HARD to believe we are heading into the month of June, bringing with it a host of top-class flat racing action at home and away. As we do so we have a weekend of classic action at the Curragh, with Tattersalls taking centre stage with their sponsorship of the three Group 1 races.

Sadly, Minding’s late defection has robbed the Gold Cup of its star turn, but the race has nonetheless attracted a competitive field.
