Irish racing tips: Johnny Ward's 33-1 fancy at the Curragh

A double-figure priced contender in the 5.25pm is one of two selections for our Irish racing expert at the Curragh on Sunday.

Jane Mangan extolled the rare quality of the Tattersalls Gold Cup when discussing Sunday's Group One contest during Friday's coverage on Racing TV at the Curragh – and how might she not?

There haven't been many memorable renewals in recent years – really good winners but often little in opposition – but this is anything but. How marvellous it is to have a big French runner again, too.

Be lucky, and enjoy all the action at the Curragh on Sunday live on Racing TV.

4.25 Curragh: Teutates

This son of Churchill looks far too big in the betting here. His rider extolled his turn of foot when he won an all-weather maiden in January, when Teutates was still learning on the job, and he was hardly in love with deep ground on his past two outings.

There should be plenty more to come from this lightly-raced three-year-old on this ground.

5.25 Curragh: Newfoundland

A really reliable sort, his maiden form is strong and he has the pedigree to be special.

It was a somewhat tactical race when he finished seventh at Tipperary, but rider Dylan Browne McMonagle was far from hard on him, and he should be much sharper here. He should finish placed, at least.
