Horse Racing - Racing: Native Trail eyeing hat-trick

Charlie Appleby has already claimed the 2,000 Guineas and the French equivalent and could complete the hat-trick as Native Trail lines up at the Curragh.

Beaten for the first time at Newmarket by stablemate Coroebus, Native Trail will bid to bounce back and extend his perfect record at the Curragh in Saturday's Irish 2,000 Guineas. He's 2/5 for the win and you can follow the action via our Sports Live Streaming platform.

Native Trail has previous at the Curragh

The last time he was at the County Kildare track he powered to a dominant victory in the Group 1 National Stakes last September before following up in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket the following month.

After wintering well at Godolphin's Moulton Paddocks powerbase, last year's champion two-year-old extended his unbeaten record to five when landing the Group 3 Craven Stakes on his reappearance in April. He then met his first defeat in the 2,000 Guineas.

Appleby talks up prep

His opposition at the Curragh is headed by Buckaroo, with connections making a late call to run in the race. Dropping back to a mile, he ran out an impressive of the Tetrarch Stakes last time out.

Aidan O'Brien relies on the supplemented Ivy League, a horse who only made his debut in late March.

Appleby said: "Native Trail heads back to the Curragh in great nick. We have been delighted with the way he came out of the 2,000 Guineas and how his preparation has gone. Obviously, a repeat of his Newmarket run is going to make him the one to beat."

He added: "There are some showers forecast but good or good to soft ground should hopefully make it a fair playing field for everyone."
