25 runners to line up in 100,000 euro Tote Irish Cambridgeshire this Sunday
Recent listed race winner Algonquin will bid to extend his winning run to five-in-a-row in Sunday’s Tote Irish Cambridgeshire for Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning at the Curragh.
The three-year-old won his maiden at Dundalk last season and has kept up the winning formula since starting this season with victory at the Curragh back in June and wins at Naas and Killarney in the Vincent O’Brien Ruby Stakes followed making him a leading contender for this weekend’s feature race.
Ger Lyons has a strong team of five going forward for the €100,000 contest and the County Meath-based trainer will run Brendan Brackan, Lat Hawill, Piri Wango, Chopin and Third Dimension, while Mick Halford is responsible for two horses prominent in the betting with three-time Curragh winner Hasanour joined in the 25-runner field by stable companion Portage, a winner at Ascot last time out.
Among three David Wachman-trained runners is impressive Galway winner Hint Of A Tint and topping the weights along with Brendan Brackan and Hasanour is Dermot Weld’s Stuccodor.
Weld will run the high class filly Brooch in the Group 3 Dance Design Stakes where she’ll face eight-rivals including Jessica Harrington’s Bocca Baciata and Willie McCreery’s Devonshire.
Aidan O’Brien runs both Easter and Outstanding in the Dance Design Stakes which see’s My Titania line up for John Oxx and Stellar Glow for Jim Bolger, while Akira and Dragon Fei complete the line up.
Last weekend’s course and distance debut winner Smash Williams will make a quick reappearance for Bolger and Manning in an attempt to compliment the six-and-a-half length maiden win with victory in the Group 3 Round Tower Stakes.
Seven-runners are due to post for this one with big priced Naas winner Redstaroverchina an interesting runner for Eddie Lynam.
Aidan O’Brien is responsible for three of the 13 declared in the listed Flame Of Tara Stakes with much of the attention surrounding How High The Moon who is a full-sister to Group 1 winner Diamondsandrubies and made a winning debut three-weeks ago.
