Currie in favour
Victory on Seraphinite in the British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes at Kempton last night means that Nicola Currie now occupies the tenth slot on the list of the most successful British women Flat-racing jockeys of all-time. The Lambourn-based rider, who was crowned the all-weather champion apprentice last month after another successful winter campaign, notched up her 127th victory of her career on the two-year-old Gutaifan filly, who was the 33-1 outsider in he six-furlong contest. Nicola Currie's Kempton success is her 26th winner of 2019, following her 81 winners last year, the crowning glory of which was her winning the Challenge Cup victory on Raising Sand at Ascot in October, the biggest win of her career.
John Gosden's Too Darn Hot has become a surprise entry in Saturday's Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh. Last year's champion juvenile had to miss the Newmarket equivalent due to problems early on in the year. He was back in action at York last week in the Dante Stakes but, stepping up in trip to ten furlongs, may have been one of the reasons that he just failed to beat Telecaster. The Newmarket trainer John Gosden ruled out the Derby as the next step but the St James's Palace Stakes was stated as his next target. Now, it has now been decided to leave Too Darn Hot in the Irish Classic. Other plans will follow. Watch this space!
Kew next winner?
Aidan O'Brien hopes last year's St Leger hero Kew Gardens can improve on his previous experience of Epsom and provide him with a ninth victory in the Investec Coronation Cup. For this the Ballydoyle king will rely on this Galileo colt, who finished ninth in last year's Derby, after ruling out Magical from this Group One prize. After finishing down the field in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe last time out, Kew Gardens found Morando too good when conceding 7lb on his seasonal return in the Ormonde Stakes at Chester.
