O’Brien Mob Handed In Moyglare But Memory Heads The Betting At 10/11

The Aidan O’Brien stable is responsible for four of the twelve horses declared for Sunday’s Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh, in an effort to end the unbeaten run of 10/11 favourite Memory.

Twelve horses have been declared for Sunday’s Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh, with trainer Aidan O’Brien set to saddle one third of the field.

Stable jockey Johnny Murtagh is expected to ride the Galileo filly Together, although the rider decided to give up his mounts at Wexford on Friday, due to dehydration.

Together, finished third behind fellow rival Laughing Lashes on her most recent start, with stable companion Misty For Me, splitting the pair in second place in the Group 2 Keeneland Debutante Stakes.

Murtagh’s mount is a 10/1 shot with Stan James, Victor Chandler, Boylesport and Betfred. Misty For Me can also be backed at that price, but only with Bet365, who are offering free bets of up to £200 to new customers.

Dubutante Stakes winner Laughing Lashes is a general 7/2 shot for Sunday’s 7f event, after being supplemented on Friday morning, but the market is headed by the unbeaten Richard Hannon filly Memory, at a best price 10/11 with Blue Square and William Hill.

After three impressive victories the Danehill Dancer filly is a clear 6/1 favourite for next years 1000 Guineas and connections are confident of a big run, on her first attempt at the 7f trip.

Harry Herbert, racing manager for the owners Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, is looking forward to the contest saying: “ It’s a very hot race and everything has to go right, but to go into the Moyglare as a warm favourite is fantastic for everyone.

“ I don’t think the extra furlong should be a problem. She’s not short of speed but her pedigree would suggest seven furlongs will suit her very well.“

O’Brien’s third string Wild Wind, the mount of Colm O’Donoghue, could be the value of the race at Bet365’s 11/1. Another daughter of Danehill Dancer, the filly is lightly raced, has already beaten Laughing Lashes, and with the distance no problem on pedigree can come out best of the O’Brien quartet.
