We’re chasing more Monday winners with our Irish horse racing tips and best bets for the day’s meetings at Limerick and Kilbeggan.

Two more Irish horse racing meetings go to post on Monday afternoon and evening with action on the flat from Limerick; while over the sticks there is a twilight fixture at Kilbeggan. In all 16 races take place over the day’s pair of Irish fixtures.

Our Irish horse racing tips have been in good form and we found a few winners over the course of the past week; we’ve turned our attention now to Monday’s fixtures and we give our best bets for the meetings at Limerick and Kilbeggan.


2:40 Limerick – It’s Good To Be Back At Limerick Handicap (Div I) (3yo 45-65) 1m

This won’t take much winning and SLADE RUNNER looks worth chancing in a poor contest to get off the mark.

The Slade Power colt showed glimmers of ability for John Oxx last campaign and his latest run behind Mowgli at Fairyhouse looked a step back in the right direction on his third start for Adrian McGuinness.

He was beaten only two lengths into fourth over six furlongs that day despite being slowly away and the shorter trip might have proven too sharp for him. He’s back over one mile here and very unexposed at the trip having raced only once over the distance on the all-weather at Dundalk.

Also third on an earlier run from a higher mark than this he ought to make his presence felt here and every chance he can break his duck under Colin Keane to get Monday’s Irish horse racing tips off to a winning start..

4:45 Limerick – Fedamore Handicap (4yo+ 50-70) 1m4f

MARMOLATA ran a couple of thirds for Ger Lyons last term, latterly finishing just a head adrift of Pocotaligo in a Dundalk claimer prior to joining Emmet Mullins.

The Palavicini filly finished off that race well, just failing to get up having been held up off the pace, and she could be suited by this much stiffer test with a first-time hood deployed now as she steps into a handicap for the first time.

An opening mark of 66 looks very workable given the form she showed last term for her previous handler and she can show some improved form stepping up in distance now tried in headgear.

5:10 Kilbeggan – Tullamore (C & G) Maiden Hurdle (4yo+) 2m4f

SOMPTUEUX faced some stiff tests in maidens last term following his move out of the point-to-point sphere; Henry de Bromhead’s charge however looks worth chancing to get off the mark returning from a break.

The Spirit One gelding had finished runner-up in an Irish point-to-point for Stuart Crawford prior to joining this yard and he hinted at some ability in a couple of outings at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown in decent maiden contests although he disappointed when last seen at Punchestown.

He might have had excuses that day where the trip and ground were both likely against him and this longer trip and better ground may see him a better light. He’s highest rated here but can compete from level weights and Rachael Blackmore might be able to conjure a win from him in an ordinary contest.

We're backing Rachael Blackmore in our Irish horse racing tips to ride a winner at Kilbeggan.

6:45 Kilbeggan – Follow Kilbeggan On Twitter Handicap Hurdle (Div II) (4yo+ 80-102) 2m

DAWSON’S COTTAGE ran his best race when returning from a break and the Oscar gelding might be worth chancing to do the same again returning from eight months off the track.

Niall Madden’s charge had come back from a similar break at Punchestown last October to get to within three-parts of a length of Shumaker, arguably unlucky not to win having been tightened up at a crucial point before finishing off well.

That form has thrown up several subsequent winners and he ran better than the bare result when last seen out four weeks on at Fairyhouse. Eventually finishing sixth to Solar Heat, he had travelled well into the contest before finding little and the heavy ground possibly just found him out.

He has less testing ground to deal with here and given his best career start to date has come on the back of an absence on similar ground to this then he looks worth chancing to post a big run in a winnable race.
