Horse Racing tips: The best bets for EVERY race at Cork on Saturday

The Racing Post’s tipster has found eight great tips for you to read over.

Cork-Racecourse Flat


14:00 Divinely @ 3/1

DIVINELY is hard to get away from in what looks a nice maiden. April Showers and Ahandfulofsummers are coming into the race off the back of pleasing debut efforts, while Light Of My Eyes won a barrier trial at Dundalk last week and will know her job.

14:30 Stribling

Debutant STRIBLING led home Minsky in a barrier trial at Dundalk recently and, given where he is housed, could be a nice price to topple some of the bigger stables’ runners.

Hyde Park Barracks has had enough chances at this stage. Petite Amie and Sloane Peterson are less exposed and could be more of a danger on just their second run. Meanwhile Mooneista should run her race, but is vulnerable to an improver.

15:05 My Laureate

Ger Lyons has a strong hand and finally claims off stable stalwart Ardhoomey, but MY LAUREATE is going to be difficult to beat if building on her reappearance at Listed level.

The ground wouldn’t want to come up soft for her but a nice pot like this is within her range. Laugh A Minute is unproven at the trip, but is the class angle. Elsewhere, Nordic Passage is on the crest of a wave and can’t be discounted either.

At the other end, surprise Curragh winner Chocquinto bids to prove that wasn’t a fluke, while Musical Rue was good at Down Royal.

15:40 Silk Forest @ 15/4

Galway hero Current Option could be hard to beat if lining up here in similar shape, but the identically-rated SILK FOREST is fresher and gets a handy 5lb sex allowance, which swings it in her favour.

The blinkered Soul Search and Unforgetabe are dangers.

16:15 Pearls Galore

PEARLS GALORE (NAP) made an immediate impact for Paddy Twomey at Limerick and the style of that win, which was clearly expected, suggested she could have a couple of big pay-days in her.

Music To My Ears has top weight for a reason, while French Rain and Maud Gonne Spirit are also interesting.

16:50 Chagall

Plenty in with chances, notably Jim Barrie, Silk Cravat and Adapt To Dan. Woods is a potential improver back in trip too.

However, last year’s C&D winner CHAGALL has ground conditions to suit for the first time this season and with a capable 7lb claimer aboard, he gets the vote.

17:25 Christines Angel

Crystal Dawn and Billyfairplay hold solid claims on recent form, as does top-weight Fugacious back on turf. Gormanston could still have more to offer as well.

However, a chance is taken on the three-year-old CHRISTINES ANGEL, an eye-catcher last time and unexposed on her second handicap start.

17:55 Cayenne Pepper

Last year’s winner Tarnawa goes well fresh so the lack of a recent run is of no great concern, but marginal preference is for Irish Oaks runner-up CAYENNE PEPPER. She should appreciate this easier track and confirm Oaks placings with Passion.

Bolleville was a taking winner on her first start for Joseph O’Brien and could well take another step forward now upped in trip.
