Cappella set for Curragh

LOOKING ahead to the weekend action and Cappella Sansevero is a colt I'll be looking forward to seeing again and I think we will see him return to winning ways on this occasion.

Bringing him back quickly to the Curragh after Royal Ascot didn't work out but when finishing third behind Dick Whittington and Kool Kompany in the Phoenix Stakes, he showed more of what he was really about.

There's no doubt he is a nice ground horse, which he didn't get on that occasion, but by the looks of things so far this week he will get good ground at the Curragh on Sunday.

Elsewhere, it will be interesting to see Afternoon Sunlight in the Group Three Dance Design Stakes on the same card.

She is a daughter of Sea The Stars and is trained by Dermot Weld (pictured) who has done well this season. She was very unlucky to be collared by Parish Hall last time out and she lost very little in that defeat.

Afternoon Sunlight will prove a tough filly to beat, and hopefully she can prove to be another stakes winner for her sire.

There is also a listed contest on Sunday in which Jessica Harrington's Jack Naylor certainly sets the standard having won her last two race.

Despite having to concede weight to all rivals, she should complete the hat-trick.
