Marie’s Diamond has been confirmed an intended runner in the GAIN Railway Stakes at the Curragh on Saturday
Mark Johnston’s juvenile has won two of his four starts to date, with his only disappointing display coming at Epsom in the Woodcote Stakes.
Connections put that run down to the ground and will be watching declarations closely to see which of Aidan O’Brien’s five runners will be turning up.
“The plan is to run. We’re not sure what happened at Epsom, we think it might have been the soft ground,” said Mike Prince of owners Middleham Park Racing.
“He’s by Footstepsinthesand so fast ground is his thing.
“I suppose it all depends what Aidan runs, really, but he doesn’t usually run his best ones in this so we’ll see if Sergei Prokofiev runs or not.
“As Silvestre (de Sousa) was coming over for Dee Ex Bee in the Derby he’s free to ride which is a bonus, too.”
