Gaelic Football: Bride's rather hot in my book.

Byline: PADDY

THE Moyglare Stakes is the big one at The Curragh this afternoon and it looks like a cracker.

Last year it was a one horse book and race with Rumplestiltskin winning at 2/7. This time, it's Supposition for Dermot Weld who holds the favourite tag but at 9/4. She was very impressive at Galway, but let's face it that was a bit of a mickey mouse race and she didn't beat much.

Her previous run was far more impressive to me. That was in defeat to Duke of Marmalade, who has turned out to be one of O'Brien's leading two year old colts. She has her chance, but I'd prefer to invest elsewhere.

I don't fancy the second favourite either. Jeremy Noseda is not sending over Simply Perfect for the good of his health and Kieren Fallon is a plus, but she's been beaten at both Group 3 and 2 before this step up to Group 1.

She's an improver, but isn't as good as either Supposition or Brazillian Bride, who I'll be backing. Her run the last day may have been her first defeat, but it was her best run so far. She'll come on heaps for it and there's nothing wrong with getting beaten just two lengths by Holy Roman Emperor.
