Horse Racing tips: This 9/2 play could make your day at Gowran Park

The Racing Post's top tipsters break it down race-by-race and fancy recent winner Indiana Grey to follow up.

Gowran Park Flat


Gowran Park 14:05

An interesting enough opener. Baron Wild is the obvious place to start after winning a Dundalk nursery on Friday, while others with decent handicap form such as White Pepper, Creative Mojo and Tiger Mylk certainly come into it. A chance is taken though with PERILOUS on her handicap debut from a stable in fine form with a top claimer booked.

Gowran Park 14:35

A fair bit of deadwood here. Towards the top of the handicap, South Forest and Breaking News come here on the back of narrow handicap defeats and make plenty of appeal. It might pay to side though with INDIANA GREY who came late to snatch a similar contest at Limerick last week and should be well capable of going close off a 6lb higher mark.

Gowran Park 15:05

Ballydoyle has a fine recent record in this race and they pose an intriguing dilemma for punters here with the once-raced ROMAN EMPIRE and Serpentine’s full-brother King Of The Castle, who is making his debut. Jockey bookings point to the former although the latter has a pedigree more in keeping with this sort of stamina test for a two-year-old. Mcpherson looks the obvious danger after a fine debut run behind the selection’s stablemate High Definition at the Curragh although he tired in the closing stages then and this heavy ground could stretch his stamina.

Gowran Park 15:35

An interesting maiden which could produce a few winners. The expensively bought Martinique is an obvious starting point, but a couple of her opponents showed a lot of promise on debut. Aurora Princess will come on for her debut at Thurles, but one with even more potential scope for improvement is PORT SUNLIGHT who was pretty green on debut at Navan and might just be good enough.

Gowran Park 16:05

Reunited with Colin Keane, ROCKVIEW EMPRESS could get back on track here on ground she handles. Starting Monday seems sure to be thereabouts, while cheekpieces could help Slieve Bernagh and Dancing Zebedee is a potential improver now dropped in trip, having travelled strongly for a long way before tiring over further last time.

Gowran Park 16:35

Many eyes will be on the 1.2m guineas yearling buy Pendant, making a belated debut, but perhaps best to stick with proven form and LADY DAHLIA looks a likely type back in maiden company after being set a very stiff task in a Listed contest last time. Her Galway second to stablemate Pista over this trip on soft ground at Galway augurs well and she is less exposed than many. With stamina concerns persisting for both Rosa Albertine and Tejano, La Joya may prove next best.

Gowran Park 17:05

The penny took a fair while to drop but the manner in which EVENING PRIMROSE (nap) finished her race at Thurles suggests there could well be more to come from the well-bred filly. Wolf Prince could be well handicapped back on the flat but the lack of a recent run in this ground could be a problem, while the ex John Gosden-trained Swift Verdict is very interesting now with Willie Mullins and Colin Keane booked. Dawn Over Owning is another to consider.
