Teo's sister

The Amistress/Undulent Way exacta was correct. If only it was Undulent Way who had won, then the Win recommendation would have been perfect.

The first race on the Thursday card at Leopardstown sees the debut of Teo's sister, an aptly-named daughter of Galileo since she's the full sister to Teofilo, the 2-year old champion of 2006. Teofilo was a remarkable race-horse who was unbeaten in 5 races and for whom his trainer, Jim Bolger, had ear-marked the evasive English Triple Crown as goal; Guineas, Derby and St Leger. Unfortunately, an injury before the start of his 3-year old debut ended the colt's career and raised questions of what might have been. The "best he's trained" were the words from the legendary trainer himself.

Getting back to the race tomorrow, if Teo's sister has the same potent genes as her brother, she will be tough to beat in this fillies' Maiden race. Her main opponent looks to be Shiramiyna from the Oxx stable, who had an encouraging debut a little more than 3 weeks ago when a keeping-on fourth on her debut. Teo's sister should win this if she's fit and ready to race, but for a debut, an each-way recommendation on her looks the safer punt.

Each-way: Teo's sister
