Lucky 15 betting tips for the horse racing action taking place at The Curragh on Sunday.
A relatively quiet Sunday in racing terms across England, thankfully there is plenty of high class action over in Ireland at The Curragh with a number of Group races taking place.
The first race on the card is a 19 runner maiden that contains plenty of well bred types, the pick of which has to be OL MAN RIVER (SP). Both sides of his pedigree are Group 1 winning horses an, as he cost €2.85million, connections will expect a solid performance before going on to much bigger things. Sacrificial is probably the best of the horses who have already had a run but the selection is potentially a classic colt and should win.
Moving on to the Listed Flame Of Tara Stakes and Jack Naylor looks likely to be well fancied after having won a Group contest last time out. Despite this solid form, he has a penalty to carry and could well struggle because of that. LEGATISSIMO (9/4 bet365) improved considerably on his second start and beat, the re-opposing, Together Forever by about 5 lengths. The David Wachman colt should continue to progress and could well be capable of winning this weak looking Listed contest.
The Group 3 Tower Stakes is the third leg of our Lucky 15 bet and WAR ENVOY (7/2 Ladbrokes) looks set to continue Aidan O'Brien's good form. The selection finished ahead of main danger Capella Sanservo over C&D and should be fresher thanks to a 64 day break. This looks like a match between these two with War Envoy likely to give his trainer a 4th win in the race.
The Dance Design Fillies Stakes looks a very tough and intriguing contest. Carla Bianca looks likely to be sent off favourite for Dermot Weld after winning three on the bounce, but this is another tough step-up and she is closely matched with Palace on form. Preference however is for PEARL OF AFRICA (6/1 bet365) who certainly has some decent form and finished third in this race a year ago. She has won at the Curragh before and should offer a bit of value in whats looks like a trappy affair.
