G3 – 2400m – Turf



Most of his runs have been in handicaps, with solid efforts in his three starts this season without managing a win. Only beaten by a rival getting lots of weight from him last time.



Has had problems and has only had five career starts but that includes a 1600m G2 win at The Curragh in 2019. A very encouraging return last month after a 651-day absence.


Leo de Fury

His supporters will hope that he can recapture the form that saw him surge from the back to win a 2100m G2 at The Curragh last year. Needs to prove himself at this trip.



Expensive to follow having been beaten in all 15 starts since winning on his career debut. Recent efforts at G2 and G3 level are not encouraging.


Thunder Kiss

A strong charge from the back saw her win a G3 over this trip at Cork in June. Has run perfectly well in two other G3’s since and is versatile in terms of surface conditions.



Her career highlight came last time when she kept responding to pressure to narrowly win a Listed event over this trip at York. Lightly raced, she may still be capable of better.



From a stable with an excellent record in this. Came from last to first to win at Gowran Park in June but never looked like winning a G3 at The Curragh last time.



Has won 2000m G3’s at The Curragh on two of his last three starts, and in between he finished fourth in the G1 Irish Derby. Chance, especially on a slow surface.


Sir Lamorak

Made no impact in a G1 on very slow ground at Longchamp last time. Much better when almost winning a Royal Ascot handicap over this trip, and on fast ground.
