Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Sunday; US Army Ranger in the Curragh 17:35. Compare odds and bet.
Rather like yesterday, Sunday is fairly low-key, with the return to action of Found the highlight in the Listed Alleged Stakes at the Curragh.
Ryan Moore is over to take the ride and he hangs around to partner US Army Ranger (5:35) in the concluding maiden.
It is rare that I select an un-raced horse, but this well-bred son of Galileo has been on my radar for some time and I have awaited this debut with anticipation. Entered in the Dante, the Irish 2,000 Guineas and both the Epsom and Irish Derbies, he needs to be winning fairly soon if he is develop into a Classic contender and he could well be up to the task at the first time of asking.
Dermot Weld’s Dubawi colt Aasheq looks the obvious danger on paper.
