Older Comments about the 2013 Irish Champion Stakes (G1)...

The outcome of this year's Irish Champion Stakes is very weather dependent. Aidan O'Brien & John Gosden would love to see the rain hold off, as Declaration of War and The Fugue both seem to be at their best over fast ground. Whereas, Roger Charlton would very much like to see the rain arrive before tomorrow's race because Al Kazeem definitely prefers ground he can dig his toe into more than ground he bounces over the top of. Though if the rain does come, Aidan O'Brien isn't completely out of the mix with Kingsbarns in the field last seen winning the G1 Racing Post Trophy 11 months ago on soft ground at Doncaster. If the rain hold off, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Roger Charlton scratch Al Kazeem and take him to Longchamp for the G2 Prix Foy next Sunday instead. But assuming everyone entered for the race runs my picks would be on fast ground: 1st-Declaration of War 2nd-The Fugue 3rd-Al Kazeem 4th-Kingsbarns. On soft ground: 1st-Al Kazeem 2nd-Kingsbarns 3rd-Trading Leather 4th-Declaration of War.
