WHITE BIRCH retains unbeaten record this term with sumptuous win

Last year’s Epsom Derby third White Birch made it two wins from two outings this term with a convincing victory in the Coolmore Stud Sottsass Irish EBF Mooresbridge Stakes at The Curragh.

John Murphy’s grey colt came from off the pace to shade Maxux in the Alleged Stakes here last month but took up a much handier position early on in this Group Two contest over the same trip of 10 furlongs.

Colin Keane asked the four-year-old to pick off pacesetter Greenland just after turning for home and the result never looked in doubt from that point onwards. The victor could now head back to Epsom and was cut to 12-1 from 20-1 for the Coronation Cup by both Betfair and Paddy Power.

George Murphy, assistant trainer to his father, said: “I’m very pleased with that, it was a very good performance."
