Curragh Tips: Paddy Power and Ruby Walsh’s three horses you can’t ignore on Saturday

A new pod means more juicy tips to get stuck into.



Paddy Power and Ruby Walsh welcomed Frank Hickey back into the fold for another hot-off-the-press From The Horse’s Mouth podcast on Friday afternoon.

The lads looked back at some stunning performances at the Ebor Festival and served up some tips for the final day, as well as dishing out some selections for the best of the action at the Curragh on Saturday.

You can listen to the shiny new pod below, or wherever you get your podcasts from, but we’ve done the honours to present to you Paddy and Ruby’s selections at the Curragh on Saturday right here.

Ruby’s picks

25:45 Shale (NAP)

Obviously Shale was behind Meala first time up in Leopardstown. Meala went on to win at Galway, but I think Shale has improved more and improved quicker. It’s won at Gowran, won at Leopardstown, and I think Shale will be the one to beat for Donnacha O’Brien and Gavin Ryan.

16:45 Cadillac

Cadillac managed to win by 9 lengths on its first start in Leopardstown. It looked so impressive. Jessica Harrington’s had 14 individual Group 2 winners this year, she’s the two-year-old queen, never mind Aidan O’Brien being the two-year-old king. She’s picked Cadillac to win here and that’ll do for me.

15:45 Meala

I’m going to go for Meala. I mean, winning a maiden by 11 lengths over seven furlongs. That’s got to be hard, no matter how strong or weak the maiden is. It’s pretty impressive so she’s the favourite at the moment, might drift, but Maela for me.

16:45 Cadillac

I couldn’t agree more with Ruby. Cadillac’s 9-length win first time out was impressive. I’m Cadillac all over, here.
