Priceys Preview of the Ballydoyle runners on Sunday at Cork & Chantilly


Chantilly

3.05 Prix de Diane Longines (Group 1) - 1m 2f 110y

Happily - R Moore Horse Profile - Jockey Colours
Dual Group 1 winner in 2017 including here in the Jean-Luc Lagardere. Fair runs in both the English and Irish Guineas when placed, but looked a touch outpaced on each occasion. Ready for this increased stamina test and no surprise to see her bang there at the finish.

Cork

2.20 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden - 7f

Mohawk - D O'Brien Horse Profile - Jockey Colours
Galileo colt who made his debut at the Curragh last week, finishing a promising fifth over this trip. Showed his inexperience that day before running on and should be much sharper here; shouldn't be far away.

Peach Tree - S Heffernan Horse Profile - Jockey Colours
Another by Galileo and a sister to Flattering. Plenty of 2yo winners in the pedigree, though mainly over sprint trips. The yards runners usually need their first outing though could be one to note.

3.50 Munster Oaks Stakes (Group 3) - 1m 4f

Flattering - S Heffernan Horse Profile - Jockey Colours
Maiden win at Cork this spring before a fair third in the Lingfield Oaks Trial. Far from disgraced in the Oaks a fortnight ago, although didn't appear to fully see out this trip, albeit at the top level. These calmer waters will help and is a key player if her stamina holds out.

Sizzling - W Lordan Horse Profile - Jockey Colours
Just one win in thirteen starts though has been placed at Group 3 and Listed level. Failed to fire in three runs this spring before returning to form at the Curragh last week, keeping on for third over 10f. Worth a try at this trip but looks exposed and needs a clear personal best.

Easter Lily - M Hussey Horse Profile - Jockey Colours
Cut little ice in four runs to date in 2018 and has just one success to her name, a Leopardstown maiden last summer. 1L behind Sizzling last week and hard to be confident that she's good enough to win here.

4.50 Sean Barrett Bloodstock Insurance Maiden - 1m 2f 30y

Victory Salute - D O'Brien  Horse Profile - Jockey Colours
Galileo colt who made a promising impression on debut at Leopardstown last month, running on to take fourth over this trip. Given how the yards runners usually improve from their first run he is likely to be much sharper today and must go close; Tongue-tie on.
