MONDAY IRISH HORSE RACING – DUNDALK ALL-WEATHER TIPS

JACK BERRY HOUSE has hit the crossbar in each of his last two starts, beaten a half-length and neck respectively and the Harbour Watch gelding can get back on the winning trail here.
Having ended his time with George Boughey with a win at Wolverhampton, he joined forces with John McConnell and has taken a little time to find his feet with his new yard. However his last two runs have been much more encouraging and having been denied by the narrowest of margins in his latest outing he could go one better now.
Not helped by a poor draw and having to race wide when last seen here five days ago he just failed to get up having stayed on well from a poor position and the handicapper has eased him 1lb for this latest contest where Shane Foley takes over the reins.

It might be worth chancing ISEEBREEZE to get back on the scoresheet and double his win tally having been running better than the bare result in recent times.
The Frozen Power mare has just one win to her name which came over this course and distance back in March 2019 when trained by Anthony Mulholland; she’s largely struggled to match that level since but she has run a number of encouraging races although overall she’s been a little consistent.
That said, she has found the frame in two of her last three outings, latterly getting to within a half-length of Emphatic over this course and distance earlier in the campaign where she was run down late by the winner.
However she had travelled well for most of the way and might just have made her effort too soon. Racing off the same mark and with Shane Foley taking over in the saddle she might be able to go one better this time.

This doesn’t look as strong a contest as division one of this heat and it might pay to side with PRAYING MANTIS who found some improvement switched to this venue and surface earlier in the month where the Epaulette filly gained her first in-the-frame finish when beaten just under two lengths by Jackmel.
John Feane’s charge had looked only moderate on turf prior to that better effort, but those lesser runs were on soft ground which might not have suited and a quicker surface perhaps saw her in a better light.
She’s been eased a further 2lbs in the ratings and a repeat of that last outing might be enough to see her get off the mark now.
