This afternoon at The Curragh (4.45pm) sees Captain Carey try to continue his good run in The Rockingham Handicap over 5f but it wont all be plain sailing. We saw a few weeks ago here that the place to be was up the rail and Airspace who won against 16 opponents then is once again drawn in the Coffin Box and should be able to dominate if he can get out fast enough. He is 9lb higher now and worse off at the weights with those who finished behind him there but he looks to be an improving sort and Johnny Murtagh rides. What you have to remember is he recorded a good time there and although he is rated higher he physically has to carry 12lb less, so should in theory be able to better that run if he has an easy lead up the rail again.
Captain Carey is closely weighted with Bajan Tryst on their recent all weather meeting so it will once again be close between those two. Masta Plasta could emulate Regal Parade yesterday and put up an improved show for the Nicholls camp, however he is in stall 8 and may have it to do from there although he does finish his races well. All in all though it might be Airspace that comes out on top.
