Tommy Stack tends to do well on turf at this time of year and his runners at the Curragh are worth a second glance on Sunday. The yard has sent out 20 winners from 92 turf Flat runners in Ireland (21.7% strike-rate) during the month of March and backing them all blind would have returned a profit of £43.41 to a £1 level stake. Back in 2010 he sent out four from four at this meeting (10-1, 7-1, 6-1 and 9-2) but this system has not proved so lucrative in recent years.
The flat season begins in earnest this Saturday with the £100,000 Lincoln Handicap providing an ideal springboard for the summer ahead. We've worked through the 22 horse field and pinpointed a likeliest winner, two dark horses and a live outsider at the bottom of our horse-by-horse rundown!
