Fairyhouse 12:45

Quite a tricky contest and stamina will be important after the heavy recent rain. Fauguernon is not a certain stayer, nor is Hostage To Fortune. BRAWLER is a speculative pick on his debut for Dot Love. He likes this place. 

Fairyhouse 13:15

ROCK ON BARNEY (nap) is thriving and taken to complete the hat-trick. If Offshore Oscar were anywhere near his best he’d go close

Fairyhouse 13:45

A really competitive maiden. TOUGHARI was a revelation on the level last time here and might be worth chancing despite the lack of blinkers today. Jeff Kidder and Sideshift are very solid.

Fairyhouse 14:15

An interesting maiden. Fakiera is respected and Clondaw Bertie should go well. GABYNAKO ran a blinder last time and can go one better.

Fairyhouse 14:45

They don’t come much weaker than this, but even weak races have interesting points, and without doubt the focal point here will be the debut of KLASSY KAY (nap) for Willie Mullins.

She shaped well on her last two starts for Dermot McLoughlin, and putting aside Mullins’ knack of improving them, she probably won’t need to have progressed a whole lot in any case. The Dreams Alive is the obvious danger, whilst Chosen Flower could also be a bit of value to hit the frame.

Fairyhouse 15:15

Running Skeard has obvious credentials on the back two solid recent performances in handicaps, the latest a close fourth at Thurles in a decent contest behind Molly Kaye. A line of form through the third Fair Minded, suggests YOU SAY NOTHING could give her plenty to think about here all the same.

The latter clearly failed to see out the trip upped to 2m5f at Galway on his recent start, but this is clearly more his bag. Influential Lady is another one to strongly consider, whilst at a price Shes Gold could also play a part.

Fairyhouse 15:45

An open enough looking contest but FIGHTING FIT should live up to his name on the back of a pleasing enough fourth at Punchestown on his first start since January.

A lightly raced five-year-old, he is one of very few here with the potential to improve a bit above his present mark. Wadiyatink Now crashed out at Sligo but she remains a big danger on her Listowel win, whilst Lady McCabe and Cailean’s Angel are others to note. 

Fairyhouse 16:15

Glenveagh Park showed enough on her debut when fourth at Punchestown to suggest she will be winning before long. She ticks a lot of the right boxes here and will most likely to be difficult to contain, but slight preference is for FAME AND JOY.

Solid in two runs so far, her race fitness could be decisive and her form is also pretty solid. Nelly’s Money and Royal Kahala are others to take on board.
