Gowran Park Horse Racing Tips – Saturday,  November 20

Saturday’s Irish horse racing comes from Gowran Park where they host a seven-race card, Including the return and chasing debut of Bob Olinger at 12:00. Our Irish expert has selected these top bets on the card which you can check out below. 

Fan De Blues (13:03 Gowran Park) 

Ilikedwayurthinkin has been in good form recently winning events at Ballinrobe and Galway and will look to complete a hat-trick. However, the seven-year-old drops back in distance and may find FAN DE BLUES hard to beat. 

Willie Mullins six-year-old had previously run well in some decent handicap events behind the likes of 152 rated stablemate Asterion Forlonge at Punchestown back in April. 

Fan De Blues took the rise up in grade in his stride earlier this year as he won a Grade 3 Novice Chase at Galway from the useful Gin On Lime of Henry De Bromhead’s. That represented Gin On Lime’s only defeat in her last six starts over fences.

Despite shouldering top-weight, Fan De Blues should be able to give weight and a beating to this field. 

Saint Felicien (14:13 Gowran Park) 

This should be an informative little contest and many punters will be on the side of Dark Voyager who has solid form already in the book on Irish soil, finishing third in a Listed hurdle in July before finishing second to Autumn Evening last time out. A mark of 131 would mean one of the other runners in the race would have to be pretty special to get by the four-year-old but that could be the case with SAINT FELICIEN.

The French import was last seen winning a hurdle race at Auteuil in March on his only start to date. The four-year-old sauntered clear of his opposition that day and had a future Listed winner well beaten in second when winning by eight lengths. 

Saint Felicien could be another exciting prospect for Gordon Elliot and it will be fascinating to see how he goes on Saturday. 

Cullaghs Star (14:48 Gowran Park) 

Both Young Fitzy and Lake Chad have to be respected in their respected current form but there was plenty to like about CULLAGHS STAR and his Maiden hurdle win last time out at Wexford. 

Cullaghs Star sat handy last time before taking the lead two from home and staying on strongly in the closing stages to record a first success. That form has substance to it as both the second and third that day has gone on to win since, both in comfortable fashion. 

Now making his Handicap debut, there should be more to come from Cullaghs Star and he looks a leading player now only up 4lb in the weights from his recent victory.
