Siren and Slade in Sprint battle

first_img Sea Siren struck three times at the highest level when trained by John O’Shea in Australia and made a pleasing debut for Aidan O’Brien’s stable when landing the Listed Belgrave Stakes at Fairyhouse a month ago. The Eddie Lynam-trained Slade Power is a significant threat in this six-furlong Group Three, however, having progressed with each start this season, most recently running a blinder behind Lethal Force at Newmarket. Multiple Group One-winning mare Sea Siren and July Cup third Slade Power face off in an intriguing battle for the Paypal Supporting Irish Autism Action Phoenix Sprint Stakes at the Curragh. Lynam said: “We have to give Sea Siren six pounds and she is a very good mare, but my fellow is in good form and I’m very happy with him.” Ken Condon is anticipating a bold show from In Salutem, runner-up in a conditions race at Naas last week. Condon said: “He should have a better record than he has. He has only one win to his name but he probably should have three. He flatters to deceive at times. He has always done nice homework but hasn’t really translated it on to the racecourse. I know he is going to be an outsider on Sunday but I think putting in him a better race might see him in a better light.” David Marnane declared Dandy Boy and Red Dubawi, but relies on the former as Red Dubawi ran at Tipperary on Friday evening. Dandy Boy makes his first start since finishing down the field in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. Marnane said: “He’s had a break since Ascot and he will appreciate the ground and the trip. It is a hot race but I’m hoping for a good solid run from him.” Andrew Oliver’s Sendmylovetorose looks to build on a promising comeback run at Galway, while Michael Dods sends Mass Rally on the trip from Britain. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
