Selections

3:30 – Irish Stallions Farms EBF Cork Stakes (Listed Race)

She is likely to be a prohibitive price, but this looks to be a very good starting point for the campaign for TENEBRISM. She won on debut at Naas on Soft ground in 2021, so the deeper conditions shouldn’t pose any real concerns and despite the 5lb penalty on her back for her Group 1 win at Deauville last summer, she should still have too much for her 8 rivals. Given her pedigree and her impressive CV, it is interesting to see that Aiden O’Brien and the team at Ballydoyle are persisting with her as a 4-year-old. Clearly, she has much bigger target than this, but on these terms, she should still be able to pick up this €25,000 prize. Of the others, the 3-year-olds Wave Machine and Wadao look the most interesting to chase her home with their weight for age allowance a big help in these conditions.


4:05 – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden

Sturlasson is the only runner with any form of note and his 2nd placed finish behind Bucanero Fuerte at the Curragh last month sets a fair standard. However, he will need to improve if ALABAMA shows the ability on the track that the rumour mill has labelled him with. By No Nay Never, he is a half-brother to Sioux Nation and has a very strong pedigree to suggest that he could be an above average Juvenile. His Dam and Grand-Dam both won on ground with Soft in the going description so his breeding suggests he should handle it, tough the small field is likely to mean this race doesn’t turn into a stamina test anyway.
