Newbury

Lord Weinstock Stakes

Listed Race For 3 year olds

Distance: 2,012m

Purse: 50,000 GBP

Talaayeb has entries in both the Irish Oaks and the Coronation Stakes and Owen Burrows will be expecting nothing less than a victory, particularly with Champion Jockey Jim Crowley booked for the ride. Sir Micheal Stoute’s Ebbesbourne looks the biggest threat. Ryan Moore takes the reins of the steadily-progressive Teofilio-sired filly.

Leopardstown

Ballycorus Stakes

Group 3 Race For 3 year olds and upwards

Distance: 1,408m

Purse: 63,000 EUR

There’s huge British interest, in this G3 encounter, with Richard Fahey’s yard represented by the very-useful Don’t Touch. Firmanent, an inmate of David O’Meara, has also impressed but does make a habit of filling the runners-up spot. Both must see-off the legendary Gordon Lord Byron, who is still running competitively as a 9-year-old.

Saint-Cloud

While none of today’s French races are black-type affairs, 3 definitely stand-out.
