Racing news and tips: Rain Goddess heads Aidan O’Brien treble at Curragh

• Ryan Moore’s mount may be aimed at Breeders’ Cup
• Saxon Warrior given fatuous Derby quote after maiden win

Rain Goddess bounced back from an unsuccessful run at Arlington a fortnight ago with a gutsy victory in the Group Three contest for fillies’ Stakes at The Curragh. The Aidan O’Brien-trained daughter of Galileo returned to the kind of form that had seen her finish second to Enable in the Irish Oaks, to register her first success since her debut 11 months previously.

Ridden by Ryan Moore, the 11-4 joint-favourite got past her pacemaking stablemate Key To My Heart inside the final furlong and got home by half a length from the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Intimation.

Ryan Moore guides Roly Poly to thrilling victory in the Prix Rothschild

• Aidan O’Brien’s progressive filly wins second successive Group One race
• Barry Geraghty returns to the saddle at Galway for his first rides since Easter

Roly Poly once again showed her toughness as she ran out a game winner of the Prix Rothschild at Deauville on Sunday.

Aidan O’Brien’s filly has come out of the shadow of her stablemate Winter, who beat her in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and the Coronation Stakes, by first winning the Group One Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket and now doubling up in France.

Aidan O’Brien first to sweep Guineas board as Winter triumphs at Curragh

• Ryan Moore pays tribute to O’Brien: ‘He sees things from a different direction’
• Trainer limits news of his Derby hopes to: ‘We have six very strong possibles’

Aidan O’Brien became the first trainer to sweep the Guineas in England and in Ireland when Winter loped clear of her rivals in the 1,000 Guineas here on Sunday. Like her stablemate Churchill on Saturday, she was following up on an authoritative success in the Newmarket equivalent three weeks ago and, also like him, she is now an even-money favourite for a Royal Ascot race next month – in her case, the Coronation Stakes.

O’Brien has enjoyed so many such victories that even dedicated racing fans can hardly be expected to be thrilled by each one, especially when he wins yet another Irish Classic and when the winner is unbackably short, as Winter was at odds of 8-13. But the significance of this particular achievement should not be missed.

Aidan O’Brien’s Churchill adds Irish 2,000 Guineas to victory roll call

• Ryan Moore’s mount defies mud to cruise to Curragh win at odds of 4-9
• O’Brien blissful over Churchill’s ‘jig-joggy’ approach to racing

Teeming, unforecast quantities of rain drenched Ireland’s premier Flat racecourse in the buildup to the Irish 2,000 Guineas, as if the elements were determined to provide a new test for Churchill, the latest “unbeatable” to emerge from the Ballydoyle stable. The imposing colt returned spattered with muck but with an extra sheen on his reputation, having powered past Thunder Snow for a comfortable victory at odds of 4-9.

“It wouldn’t be his ground,” said Ryan Moore on dismounting, noting that the track had been similarly muddy on the only occasion Churchill was beaten, when making his debut a year ago. “He went through it because he’s such a strong horse but that ground wouldn’t suit a horse with his class.”

Tony Hind: The man Flat jockeys go to if they want to become champion

In a rural Cambridgeshire village ‘Bony’ Hind has just celebrated steering Jim Crowley to his first title, but it was nothing new to the agent who has now represented seven of the last 11 winners

In a well-appointed shed-office behind a sleepy street here in rural Cambridgshire works one of the most influential and successful men in British Flat racing. Tony ‘Bony’ Hind has made his way from mucking out horses at Shergar’s stable more than 30 years ago to become the dominant jockey’s agent in the game, responsible for the champion in seven of the past 11 seasons.

This year’s success by Jim Crowley, a huge achievement by the jockey himself, is also the crowning moment in Hind’s career. He received little public acknowledgement for his efforts in helping Ryan Moore and Richard Hughes to become champions three times each, the manifest excellence of both men making them unsurprising victors, but Crowley’s case is different. As a 38-year-old who spent the early part of his career riding over fences, his credentials for stardom were less clear and he was on offer at 66-1 for the title when betting began 10 months ago.

Ryan Moore back from injury with a bang aboard Spatial at Newmarket

• Jockey had been absent for almost a month with hip problem
• No new details about injury but Goodwood limp has gone

Ryan Moore is a master of the well-timed run and the man who is widely regarded as the best jockey in the business made a smooth, winning return to action here on Friday after almost a month on the sidelines. Moore arrives back in the weighing room with 12 days to prepare for the St Leger meeting at Doncaster, a fixture which kicks off an international cycle of championship meetings when demand for his services will reach its peak.

Spatial, the 4-6 favourite for the opening race on the card, eased Moore back into the winning groove with a two and a half length success under a hand ride. A daughter of Spacious, who was beaten just half a length when second to Natagora in the 1,000 Guineas eight seasons ago, she looked well up to Group-race standard here and could line up next in the Group Two Rockfel Stakes back at Newmarket next month.
