Curragh Sunday Preview - 21/07/2019

2:35 - Cool Vixen

Cool Vixen looks an exciting prospect for Jessica Harrington, after her exciting debut at Naas earlier this month.

The daughter of Dandy Man pulled clear of an Auction Maiden field in style at the beginning of this month and is ready to kick on again.

Has a penalty to carry but stable going really well of late, can easily pay the investment fee already with another victory here.

Big player.

3:10 - Garrus

The Friarstown Stud Sapphire Stakes over five furlongs looks heavily contested by a number of strong look candidates, but the one we have chosen to side with is the new Charlie Hills-trained Garrus.

The three-year-old began his season with two wins at Nottingham and at York before moving on from the now-retired Jeremy Noseda yard.

Hills picked him up and got a great tune out of him in the Coral Charge at Sandown under James Doyle and was unfortunate to not win.

Rise in grade no problem as he looks a group horse in the making, and should be in the mix.

3:45 - Move Swiftly

Move Swiftly was a real eyecatcher winning at Royal Ascot on her seasonal return in the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes.

One of the big winners for William Haggas and Daniel Tudhope, she takes her campaign to Ireland for the first time now up a furlong.

She has a tremendous strike-rate around many placed efforts - in fact she has never finished outside the top three in any of her eight outings.

Gives weight all round, but should be tough to beat.

4:20 - Baby Power

The Ticket Offers At Handicap is a big old field with twenty-four currently going to post, and despite looking like a mosaic and guesswork being the best way to pick your selection, we are happy to take a chance on Garry Caldwell's Baby Power.

The six-year-old mare is towards the bottom of the handicap, but has won two of her last three - including over course and distance from two starts back in a similar sort of line-up.

She can handle big fields well and this level, and has a useful claimer on board to shift a bit of weight.

Could certainly run into a place with a clear route from a low draw.

5:30 - Trossachs

Godolphin's Trossachs started his career off slowly, but arrives for the Curragh Summer Festival Handicap over the staying trip of two miles looking for an emphatic four-timer.

The three-year-old landed the hat-trick at Leopardstown last week and goes again quickly to try maintain his winning run.

He will be stepping up to this distance for the first time, but looks like it is exactly what he wants.
