16:30 – Zoom Tiger 

Zoom Tiger is an English import for Denis Hogan who was a winner at Wolverhampton for Andrew Balding. He’s run very well on his two Irish starts and should run very well dropped to claiming company. Here and Now is a big danger for James McAuley, who has another three in this race too.

17:00 – House of Kings 

A 1m 2f trip and there’s a case to be made for a lot of them. Lord Mczie stepped up from running over 5f to win at this trip last time and could go in again. Tooreen Angel is another course winner but does need things to drop right for her in running. House of Kings looked good value for his narrow defeat last time wen fourth to White Marlin. He’s due his turn now in a race where Paddy has extra places on offer.

17:30 -Talbot 

A mile handicap and I’m very keen on Joseph O’Brien’s Talbot. An English import for the trainer, he was a real eye-catcher on his first Irish start last time at Dundalk. A good draw in stall 7 should see him go really well.

18:00 – Spirit and Glory

Hadman has some very good two-year-old form but it did tail off a bit towards the end of last season. He’s been gelded and is making his seasonal debut and might just get caught out by Mick Mulvany’s filly Spirit and Glory who was a winner here on her last run over a mile. The drop to 7f shouldn’t be a problem and given her recent form and the weight she gets off Hadman – she’s the one for me.

 

18:30 – Boyne River 

A good opportunity for Boyne River to get off the mark as she’s ran really well on all her turf starts to date in decent maidens. The same quality of opposition isn’t on show tonight and the drop to 7f shouldn’t pose a problem either. She’s my nap of the night.

19:00 – International Lady 

An ultra-competitive 7f handicap where we may need the extra place that Paddy has on offer. I like course winner International Lady who has been running over 10f recently but is a winner at 7f in the past. She’s got a very good draw in stall three in comparison to some of them ahead of her in the market. Dylan Brown McMonagle rides and she looks a bit of value against the field.

19:30 – Pandemic Princess

We end the night with a relatively low-grade handicap where the three-year-old Pandemic Princess takes on her elders for the first time.  She was a winner over this 6f trip two starts back and the form of her third place over 5f last time has worked out well. She’s the one for me.
