Tom Mullins’ Nam needs to bounce back from a below par run at Tipperary last time but looks well handicapped on some of his best form. He’s a previous course winner at the Dublin venue last August and was a close-up fourth to Mulzaam at Galway before that Tipperary run.
Gavin Ryan takes off a valuable 3lb with his claim so all things considered, I’d be hopeful he can go close.
Sestriere has been getting out-paced over five and six furlongs so the step up to seven furlongs for Friday night’s contest should help. She remains a maiden after 20 runs, but the extra trip can help her break her duck at the 21st time of asking for Kevin Prendergast and Chris Hayes.
It didn’t look a strong maiden that Sindhia won at this venue last time, but she gets in off a low weight and can go close. There’s good prize money on offer here, but it doesn’t look the strongest of contests and Michael Haford’s runner looks well placed to replicate her course and distance maiden win of two weeks ago on her handicap debut.
