Van Dyck heads the O’Brien chal­lenge

The Racing Paper - - News -

AI­DAN O’BRIEN has won the last three De­whursts and this year calls on An­thony Van Dyck, Mo­hawk and Christ­mas in a bid for a sev­enth win in the race over­all.

The sta­ble num­ber one ap­pears to be An­thony Van Dyck, who found only Quorto too good in the Na­tional Stakes at the Cur­ragh.

Step­ping up in class is the Sir Michael Stoute­trained San­gar­ius, although he has made quite a splash in two starts to date.

He was last seen win­ning a race at Don­caster that Frankel claimed on his way to su­per-star­dom.

Over­looked in the bet­ting is Kuwait Cur­rency.

How­ever, the Richard Han­non-trained colt has done lit­tle wrong in win­ning two of his three starts.

Han­non said: “Kuwait Cur­rency has done very well since he won the Stone­henge Stakes at Sal­is­bury.

“If they get a bit of rain that might help, though fast ground on that nice straight course ought to be fine for him any­way.”
