Irish Champions Weekend (Day Two ) Sunday 10th September

Day two of Irish Champions Weekend,with the feature race the Irish St Leger .

Good to see the return of last years winner Kyprios ,though really disappointing turn out for €500,000 race, with only five runners declared .

Not easy card to find much value ,especially in group races ,with lot short price favourites .The G2 Blanford Stakes at 2.25 looks one most interesting races .

Moyglare ''Jewels'' Blandford Stakes (Group 2) (Fillies & Mares) (3yo+) Winner €118,000 11 runners 1m2f Good RTE2
race conditions  €200,000 guaranteed For  3yo+ fillies & mares only Weights  3yo 9st 2lbs; 4yo+ 9st 8lbs Penalties  (to count from 1st January, 2023) Winner of a Group 1 race 3lb extra Weight for age  3yo from 4yo+ 6lb Penalty value  1st  €118,000.00 2nd  €38,000.00 3rd  €18,000.00 4th  €8,000.00 5th  €4,000.00 6th  €2,000.00
The Aidan O'Brien trained Jackie Oh has been put in jt favourite at around 4-1 ,after winning G3 contest at Gowran Park on heavy ground back in July , though all her best form has been on soft or heavy conditions , fast ground has to be major concern after running very poorly at Royal Ascot on similar ground.

The British raider ARAMINTA  should go well ,after winning 9f group three contest at Chantilly last time ,that form looks solid with second Exellent Truth boosting the form next time, winning G3 contest at Deauville.Had previously won the 10f Height Of Fashion listed stakes at Goodwood in good style .Looks open to plenty more improvement after just four starts .Odds around 4-1 look solid each-way value,especially with bookmakers paying 4 places 

The consistent Lumiere Rock has each-way claims ,after finishing good second at Deauville last time in G2 company ,also finished creditable second in Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot behind Warm Heart on fast ground .
0.50 PTS EACH-WAY @ 4-1 CORALS (1/5 ODDS 1-2-3-4)
(FOURTH SP 9-2 LOSS £10.00/0.10)
