The Ten To Follow Flat is back! From May 23rd until June 2nd you can select your Ten To Follow team for a fantastic summer of flat racing.

We’ve put together a list of ten Irish horses you might want to consider for your stables.

Tuesday

Trained by Aidan O'Brien

It would be hard to start an Irish list without a mention for a Aidan O’Brien trained star and Tuesday certainly fits that bill. 

She lost her maiden tag at the second time of asking but has since been placed in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Irish equivalent at the Curragh. 

It would be a surprise if she didn’t continue to improve this season and with the Epsom Oaks already signalled as her next stop, before a likely trip to Royal Ascot, she’s got the potential to bag you plenty of points.

Princess Zoe

Trained by Anthony Mullins

Princess Zoe opened up this season's account with an eye-catching win in the Group Three Sagaro Stakes at Ascot in April, where despite drifting inside the final furlong, she still managed to hold on to the line.

Mullins has not held back with his liking for her on social media, with the only plan for her right now being to head to Royal Ascot in June for the Gold Cup. 

Stone Age

Trained by Aidan O'Brien

This Galileo Colt has been very exciting in his short career so far and went in to many people’s notebooks without losing his maiden tag. 

This season he has come out with all cylinders firing, winning both of his starts with the Epsom Derby up next. Beyond that, he holds entries for three Group One races amongst others, including the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe later in the year.

If he continues his good start this term, he could be the one to shoot your stable up the leaderboard.

Sonnyboyliston

Trained by J P Murtagh

Sonnyboyliston was a consistent horse last season, winning three of his six starts and placing in two others. He also headed out to Saudi Arabia where he finished 2nd of 14 runners.

He only has one entry so far for the Group Two Curragh Cup in June, but we should expect more entries to be made moving forward. 

It is never a surprise when we see Johnny Murtagh win a big weekend race and Sonnyboyliston could be the horse to do that for him. 

Piz Badile

Trained by Donnacha O'Brien

We now move onto the youngest O’Brien trainer Donnacha and one of his stable stars Piz Badile. A talented horse who has won two of his three career starts and has the Epsom Derby in his sights next.

Taking after his Dad, Donnacha has ensured that Piz Badile has plenty of options moving forward, entering him in three Group One races following the Derby.

He’s been an outstanding horse for this growing yard and another successful season here will have him well in the points for Ten To Follow.

Tenebrism

Trained by Aidan O'Brien

This Caravaggio filly was outstanding last year winning both of her starts, including a comfortable win in the Group One Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes

She made her seasonal reappearance in a strongly run 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket, where she was anything but the horse we grew to love last season. 

However, the Ballydoyle team will be hopeful she can bounce back to her best if Aidan decides to head to one of her multiple entries at Royal Ascot. If she can improve on that run at Newmarket, then she’s definitely a horse who could earn some points. 

Above The Curve

Trained by Joseph O'Brien

We to the third and final O’Brien on the list, Joseph. Above The Curve has been a very consistent horse for connections with a win and two places under her belt from her three starts. 

She holds plenty of entries moving forward this season including the Epsom Oaks and Royal Ascot before a potential trip over to France for the l’Arc de Triomphe.

She’s been a remarkable horse so far, if she can carry her previous form into the rest of the season, she won’t be short of Ten To Follow points.

Kyprios 

Trained by Aidan O'Brien

Kyprios has seriously excelled since going up in trip. This season he’s won both of his starts, firstly at Navan before following up at Leopardstown a few weeks later.

He is younger than most of the staying division and remains massively unexposed, but there could be a lot more to come from him. 

Not only does he look to be heading to the Ascot Gold Cup as his main target, he also holds plenty of other entries this season and if he performs as well as his previous form may suggest, then he could be towards the top of the Ten To Follow points table.

A Case Of You

Trained by Adrian McGuinness

A Case Of You has spent much of the past year running and winning globally, including the Prix de l'Abbaye de Longchamp last October and the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan in March. 

He’s been versatile for a sprinter, winning over five and six furlongs so there are plenty of options available to him this season. 

He’s an exciting horse who could do well scoring points this season. 

Thunder Kiss

Trained by G M Lyons

This Night Of Thunder mare may have gone a little bit under the radar. She impressed last season when winning three of her seven starts and looked to have improved further when winning in a Listed Race at Cork on her seasonal reappearance. 

She holds plenty of entries moving forward this season and although she would need to progress further, she could be one that not many will have looked at but could earn some useful points.
