Horses To Follow » Sinawann


Sinawann ran well for a long way in the Irish 2000 Guineas. A little keen early on for Ronan Whelan, he travelled well then in third place just up on the outside of Vatican City. He went forward with Lope Y Fernandez as that rival made his move on the outside and moved across to join him, but he had to check then inside the final furlong, and he just kept on from there.

He shaped like a horse who would improve for the run, and who would probably improve for a step up in trip. Winner of his maiden over a mile at The Curragh last August, Michael Halford’s horse ran a big race in the Group 2 Champions Juvenile Stakes on Irish Champions’ Weekend at Leopardstown in September. He had to bide his time there before he could get out after Mogul, and he only went down by just over a length to Aidan O’Brien’s horse in the end. A son of Kingman, he is a half-brother to Silwana, who won over a mile and a half and two miles for Dermot Weld, and his dam is a half-sister to Sinndar, so he should improve for stepping up in trip.
