Who To Follow On Day Two Of The Irish Champions Weekend

Horse To Follow - Winter Power

The Group One Flying Five Stakes over five furlongs looks like an English domination job, with the top of the market flooded with UK sprinters.

With that in mind we have sided with the Tim Easterby trained Winter Power who holds the best form in the race and now just needs to prove she can do the business away from York.

Winter Power has been a superstar for the yard over the last few seasons, really coming to life at the back end of last term when landing a quick-fire double at Ayr on Newmarket.

She picked up from where she left off this term on her seasonal debut when bolting up in the Listed Westow Stakes over 5f at York.

Thrown straight into the deep end next time out she was did too much early on in the Group One King's Stands Stakes and ultimately faded late on.

Looking to bounce back to form she headed back to York over the Nunthorpe course and distance in the Listed City Walls takes and again gave a dominant performance to win well.

Five furlongs at York seems to be her playground and she proved that when giving the performance of her life to land the Group One feature at the Ebor meeting.

If running to the same ability she is the one to beat.

Trainer To Follow - Aidan O'Brien

The master Ballydoyle trainer Aidan O'Brien is set for a big day on the second day of the Irish Champions weekend with somelive chances across the card.

His best chance of a winner across the afternoon comes from his superstar juvenile Point Lonsdale who is looking to extend his unbeaten run.

Other strong runners for the Ballydoyle yard are Love in the Group Two Blanford Stakes dropping back in trip and grade and Lough Derg in the lucky last going into handicap company.

Jockey To Follow - Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore has had a successful time of things at Doncaster and now over in Ireland will be looking to round off a fine week.

He has some live chances across the day with his big player being Point Lonsdale being the 4/7 favourite to land the National Stakes.

Other nice chances for Moore include Love in the Blandford Stakes, Prettiest in the Moyglare Stud Stakes and Hightimeyouwon for Dermot Weld.

Moore heads into the Sunday running at a strike rate of 24%, winning eight of his 33 rides across two weeks which is a remarkable record.
