Pricey's Previews for the Ballydoyle runners at The Curragh Today.


Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden - 7f

Threeandforupence - R Moore 

War Front colt who's related to smart Group 1 winning stablemates Brave Anna and Hit It A Bomb. Holds a Dewhurst entry and gets Ryan Moore on board so must be respected on debut.


Zabriskie - S Heffernan 

750,000 Euro Frankel colt and closely related to Arc winner, Bago. Worth noting in the betting as he could be a very smart prospect.


Hunting Horn - D O'Brien 

Camelot colt and a half sister to High Chaparral. Suspicion is he wont be quite as forward as his stablemates at the top of the market but one to keep an eye on.


Spanish Point - W Lordan 

Another Frankle colt and cost 1,300,000gns as a yearling. Appears to be the outsider of the Ballydoyle runners but wouldn't be a big shock if he were to run well on debut.


2.10 Galileo Irish EBF Futurity Stakes (Group 2) - 7f

Rostropovich - R Moore 

Gowran Park maiden winner over this trip two starts ago but couldn't land a blow in a Naas rated race last time out. Needs to show a step forward here but not ruled out after just three starts; tongue-tie on.


Berkeley Square - S Heffernan 

One win in for starts to date and well beaten at Group 3 level last time out having made the running. Work to do to reverse the form with market leader Theobold on that evidence.


Coat Of Arms - D O'Brien 

Still a maiden after three starts but only narrowly denied last time out at Leopardstown over a mile. Drop back to 7f should be fine though he does appear the outsider of the Ballydoyle trio on all known form.


2.45 Qatar Racing And Equestrian Club Curragh Stakes (Group 3) - 5f

Declarationofpeace - R Moore 

War Front colt who's been disappointing the last two starts. Finishing last when favourite for the Windsor Castle and beating just one rival home in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes seven days ago. This appears slightly easier and connections now try blinkers.


3.20 Breat Cancer Research Debutante Stakes (Group 2) - 7f

Happily - R Moore 

Impressive  5l winner of the Silver Flash Stakes last time out and Ryan Moore decides to stay loyal to her. Looks to have every chance in this stronger race on the way to even bigger targets. The main danger could be her stablemate. 


September - S Heffernan 

Winner of both starts to date and justified favouritism in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot when last seen in June, that form has been franked by the runner up and should give stablemate Happily most to think about here.  


Magical - D O'Brien 

Just got up to win a Cork maiden 10 days ago and now takes a large step up in class here. First start in pattern company and appears firm outsider of the Ballydoyle trio today.
