Power Under Me

Days: 15

Power Under Me appears a solid contender for the Listed Waterford Testimonial Stakes for the Ger Lyons and Colin Keane pairing who won this race in 2018.

The son of Mehmas will appreciate drying ground whilst he is also one of the lesser exposed runners in the race having had just 6 career starts.

A line can somewhat be drawn through his most recent run given the runner got upset in the stalls and never really recovered from that ordeal during the race.

Prior to that effort he had placed 3 times at Group 3 and Group 2 level and now drops back down to listed company to be competitive.

Should bounce back today and this looks a more than attainable affair for a horse of his standards.


Trainer To Follow - Willie Mullins

Willie Mullins is the trainer to follow at this particular meeting of the Curragh, specifically for the Ceaserwitch Handicap at 15:05, a race he targets each season.

Race followers should be eager to follow the exploits of Mullins, particularly as the jumps season just starts getting into gear, despite his runners racing outside of that sphere.

Mullins enters 5 runners for the handicap which he has won 3 times in the last 6 years; holding strong claims with each entrant for bettering that impressive statistic.

Jockey To Follow - Colin Keane

There's no real standout jockey on the day expected to run up a multitude of winners in these wide open contests however Colin Keane is always one to keep an eye on in this sphere.

The current holding Irish flat champion jockey has a strong booking of rides throughout the day, including on board listed race favourite Power Under Me for usual boss Ger Lyons.

Pretty Boy Floyd, Azallya and Secret Road are his susbequent three rides on the day and fair cases can be made for that trio at landing significant blows in their own affairs.
