The action switches to The Curragh for the second day of Longines Irish Champions Weekend. Our Irish expert, Johnny Ward, has three strong fancies on the card.

3.40 Curragh: Snowfall

Snowfall would be much shorter in the betting had she not run on soft ground behind Pretty Gorgeous and Shale here last time.

She does have a bit to prove but her form is solid, plus she's by Deep Impact, trained by Aidan O'Brien and 25-1. The favourite does look very hard to beat but that is reflected by her price.

Snowfall won at The Curragh in July

4.10 Curragh: Thunder Moon

The Jospeh O'Brien-trained colt looked very exciting in winning on his debut at the Curragh and I am not sure why he has been put in such a big price here.

5.50 Curragh: Kipling

Seventh Heaven's brother may not quite get a mile and a half to judge from his Roscommon return but he should get ten furlongs no problem and he is really interesting here off 91, having since hacked up at Navan. He's really well-bred and Fran Berry's nap of the weekend on On The Wire.
