weeks, managing 12 winners from 59 runners.
