Horses To Follow with PJ Walsh

PJ Walsh give us some horses to follow….

 

 

Curragh 22nd August

Minding (A P O’Brien)

Quality eye catchers were thin on the ground the past 2 weeks until this Ballydoyle-trained filly (ironic huh?) finished 2nd to her stablemate named after the famous training establishment. There are reasons to believe that Minding might turn out to be better than Ballydoyle.

In an interview on the run up to last weekend Aidan O’Brien seemed to be negative on how fully fit two of his charges might be for their respective races. Kingfisher, who was ridden negatively in a slowly run race on soft ground which was all against him and Minding who after two quick runs in maidens in Leopardstown in June was given a break.

She was also ridden slightly negatively due to her more fancied stablemate making the running and I really feel her jock would have been slightly more forceful if he had more confident in his charges fitness. He rode her to ‘come home well’ as is often the case with inexperienced runners from this stable. Minding might follow in the footsteps of the likes of Misty For Me and Halfway To Heaven and continue to be underestimated by the market as is often the case with fillies from this stable.

 

Curragh 22nd August

Jowana (D Marnane)

Big fields maidens in the Curragh can be difficult to review due to the chaotic nature of 24 inexperienced horses hurtling down the straight. This maiden produced a striking winner in the Jim Bolger trained Smash Williams but it was the fourth placed Jowana who caught my eye.

This David Marnane trained filly was ridden patiently as is usually the case with runners from this stable. She was at the rear of the near side group and gave away ground to the main protagonists but was switched in plenty time and at best could have been second to the runaway winner.

This performance should be good enough to win a country maiden but I would be quick to cut her from the horses to follow as I have found David Marnane trained runners difficult to analyse in the last few years.

 

Jeremy’s Legacy (Paul W Flynn)

It’s hard to be overly enthusiastic about this maiden but I thought Jeremy’s Legacy might be one who can improve with racing and a more efficient ride. Drawn out in stall 10 she was racing with no cover and her keenness that she showed on debut was replicated here when Declan McDonagh was unable to get in.

She was asked to make ground 3 wide on the bend when the pace seemed to be lifting and after getting to the front she weakened to be just out of the placings albeit a long way behind the impressive winner French Blue. A more favourable draw and cover should see Jeremy’s Legacy improve. Depending on where connections decide to go next she could be interesting or if over faced might be one for nurseries.
