Who To Follow On Sunday At Leopardstown

Horse To Follow - Patrick Sarsfield

The horse we believe it may pay to follow on Sunday is the Joseph O'Brien trained Patrick Sarsfield who is a four year old on the up.

The gelding is very unexposed for his age only racing four times and placing in all of those events, getting off the mark in fine style last time out at the Curragh.

In October the son of Australia won a 14 runner maiden but absolutely obliterated the field in doing so and improving will be very tough to beat on his handicap debut

Trainer To Follow - Jessica Harrington

Aidan O'Brien looks the obvious trainer to go with but with less horses running and some bold chances, Jessica Harrington should have some nice winners on Sunday.

The female dual purpose trainer has made a decent start to the season with 10 winners from 73 runners posing a strike rate of 13.7%.

Leopardstown has been a very happy hunting ground for the handler over years and she will be looking to add another group race to her roster with One Voice in the Blue Wind Stakes.

The filly has had three starts to date, looking very smart as a juvenile when finishing second on debut at Leopardstown before breaking her maiden tag next time out.

The three year old stepped up to this distance today in a Listed event Navan and finished a bold second on her seasonal debut and she is due to improve for that run with the yard going well so far this term.

Jockey To Follow - Killian Leonard

Killian Leonard is a jockey that not many of you will have heard of but on Sunday he holds three rides with all of them having big each way chances.

He has already gained a winner this season and he can add to that at Leopardstown especially with one of his rides Atlas in the first handicap of the day.

The seven year old is a course and distance winner at the track and made his seasonal return at Leopardstown over a mile finishing a decent fifth of 14.

Dropping back to seven furlongs is a positive and being on a very attractive handicap mark makes him very appealing having a run under his belt.
