Ballydoyle brigade excites Hensey

General manager Paul Hensey is relishing the prospect of the likes of Gleneagles, Ol' Man River and John F Kennedy working after racing at the Curragh on Sunday.

Gleneagles tops the ante-post betting for the Qipco 2000 Guineas while his two stablemates are also high in the list for the Newmarket Classic as well as heading the market for the Investec Derby.

"It's something has become a bit of a tradition. Aidan has a big team of horses booked in," Hensey told At The Races.

"He has 70 horses booked in to gallop after racing on Sunday.

"It will be lovely to see those horses and see how they've wintered.

"It's great for people to see the horses for the first time in the new season."

Sunday's meeting kicks off the Irish turf season and features the Group Three Lodge Park Stud EBF Park Express Stakes and the Tote Irish Lincolnshire.
