Classy action at Curragh

We have the Group Two Debutante Stakes and the Group Two Futurity Stakes at the Curragh over the weekend and we are just starting to shape up into an important time of the season for two-year-olds.

In the Debutante Stakes, I'm really looking forward to seeing the Jim 
Bolger-trained filly Lucida, who runs in the Godolphin colours, and I think she could be definitely be a filly to follow after winning a listed race at Naas first time out.

Gleneagles looks like setting the standard in the Group Two Futurity Stakes, although it will be an interesting rematch between him and Ger Lyons' Convergence.

John Oxx runs the Tsui family's Streetcar To Stars in the Irish St Leger Trial and Aidan O'Brien is going to make sure it is a good trial as he runs last years Doncaster St Leger and this years Ascot Gold Cup winner Leading Light.

Our horse Streetcar To Stars 
(pictured) was a little disappointing at Leopardstown but slow ground was definitely an issue and hopefully the rain stays away from the Curragh which will suit him. It looks like a real informative St Leger trial.

Finally, in the Ebor, I have liked the look of Sir Mark Prescott's Pallasator for a while and since they have started to race up the middle at York, the draw has become less of an issue so I wouldn't be overly concerned that he is so wide and the Prescott horses are only getting going this season.
