A’Ali is to head back to Ireland for the Derrinstown Stud Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh on Irish Champions Weekend.

Simon and Ed Crisford’s three-year-old has already plundered one nice prize at the Curragh this season when beating subsequent winner Make A Challenge in the Sapphire Stakes.

He finished a respectable fourth to Battaash in the Nunthorpe last week and will remain at Group One level for the race on September 13.

Joint trainer Ed Crisford said: “He ran a nice race. It’s a quick five at York and he was slightly outpaced early on, but he finished very well, which I was very pleased with – in another 50 yards he could have been third. With that tail wind, the leaders just don’t come back.

“He’s come out of it very well and I think we’ll go to the Curragh for the Flying Five in three weeks. A stiff five at the Curragh should suit him perfectly and he’s obviously won there before.

“There’ll be no Battaash in Ireland and I think he’ll be going there with every chance.”
