IRISH JUMPS RACING TIPS – SUNDAY BEST BETS AT KILLARNEY & TIPPERARY
1:00 Tipperary – Joe Mac Novice Hurdle (Grade 3) (4yo+) 2m
ANNIE G is one of six last-time winners in this field and chasing a hat-trick of victories Henry De Bromhead’s charge gets the vote to come out on top here.
The Getaway mare is proving progressive over hurdles, twice making the frame which includes once over course and distance before registering successive victories at Listowel and Galway either side of a short break.
The latest of those victories came in a Listed contest where she ran out an eight lengths’ victor over Surprise Package and there’s likely more to come from her so every chance she can collect again and land the three-timer now.
2:20 Killarney – Killarney Plaza Hotel Rated Novice Hurdle (4yo+) 2m7f
ALLY CAY is 2-4 over hurdles, scoring both her wins at Down Patrick but John McConnell’s charge can strike again away from that venue and looks worth chancing here.
The Alhebayeb mare ran out a wide margin winner latest from Mars Harper, scoring by eleven lengths under this rider and there could be more to come on that evidence given how she travelled into the race before readily asserting to land the win.
A subsequent winner has come out of that race and she reopposes with Mars Harbour on worse terms than last time which ought to see the gap between them narrow. However she’s likely to have more to offer and is still unexposed over hurdles so every chance she can follow up that latest victory with another win.
3:15 Tipperary – McGrath Oil Emily Handicap Hurdle (4yo+ 80-95) 3m
GLENQUIN CASTLE is on a roll at present, winning his last three starts and Martin Brassil’s charge can continue his upward curve to strike again here.
The Getaway gelding has won his last three starts over fences at around this trip, latterly beating Avec Espoir at Wexford narrowly and going back over hurdles for this latest run she can continue her winning spree.
He’s a lightly-raced sort over timber but has failed to make the frame in any of his five starts over hurdles; however if he can bring his current good spell of chasing form back over hurdles then he ought to go well and he’s well-handicapped so a big run wouldn’t come as a surprise.
3:45 Tipperary – O’Dwyer Steel Dundrum Novice Chase (Grade 3) (4yo+) 2m4f
GIN ON LIME has been in good form over the summer, winning three times before seeing her winning run halted at the Galway Festival where she found reopposing Fan De Blues too strong by just one length.
Henry De Bromhead’s charge can turn those tables now however with the Doctor Dino mare now 7lbs better off with that rival and with the stiffer test of stamina likely to suit her better than the trip she ran over last time out.
She was only run down late by the eventual winner having tried to make all and she may have further improvement to come following a break so no surprise if she were to regain the winning thread here with Robbie Power up.
