On-track action continues at Tipperary this afternoon, and Paddy Power Racing Trader Ryan McCue has cast his eye over those three races, and you can see his best bets below.
Oisin Orr won the Irish St Leger at the weekend on Search For A Song, and he’s a really promising young rider. He rides OVERHEER in this, who is my selection for the race.
He has been progressing with each run, but found Ballinrobe a little bit tight last time out over the same trip. A more open track like Tipperary should help him.
He has a few lengths to make up on the main danger, Rock On Seamie, but he’s a couple of pounds better off so I’m hoping that will see him turn the tables.

I think this is the best bet on the card, as this looks a very ordinary contest. I am fairly confident the top weight NAM will have too much for the rest.
He was backed as favourite last time out at Galway and finished in fourth on that occasion. He’s down a couple of pounds from that run and young Joey Sheridan takes the ride here. I expect them to be very tough to beat.
I think a lot of people lost a few quid on him at Galway where he was heavily backed and ended up going off as odds-on favourite. He disappointed that day and only ran okay last time out at Down Royal but with those two runs under his belt I’m hoping to see a much-improved display off a mark of 77, which looks well within his reach considering his really good novice hurdling form.
If he can bounce back to some of the form he’s shown in the last year, the mark definitely looks in his favour.
