IRISH HORSE RACING BEST BETS – ROSCOMMON RACING TIPS FOR TUESDAY
4:55 Roscommon – Adare Manor Opportunity Maiden Hurdle (5yo+) 2m5f
PAY THE FINE stepped up on his hurdles debut at Punchestown last October to produce a more assured effort back there in May following a break and the Arcadio gelding could take another forward step with that run under his belt.
Oliver McKiernan’s charge finished third on that occasion although eventually well beaten having mounted a challenge turning into the straight before fading and a last flight mistake made little difference to his prospects.
He did finish ahead of a subsequent winner however and likely to be sharper for that effort he ought to be in the mix here with a repeat.
5:25 Roscommon – Ballyleague Rated Novice Hurdle (4yo+) 2m5f
PALM BEACH had looked a progressive hurdler prior to being pulled up at Ballinrobe in May, but it is possible that Joseph O’Briens’ charge found that run coming too soon and he’s worth another chance given a bit more time between runs.
The Galileo gelding had won on the flat for Aidan O’Brien prior to switching to this yard where he finished runner-up in each of his first three starts over timber before getting off the mark at Kilbeggan on his reappearance in May.
He was well beaten at Ballinrobe when last seen, pulled up before the last having never really travelled from halfway although given that outing came just ten days on from his win the quick turnaround might well be a valid excuse.
He’s had more of a break this time and given his earlier progressive form he should make his presence felt here if bouncing back quickly.
5:55 Roscommon – Larry O’Farrelly Memorial Maiden Hurdle (Div I) (4yo+) 2m
PATRICKS HILL switches to hurdles following a pair of starts in bumpers where the Mahler gelding finished third on debut at Wexford before pulled up back there latest in May.
William Burke’s charge possibly found that too much of a test upped in trip on the heavy ground but he could do better switching to timber and dropping to the minimum distance on better underfoot conditions where there’d be little surprise in seeing him improve.
He has a good claimer taking over this time for his first foray over hurdles and this doesn’t look a particularly strong contest so he could go well if taking to obstacles.
6:25 Roscommon – Larry O’Farrelly Memorial Maiden Hurdle (Div II) (4yo+) 2m
POWERFUL OUT has shown some promise in a couple of runs over hurdles, finishing third on her latest outing at Navan last month and John Kiely’s charge can strike at the third attempt here.
A Tramore bumper winner last October and far from disgraced in a Grade Three bumper at Punchestown on her reappearance she also shaped quite well on her first hurdles start where she finished fifth to Banbridge and there’s likely more to come from the Presenting mare in the wake of that latest third place finish.
She didn’t help her cause last time when making a bad mistake two out when in contention but she had also met with some trouble in running and that run can be marked up as a result. It is likely she has a bit more to offer and no surprise if she were to make her presence felt here.
