Racing: Kinane's a fours to be reckoned with.

THE Aga Khan sponsors four races at the Curragh today and trainer Aidan O'Brien and his jockey Mick Kinane could well scoop the lot, writes LARRY LYNX.

The fabulous four with a near pounds 250,000 target are Chiang Mai, Darwin, Shoal Creek, Black Minnaloushe.

Chaing Mai (2.45) can get the ball rolling in the Blandford Stakes. The filly completed a hat trick over this course in April but was not match for Crimplene in the Irish 1000 Guineas but will find this longer trip much to her liking.

O'Brien has five runners in the group one National Stakes and Kinane has plumped for Darwin (3.45). The Danehill colt certainly looked the part when trotting up by seven lengths from Ventura on his May debut here.

Shoal Creek (4.20) appears to have a tough task in the Solonaway Stakes. However, he will find this much easier than his latest effort at York where he was fourth and pacemaker for Giants Causeway.

He had previously pipped on the post when beaten a short head by Sand Partridge at Tipperary and is just preferred to the in-form Worldly Treasure.

Black Minnaloushe (5.20) in a son of leading sire Storm Cat and will be a warm order in the Blenheim Stakes after romping home by four lengths at his debut at Cork last month.
