Bet On The Red Mills Irish Champion Stakes

Snow_Fairy_2333967bRated the seventh-highest race in the world, the Red Mills Irish Champion Stakes takes place this weekend at Leaopardstown, and, as usual, it has attracted some of the most recognised and sought after names in horse racing. A fine field will be fighting it out over one mile and two furlongs to claim the EUR 750, 000 in prize money. Leading the books in this strong field at this stage of the week is Declaration of War, followed by The Fugue and Al Kazeem. But a number of horses could step up to claim the title come Saturday evening.

Outside that opening trio of favourites, Kingsbarn has been receiving a fair deal of attention in the lead up to the race. Aidan O’Brien’s Racing Post Trophy winner was brilliant in that win in Doncaster but has not run since last October. He is nonetheless a fine addition to O’Brien’s quintet of runners, which includes Declaration Of War and Camelot, another strong midfield choice.

Among a strong pack of colts, a filly is also being tipped for a strong run. The Fugue was sensational in winning the Yorkshire Oaks last month, her second Group 1 victory, and the fast ground expected at Leopradstown will suit her very nicely.

One horse who may not be looking forward to the dry conditions is Al Kazeem. The Roger Charlton-trained horse brought up his Group 1 hat-trick by winning the Tattersalls Gold Cup, the Prince Of Wales Stakes and the Coral Eclipse, but was beaten by both Declaration Of War and Trading Leather in the Juddmonte International in York last month and Charlton may feel a little uneasy going into Saturday’s race.

That win in York will have done the world of good for Declaration Of War and perhaps justifiably he has been installed as the favourite for the race. But a lot will depend on the ground conditions, and with such a strong field lining up for this one, there can be no certainties.
