Buyers focused on horses in training look equally well catered for with an abundance of winning proven and unexposed performers to focus on amongst the 814 horses in/out of training catalogued. The supremely consistent Jim Bolger trained TWILIGHT PAYMENT, recent winner of the Listed Levmoss Stakes at Leopardstown and officially rated 109, looks set to attract plenty of interest, as do two 2019 Listed winning three year olds, the Archie Watson trained BARYS and the Ger Lyons trained INVERLEIGH and the Listed placed three year old FRANKEL colt EMINENT AUTHORITY coming from Joseph O’Brien’s Carriganog Stables. Three time winning ADMIRAL ROUS, trained in France by Eoghan O’Neill is another three year old colt on the upgrade, as is the Juddmonte owned John Gosden trained FRANKEL gelding GANTIER.
