Curvy holds off Canaletto challenge
24 May 2015 15:03
Curvy fended off hot favourite Giovanni Canaletto to complete a hat-trick for David Wachman in the Airlie Stud Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh.
-
The Aidan O'Brien-trained Giovanni Canaletto was an even-money market leader to make a winning return, having been off the track since scoring at Leopardstown in October, with Curvy a 15-2 shot to add to successive triumphs at Navan.
-
Ed Dunlop's British raider Prince Gagarin cut out much of the running in the 10-furlong Group Three, with Curvy his closest pursuer and Giovanni Canaletto - sporting a noseband to help with his head carriage - waited with.
-
The front two looked set to assert when Giovanni Canaletto came under pressure from the home turn, but the O'Brien runner did knuckle down to pick up well for Ryan Moore and give himself a chance in the final furlong.
-
Curvy was not for catching, however, keeping in the hands of Wayne Lordan to prevail by a neck.
-
The pacesetting Prince Gagarin was not disgraced in third. Giovanni Canaletto had been due to reappear in the Chester Vase, but was ruled out with a dirty scope. His performance saw him eased to 12-1 by Coral for the Investec Derby.
