Horn goes hunting over at Arlington

Group One action returns to the Curragh tomorrow but some Irish trainers will go in search for big honours Stateside this evening.

Ryan Moore heads to Arlington to ride for Aidan O'Brien and Royal Ascot winner Hunting Horn (10.48 Arlington) would look to be their best chance of a winner on the card when taking on some familiar faces in the Secretariat Stakes.

Irish punters will have plenty to look forward to later this evening with Hunting Horn being joined in the Secretariat by stable companion Lucius Tiberius.

Having conquered Australia, Joseph O'Brien will take his father on in this Grade One with the progressive Ming, while Mick Halford sends over Platinum Warrior and Dermot Weld is represented by Bandua.

Chance

Hunting Horn would look the standard setter though after running well in the Belmont Derby last month.

Ballydoyle are also represented in the Beverly D Stakes by Belmont Oaks winner Athena (11.25 Arlington) who must have a strong chance of making her mark again.

The big race tonight is the Arlington Million just after midnight but Deauville would look to have a tough task on his hands there.

The well travelled five-year-old ran well at Leopardstown last time but hasn't really landed a blow at the highest level for a while now.

Simon Crisford sends over Century Dream but the locals have a strong hand and last years Secretariat Stakes winner Oscar Performance looks the pick.
