Curragh Racing Tips for Irish 1000 Guineas Day: Four Picks for a Lucky 15
It Is Irish 1000 Guineas day at the Curragh and I have 4 selections including a couple of strong fancies in the feature races that would make up a nice lucky 15 tip.
Yesterday saw Shishkin add his name to the list of great Irish 2000 Guineas winners with a scintillating display, now it’s the girls turn to show off their class.
The 5.10 race is a fillies maiden race over the 1m2f distance. The market appears to be wide open here and I think SNOW 7/1 EW is a great E/W bet. Aiden O’Brien trains this filly and I’m expecting her to improve from her 2-year-old form now stepping up in distance. Aiden has started this season as well as any other season and 7/1 for their first string in a race like this is good enough for me.
The 6.45 race is a Group 3 race over the 7f distance. I like LANCASTER HOUSE 11/8 NAP here for the Aiden O’Brien team. Lancaster Horse won all three of his first career starts before a poor run on his final start campaign in which there was excuses for. The break will have done the horse the world of good and this trip should be no bother. I am expecting a good season for Lancaster House and that can start with a win here.
The Irish 1000 Guineas is easily the most exciting race of the day and Aiden O’Brien sends two of his best fillies in So Wonderful and Peaceful. It is a big day for Donnacha O’Brien who saddles the unbeaten Fancy Blue who is quietly fancied by many.
For me, it’s all about ALBIGNA 2/1 NB here. The horse easily has the best 2-year-old form on offer and after another winter on her back she is destined to go on to big things this season. Harrington has started the season very strongly and jockey Shane Foley is absolutely buzzing about this filly. I think she’ll be the best miler either side of the Irish Sea this season and she could well follow success similar to the stable star Alpha Centuria. Get on.
The 7.45 race is a Group 2 for the fillies and mares over the 1m distance. Magic Wand is the 5/6fav here and I’m happy to take her on at the prices.
The one for me is SILK FOREST 4/1. This horse has impressed me and won well at Naas last time out. I think there is room for even more improvement for this horse and she knows how to win. Magic Wand sets a fair standard but this trip is certainly on the short side for her.
