The Park stakes is a Group 3 for fillies that was won in 2014 by oaks heroine Qualify and Aidan O’Brien has multiple entries to try and add to his 3 wins in the last 5 years. Ryan Moore rides Sizzling who ran a cracker in the May Hill at Doncaster but I really like Mary Tudor who was staying on strongly behind Magical in the Debutante stakes at the Curragh last time out. Naas is a really stiff finish and it should suit her strong finishing style.
The Loughbrown stakes comprises only a small field but lots of big trainers are represented and James Fanshawe sends Return Ace over. Renneti had a near impossible task in that big handicap at Leopardstown recently, he ran a good race under top weight. The ground won’t be a problem for him and if he relaxes early on he could have too much for Wild Irish Rose.
The Rennaisance stakes sees the return to action of super mare Quiet Reflection. She should win this comfortably with her stable in such a rich vein of form, the worry is her last run was so poor. I am still sticking with her but I think the value bet is Only Mine who has won nicely on her last two starts, no problems with ground or track for her.
The Beresford stakes is a race that has seen its fair share of future stars in the winners’ enclosure with the likes of Capri, Battle of Marengo, Sea The Stars and St Nicholas Abbey among the impressive roll call.
Delano Roosavelt, Kew Gardens and Riyazan all met at Leopardstown with not much to choose between them. There’s no doubting Kew Gardens and Delano will improve with each run and this track will suit as it emphasises stamina. Saxon Warrior went into lots of notebooks as a future group race winner when winning at the Curragh. He powered up the home straight & looks a star. He is entered in the Royal Lodge and also the Racing Post trophy. With the help of Ryan Moore he should be winning this, with Delano Roosavelt the one to give him most to do.
