The Curragh: Home of racing in Ireland
Rookie trainer James Tate is looking forward to saddling his first runner in Ireland when the hat-trick-seeking Free Code lines up in the Go And Go Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.
A close second on his Doncaster debut, the Kodiac colt ran out a comfortable winner of a Thirsk maiden before landing a Haydock nursery with a degree of comfort.
Tate said: "The plan is for him to run and it will be my first runner in Ireland, which is pretty exciting.
"He's a lovely, big two-year-old and he's done nothing wrong in three starts so far.
"It looks like it's going to be a smallish field. There's a chance that he's going to be a better two-year-old than three-year-old - he looks like a three-year-old now - so we're keen to push on with him."
Free Code is one of 12 entries for the Group Three over six-furlong contest and the only possible British-trained runner in the line-up.
Aidan O'Brien is unsurprisingly well represented, with hugely impressive Naas maiden winner Great White Eagle in contention alongside stablemates Oklahoma City, Bluebell, Expedition and Guerre.
David Marnane's Boom The Groom is another interesting contender.
