Key betting news, going and non-runners on Sunday
John Gosden had to settle for second place in Saturday's Irish Derby but hopes to go one place better in the big race at the Curragh this afternoon.
Journey bids to succeed where Cracksman (narrowly) failed in a high-class running of the Pretty Polly Stakes, which has attracted three other Group or Grade 1 winners.
Last year's Irish St Leger winner Wicklow Brave tackles the Comer Group International Curragh Cup and former Irish Champion Stakes winner The Grey Gatsby has his first run for Dermot Weld in the Finlay Volvo International Stakes.
Coronation Cup third Hawkbill bids to continue Godolphin's recent run of good form in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.
He is one of three British trained runners but there is no overseas challenge for the German Derby at Hamburg, where trainer Markus Klug supplies no fewer than seven of the 19-runner field including Union Rennen winner Colomano.
The richest race in Britain is the £75,000 Marston's Pedigree Summer Cup at Uttoxeter.
