WK 4. THE CURRAGH,THE IRISH 2K & 1K Guineas.

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

The year after the Irish 2000 Guineas was introduced to the schedule, fillies were given an opportunity to shine in the Irish 1000 Guineas.

Like the British equivalent of that fabled Classic, only three-year-olds are allowed to enter the Irish 1000 Guineas, and only the finest filly in the field will be strong enough to come out on top
.....................................

The Curragh Racecourse -- usually referred to as simply the Curragh -- is one of Ireland's most important Thoroughbred racecourses. It is situated on the Curragh plain in County Kildare, between the towns of Newbridge and Kildare.

Irish 2,000 Guineas: Mac Swiney wins from stablemate Poetic Flare at The Curragh

Mac Swiney won the Irish 2,000 Guineas at The Curragh, seeing off the strong challenge of stablemate Poetic Flare.

It was a one-two for Irish trainer Jim Bolger, who had never previously won the Grade One race.

For jockey Rory Cleary it was by far the biggest win of his career.

Poetic Flare was already running in his third Classic of the season, having won the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket before finishing only sixth in the French version just six days ago.

Derby hope Mac Swiney, a Group One winner at two, had disappointed on his return to action in the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial, but was subsequently found to be suffering from a nasal discharge.

The race was run in a heavy rain shower and Cleary set out to make all on Mac Swiney and his rivals dropped away one by one.

Only Poetic Flare put up a challenge and Kevin Manning looked to be travelling marginally better.

However, just when Manning began to ask his mount for everything, Poetic Flare hung across the track slightly, eventually being beaten a short head in the 100th running of the Classic.

Van Gogh stayed on to finish third, with pre-race favourite Lucky Vega fourth.

"I can't believe it. I was quite nervous about having to ride him as he is a special horse to get a ride on," said winning jockey Cleary.

"He stayed so well - it was on the wet side, which helped, and the further we went the better he travelled.

"My horse really stuck his head out for me and it made it easy for me."

Irish 1000 Guineas

BETTING FORECAST 15/8 Pretty Gorgeous, 5/2 Joan Of Arc, 5/1 Fev Rover, 6/1 Miss Amulet, 8/1 No Speak Alexander, 16/1 Zaffy's Pride, 20/1 Empress Josephine, 25/1 Fantasy Lady, Sense Of Style, Thinking Of You, 100/1 Belle Image, Friendly, Sweet Gardenia, 200/1 Sziget.

VERDICT
Third in the Newmarket equivalent FEV ROVER gets the vote. She won on very soft ground on the first of two French raids last season.
COMMENTS
Belle Image... Safely held by No Speak Alexander on Athasi Stakes running over 7f at this venue
Empress Josephine... Improved from Leopardstown run when second to Gowran, others have much stronger claims
Fantasy Lady ...Ran on too late to land a blow when fifth behind Joan Of Arc at Leopardstown two weeks ago
Fev Rover... Third in 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket, acted well on soft ground at two, leading chance
Friendly... Runner-up in maidens on three occasions, supporting-role on the agenda here
Joan Of Arc... Maturing along the right lines to judge from Leopardstown victory, holds strong chance
Miss Amulet ...Won the Lowther with an ease but not certain to be suited by ground as testing as this
No Speak Alexander ...Will have no problem with testing ground, course Group 3 winner over 7f on seasonal debut
Pretty Gorgeous Group 1... juvenile winner on soft ground, very strong credentials despite lack of prep-run
Sense Of Style ...In front of Joan Of Arc on seasonal debut, that form comprehensively reversed on latest
Sweet Gardenia... Sixth here in Athasi Stakes dominated by No Speak Alexander and Zaffy's Pride, well held
Sziget... Naas maiden winner at two, behind Belle Image at Killarney, faces immense challenge
Thinking Of You... Stablemate of Pretty Gorgeous, unlikely to reverse Leopardstown form with Joan Of Arc
Zaffy's Pride... Has shown consistent form, beat all bar stablemate No Speak Alexander in 7f Athasi Stakes
