Who to follow at the Curragh on Sunday

Horse To Follow - Downforce

The final Listed race of the day at the Irish track comes in the Waterford Testimonial Stakes over six furlongs and Downforce looks to have a huge chance in our opinion

The seven year old gelding is a lot more experienced than the majority of this field and heads into the contest in some superb form.

He is a previous course and distance winner and last time out at the same track and conditions he was a smart second in a Group Three contest and this looks easier stepping down in class.

Trainer To Follow - Aidan O'Brien

It may be obvious to suggest that Aidan O'Brien is worth following at meetings like this on his home soil but the Ballydoyle maestro has two nice runners that we like the look of.

The first is Precious Moments in the opener who looks the horse to beat dropping down in class.

Last time out he was outclassed in the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh but now back into a much easier race and also down in trip he has to be a front runner in the contest.

Ran to a good standard on his only run with cut in the ground and may appreciate it even softer and on his two runs over course and distance he has not finished out of the placings.

The other runner follows up in the next race of the day and Tango is a very exciting two year old for the master Ballydoyle trainer with the filly putting in a career best performance last time out when a smart fourth in the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes.

That is strong form heading back down to a Listed race and if handling the soft ground looks the horse to beat at a course she handles fairly well.

Jockey To Follow - Tom Madden

Three pound claimer Tom Madden is only booked for two rides during the eight race card and we believe in the feature Irish Cesarewitch Handicap that he has a big chance.

He sits on Rock De Baune for trainer John Kiely who has only raced three times in his short career being very consistent with two wins.

Last time out was his most impressive display when landing a 1 mile 6f contest on soft ground at Listowel and if handling the step up in trip should revel in the conditions.
