John Oxx: Hopeful

Trainer John Oxx expects the fast ground at the Curragh to suit Little White Cloud in the Airlie Stud Gallinule Stakes on Sunday.

The Dalakhani colt outran his odds in the Derrinstown Derby Trial when a close third behind Battle Of Marengo and Loch Garman.

"He ran well in the Derrinstown Derby Trial on his first run of the year when the ground was a little dead for him," said Oxx.

"That run should have sharpened him up nicely and fast ground will suit."

Aidan O'Brien runs Leading Light and Count Of Limonade. Joseph O'Brien has opted for Leading Light, with Ryan Moore on Count Of Limonade.

"Leading Light won a maiden at the back end of last season and won nicely," said O'Brien jnr. "He was very impressive in Navan so I'm looking forward to him.

"Count Of Limonade has done nothing but improve. He won a Dundalk handicap off a high enough mark and the good ground should suit him. They are both in good form and should both run well."
