16:50 – Hodd’s Girl

Limit Long is the only one to bring a course win to the table but there’s a suspicion he needs further than this. HODD’S GIRL is the preferred option. She recorded a career best on turf last time but she has some useful all-weather form to her name and it would be no surprise if she took to this test. Stablemate Pulse Of Shanghai is feasibly treated if he can bounced back.

17:20 – Samrogue

Teddy Boy was only beaten a neck in this race last year and he can go well again for a yard in form. However, narrow preference is for SAMROGUE who was impressive at Cork when last seen and her all-weather form suggests she may take to this surface.

17:55 – Praying Mantis (NAP)

This looks like a good opportunity for PRAYING MANTIS (nap) to land the hat-trick. She posted a career best when dropped back to this trip at Gowran last time and she arrives in better form than most of her rivals. Long-standing maiden Lion Ring might be the main danger after a return to form last time and Guessthebill is the type to bounce back from a below par run when last seen.

Laytown-Strand-2-(R)

18:25 – The Penny

True Artist has several runs in the form-book that would make him hard to beat here but he’s hard to put forward after refusing to race again last time. THE PENNY might be worth taking a chance on at a likely bigger price. She was a bit of an eyecatcher at the Curragh last time and has fewer miles on the clock than most in here. Coeur D’or might be able to resume progress with the yard hitting form.

18:55 – Mary Salome

A competitive handicap as is often the case here. The selection is MARY SALOME. She was fourth in this race last year off 9lb lower but is enjoying a fine season and it would be no surprise if she ran a big race. Dream Today is respected, as is Eloquent Arthur and Monzoon, while it would be no surprise if Chavajod bounced back to form on this surface. Royal Scholar deserves plenty of respect if getting a run.

19:25 – Alessandro Algardi

ALESSANDRO ALGARDI is streets clear of the field on ratings and this looks a simple task for him to get back to winning ways. Cordouan is the most interesting challenger on his first start for Ado McGuinness who has booked Patrick Mullins for the ride. These Days can fill the placings.
