Group Three tops Gowran Park card
The Group Three Denny Cordell Lavarack And Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes is the pick of the action on an eight-race card Gowran Park, and features a pair of British raiders.
Michael Stoute's Intimation is without a win this season but may well have her supporters, while Marco Botti runs recent Haydock Listed scorer Aljazzi.
The home assault on the prize is headed by Dermot Weld, who saddles the hat-trick seeking Sea Swift, while Discipline is another for Weld who has shown plenty in three starts to date.
Add in How High The Moon for Aidan O'Brien and Laganore for Tony Martin, and a cracking race is in the offing.
O'Brien runs Bound and Nutcracker Suite in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at 2.20, though they will have to step up on recent efforts to fend off a pair of Qatar Racing-owned runners in Dreamy Gal and Wayside Flower.
The latter's trainer Ger Lyons has two runner in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden, with newcomer Circling Moon overlooked by Colin Keane in favour of World War, who was second to Douglas Macarthur on his debut at Leopardstown.
Weld unleashes Rich History, a half-brother to the high-class Free Eagle, in the race, while O'Brien relies on the once-raced San Remo and Tang Dynasty, who has been somewhat frustrating so far.
Weld has a strong hand in the gowranpark.ie Rate Race as he saddles Kalisma, who has her first run since winning at Naas almost a year ago, and Massayan, a winner at Galway latest.
My Direction and Nearly Famous add to the list of last-time-out winners in what promises to be an intriguing contest.
Nicole McKenna's Modern Tutor bids to follow up a Down Royal win in the first division of the Tote Pick 6 Is Heading For One Million Handicap, while the second division sees Nannys Well out quickly after winning at Listowel on Monday.
