Curragh - April 09 2022
Curragh 12:55
Leigh Roche

Forceful Speed

J: Leigh Roche
T: Adrian Murray
Age: 2
Weight: 9-7
Days: 15

The first selection of the day at the Curragh on Sunday comes in the Irish Maiden over six furlongs and Forceful Speed for Adrian Murray could be tough to beat if building on his debut.

Costing 260,000gns as a yearling the son of New Bay was a head second on debut over five furlongs here in March and now going up a furlong has to be feared.

Best form in the field, albeit a lot of them haven't run.


Trainer To Follow - Dermot Weld

Dermot Weld is one of the most experienced trainers in the game and on Sunday has some live chances that could see him in the winners enclosure.

In the Group Three Gladness Stakes he fields 14/1 chance Emilie Gray who looks overpriced in the market and has back form at 7f that makes her interesting.

In the six furlong handicap he has a big chance with Hightimeyouwon who has some serious form in this big fielded handicaps over both 7f and 6f and off a decent mark of 92.

Finally, in the maiden over 1m2f he gives a debut to Hazra for Aga Khan who is well bred daughter of Golden Horn and could be interesting.

Jockey To Follow - Leigh Roche

Irishman Leigh Roche has some lovely rides for Ammo Racing on Sunday with the owners presence in Ireland starting to be feared.

In the first race of the day he rides Drunk In Love who was a fair fourth at Dundalk on debut at the start of April and now a week later should be better on turf.

In the second maiden of the afternoon Forceful Speed looks the one to beat having been second on debut at the Curragh iver 5f and now stepping up in trip should improve again.

Another nice ride for Roche is El Magnifique who has figures of 322 and has every chance of breaking his duck here.
