Aidan O’Brien has some very strong chances on Saturday and if all five of these horses win, the bookies could take a proper pasting. You can back the win accumulator in one click using the provided bet slips below. View our free horse racing tips.
Ballydoyle have won the last 11 renewals of this race which is incredible and they can continue that run with Adelaide River. The son of Australia won stylishly on debut at Dundalk in August before going down by a neck in a French Group 3. He has the scope to improve.
Godolphin’s Flying Honours is all the rage in the betting but O’Brien has won two of the last four runnings of this race and won it seven times in total so he usually sends a good one here. Greenland produced a career best when making it fourth time lucky at Roscommon and there could be more to come.
Meditate is bred to be all speed and although she won narrowly over 7f in the Debutate at the Curragh in August, she was all out that day and it helped that the ground was rapid. It was no surprise to see her beat on heavy over 7f in the Moyglare but she still ran very well in defeat. She is a 6f horse and should show her best back in trip now.
Blackbeard is a headstrong individual who will likely act up behind the stalls again, but that didn’t prevent him from winning the Prix Robert Papin at Chantilly and Prix Morny at Deauville. Another No Nay Never just like Meditate, the 6f here is ideal and he is all speed.
Hiawatha stepped up on his Galway second to win his maiden here at the Curragh over the mile in August, doing it very cosily. The drop back to 7f shouldn’t be an inconvenience and he deserves his place near the head of the market.
