Leopardstown: hosts a couple of good-quality two-year-old races
1 of 1

The focus on Thursday is Leopardstown, where there are a couple of two-year-old races that have a recent history for being far more indicative than their Group 3 status implies.

The Tyros Stakes (7.10) has been won by the likes of New Approach, Rip Van Winkle, Gleneagles and Churchill in the last decade or so, while Maybe and Happily are on the Silver Flash Stakes' (6.35) roll of honour and this year's favourite, Goddess, currently holds the same position for next year's 1,000 Guineas.

In Britain Sandown, Yarmouth and Worcester make up the afternoon diet, while in the evening Doncaster and Newbury take over. Limerick also runs concurrently with Leopardstown in the evening.


Going report

Sandown (first race at: 1.50)
Good to firm (GoingStick: 7.5 at 12.30 on July 25)

2.55 Sandown - Ghostwatch 6-5 (from 5-4)
6.25 Doncaster - Itsafreebee 5-2 (from 11-4)


What to back

Jack McCarron is on duty on Thursday, providing the ten-second tip.

 


What to read

Hear the latest as US Triple Crown winner Justify is retired due to injury.

There is a market move brewing in the Sussex Stakes, not to mention some good news for Andrea Atzeni.


The best of Racing Post Sport

Read how Steve Palmer's dream of £300,000 went down in flames on the last day of the Open Championship.

Bruce Millington also has some thoughts on The Hundred.


Final thought 

The misfortune of timing, as well as injury, is likely to lead to a harsh judgement of Justify, who looked simply untouchable among this year's North American three-year-olds. That he follows American Pharoah so closely after that would-be stablemate ended a long Triple Crown drought, plus the fact he raced on to win the Breeders' Cup Classic, means he is far more likely for preferential treatment by historians.
