With four Group 1 contests, the second day of the Irish Champions Weekend is shaping up to be an absolute cracker.
The slickest sprinters in the game are set to tackle the Flying Five Stakes at 2.55pm, the leading two-year-old fillies go to post at 3.30pm in the Moyglare Stud Stakes, Point Lonsdale will attempt to continue his unbeatable form at 4.05pm in the Vincent O’Brien National Stake before the final Classic of the Irish season, the St Leger, at 4.40pm.
Search For A Song has won the last two St Legers although the likes of Twilight Payment and Sonnyboyliston will provide plenty of competition for the hat-trick seeker.

Today’s Curragh Tips
13:45: HIGHTIMEYOUWON has improved with each run this year and seems sure to go well again, so he looks to have as good a chance as any.
14:20: LOVE’s efforts overall this summer suggest she’s perhaps not quite the filly she was in 2020, but she’s clearly still capable of very smart form and this looks a good opportunity with her sights lowered.
14:55: This is GLASS SLIPPERS time of year and the classy mare can win this Group 1 for the second season running following a pleasing comeback at Goodwood.
15:30: HOMELESS SONGS was comfortably on top of dual subsequent stakes winner Agartha in a Leopardstown maiden on her debut in July, so with significant improvement on the cards, she looks the type to make her mark in this much higher grade.
16:05: POINT LONSDALE reaffirmed his status as one of the best juveniles seen out so far this year with a decidedly smart performance in the Futurity Stakes over this C&D and can provide Aidan O’Brien with a 12th win in this.
16:40: A fiercely competitive St Leger in which the narrow vote goes to SONNYBOYLISTON, who is less exposed than most and arrives on the back of an improved showing when winning the Ebor.
17:15: DELMONA has been performing with credit in better company so looks to have been found a very good opportunity to get back to winning ways here.
17:45: Ultra-competitive stuff and it may pay to side with Aidan O’Brien’s LOUGH DERG. He shaped better than his finishing position would suggest in a Group 2 over C&D when last seen in June and it would come as no surprise to see him make his mark now handicapping.
