(Anam Alta can stamp her authority all over the Express Stakes at the Curragh)
(Violet Lashes (in 2nd here) will hope to go one better today)
In the final race on the card Violet Lashes can win for jockey Fran Berry & trainer Jessica Harrington, she finished 5th in a 20 runner maiden on her first start before finishing 2nd behind live Classic contender Kissed in a Navan race with similar conditions to today's race. Violet Lashes was clear of the rest of the field that day & the form could be very strong as Kissed looks like she'll have a real chance in the Oaks, our pick already has the form in the book whereas 7 of today's rivals are unraced & the ones that have run haven't run to her level of form. We reckon it's worth chancing that Violet Lashes has progressed from last year, in which case she could chew these rivals up & spit them out en route to a win at odds close to 9/4.
Curragh 4.00 - Anam Alta to win at 4/1
Curragh 5.30 - Violet Lashes to win at 9/4
