Jessica Harrington has already sent out 29 winners in September and she’s putting three decent contenders on her quest for the number 30 winner during what has been an incredible month for the coach.
The top rated of her trio is Bopedro with a rating of 107. The 28-1 winner from Irish Cambridgeshire was ruled out favorite for a leading handicap at Leopardstown earlier this month and soared to third place behind the smart Masen.
He earned a spot on this Listed and Harrington claimed blinders for the first time. Oodnadatta hasn’t won since her debut in a Leopardstown maiden, while Laelaps has a few pounds to find on the numbers. Bopedro seems the most likely candidate to continue Harrington’s streak of success.
Brendan Brackan won this Listed award three years in a row between 2015 and 2017 and Colin Keane was there when he landed the treble. The champion jockey, who is only eight winners away from Joseph O’Brien’s all-time record of 126 winners in one season, joins forces with Erzindjan for Dermot Weld.
Lope De Vega’s three-year-old son was too good for Laelaps at Gowran Park in May but hasn’t won since. However, he was not dishonored in a Group 2 at Leopardstown the last time around and according to the handicapper he only has one book to find. He is making strong claims with a lot in his favor.
2019 winner Up Helly Aa is back for more and would have major claims to be the best in form, while recent Listowel Geometrical runner-up is another worthy of consideration.
What they say
Tom Hogan, trainer of Nebo
The draw was not too lenient so it will be difficult for him. He is however in good shape and has performed very well all season overall.
Ado McGuinness, coach of Sirjack Thomas
I was happy with his run at the Curragh, he hasn’t been beaten so far. We are intensifying the class with him, but we have to try and find out if he is able to do it. The little juice in the soil will help him and he seems to be in great shape.
Dermot Weld, Erzindjan trainer
I think he had a great race in Group 2 at the Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown, he wasn’t beaten at all. It promises to be a very competitive revival of the race but he is going there in very good shape.
Joseph O’Brien, Rocket Science, Neptune Rock and Queenship trainer
Rocket Science is in good shape at home and we hope to find him black. Neptune Rock has a bad draw, but she looks like a high stakes filly this year, so we’re hoping for a good run. This is Queenship’s first race after a layoff. She is in good shape and we would like to find her black too.
