On Sunday we have top quality card from the Curragh with the feature race being the group one Pretty Polly Stakes for Filly's and Mares over 10 furlongs .
3.35 CURRAGH PRETTY POLLY STAKES G1 FILLYS & MARES:
10 runners declared for group one Pretty Polly Stakes on ground described as good to firm .The three main contenders look to be Alive Alive Oh , Was & Princess Highway .
ALIVE ALIVE OH : Won both starts this season ,including 10 furlong listed race at Navan in May by impressive 6 lenghs .Still looks open to plenty improvement ,though takes big step up in class and yet to race on ground this fast .
WAS : Won Epsom Oaks last season beating Shirocco Star & The Fugue in close finish.Also finished third in Group one Nassau Stakes at Goodwood & Yorkshire Oaks at York .Found the mile trip too short when finishing unplaced in Abu Dhabi Stakes at Curragh last time .
PRINCESS HIGHWAY : Had some useful form last season winning three times, including group two Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot by impressive 6 lenghs ,though has looked disappointing on her last three starts,including when beaten odds on favourite at Naas last time .Will need to bounce back to win in group one company ,
VERDICT : Alive Alive Oh looks open to plenty improvement this season ,though has only won in listed company, also is unproven on ground this fast, and was withdrawn from Ribblesdale stakes at Royal Ascot last week on similar ground .Odds around 2-1 look too short for horse who has never raced in group company
WAS has proven form at group one level on fast ground .She Ran with credit in most top group one fillies races last season.Should come on for her first run of the season .9-2 looks very fair value in not the strongest looking group one contest .
Princess Highway has been disappointing on recent starts and will need to bounce back in first time blinkers,though can't be ruled out and would go close if she can reproduce last season's Ripplesdale form when beating The Fugue by 6 lenghs.
