Today's Horse Racing Tips: Pepper looks a spicy proposition

It's the Irish St Leger at the Curragh this afternoon.
It's the Irish St Leger at the Curragh this afternoon.

I was not even close yesterday and am stuck on a losing run! Fingers crossed my luck can change very soon. I have picked out three bets for today’s superb card at the Curragh, which features four Group 1 contests. 

Curragh Tips

14:35 – 1m2f Moyglare “Jewels” Blandford Stakes (Group 2)

The consistent CAYENNE PEPPER (1 point win bet at 5/1) can land a deserved Group 2 success having finished second in the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes (behind Magical) and in the Irish Oaks. She was second again in Group 3 company last time out but that came behind a very classy filly. This drop back to ten furlongs should really suit her as she hasn’t looked the strongest finisher over 1m4f after travelling well. One Voice may prove the biggest danger and at a bigger price, Bolleville should also go well.

15:10 – 5f Derrinstown Stud Flying Five Stakes (Group 1)

This quality renewal of the Flying Five can go to MAKE A CHALLENGE (NAP – 1 point win bet at 5/1). Although he is yet to win at the highest level, he couldn’t be in better form having won four Listed races this season. He is a five-time winner at this course, appreciates some ease underfoot and is equally effective over both five and six furlongs. A’Ali, who is also having an excellent season, is next best followed by Que Amoro, who was second in the Nunthorpe Stakes last time out.

16:40 – 1m6f Comer Group International Irish St. Leger (Group 1)

With five course victories to his name, including three over today’s 1m6f trip, TWILIGHT PAYMENT (1 point win bet at 4/1) looks to have strong claims of securing a first Group 1 success. Joseph O’Brien’s star stayer has won his last two starts, both over this course and distance, by a combined distance of over ten lengths. This doesn’t look the strongest Group 1 with Fujaira Prince looking the biggest danger.  However, he is stepping up from handicap company.
