Magnier's charge set for Wonderful' debut

FOLLOWING Ruler Of The World's win in Saturday's Epsom Derby, there was much chat again on the emphasis put on how Sue Magnier names the horses who run in her colours or those of the Magnier's Coolmore partners.

The first race at Fairyhouse this evening features a Ballydoyle newcomer with a big name to live up to, as Wonderfully makes her racecourse debut in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Fillies' Maiden.

By the sire of the moment Galileo, Wonderfully is a full sister to the stable's Mars, who represented connections very well at Epsom over the weekend, and you get the vibe that Wonderfully is well capable of taking this race.

David Wachman has his team in good order at the minute and a winner at Naas on Monday proved it.

General Brook can follow up at the second time of asking in the Follow Fairyhouse Twitter Maiden over seven furlongs.

He will face a newcomer from the John Oxx yard as well as some form horses trained by Dermot Weld and Kevin Prendergast, but his run when at a big price back in May suggests he'll strip better this time out.

The Ratoath Handicap divided at declaration time yesterday providing punters with an eight-race card to look forward to.

In the first division, recent winner The Black Devil can lead them home again for the father-and-son partnership of Gerry and Colin Keane, while in the second division, the Eddie Lynam-trained Armed Guard is the pick.
