Fans of Irish horse racing have another fixture to try to find a few winners with a meeting on the flat where eight races will go to post throughout the afternoon which includes Listed action with the Navigation Stakes being the main event of the afternoon.

Also featuring some competitive handicap and maiden action our tipping team has looked over the day’s flat racing to pick out our Cork tips on Tuesday and best bets for the day in Ireland.


1:15 Cork – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden (2yo) 6f

ECOUTEZ offered plenty to work on when finishing third on debut at Navan last month, finishing with running left having raced green early and taking some time to find her stride. However with that under her belt the Exceed and Excel filly can improve to get off the mark at the second attempt.

Jessica Harrington had her string in excellent form during last week’s Listowel Harvest Festival and the selection was beaten less than two lengths in that debut where both horses which finished ahead of her had the benefit of experience.

This extra furlong ought to suit on her second outing and entitled to improve for the experience she can go close.

3:00 Cork – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies & Mares Handicap (3yo+ 50-80) 6f

ROXETTE posted her only career win to date at this venue back in April, but while she’s failed to add to her tally since she has run some good races in defeat including back here in June and latest last month where she’s finished runner-up on both occasions.

This track clearly suits the daughter of Holy Roman Emperor and she could be capable of reversing form from last time with Pretty Smart on revised terms where she is 6lbs better off with jockey claims considered for just two lengths.

Given she also raced on the unfavoured part of the track that effort can be upgraded and she could be capable of going one better here.

3:35 Cork – Fermoy Maiden (3yo+) 7f

NEW YORK ANGEL has made the frame on both her starts to date and Johnny Murtagh’s charge can strike at the third attempt here.

The Zoffany filly offered something to work on when finishing runner-up at Naas in March where she was just over one length behind Empress Josephine in a race that has worked out really well since with the winner going on to Group One glory whine the fourth has won three of their next four stars including a Group Two.

Arguably unlucky not to win at Gowran Park in May she returns from a break holding solid claims of a victory given her form and the yard can ready one so an absence needn’t be a huge concern so a big run wouldn’t come as a surprise here on her reappearance.

4:05 Cork – Navigation Stakes (Listed Race) (3yo+) 1m

ERZINDJAN was a winner at Gowran Park back in April and while things haven’t gone to plan for Dermot Weld’s charge since he has been contesting in better company than this and he remains a smart sort.

The Lope De Vega colt is a course winner having struck here on just his second career start last September over seven furlongs and having twice placed in Group company following that latest win in April he returned here to finish third in a Listed race where he wasn’t seen to best effect.

Only beaten two lengths last time despite only crossing the line in seventh place behind Real Appeal he could make the most of this easier opportunity to get back to winning ways at a venue he’s run well at in the past and with conditions likely to be in his favour.

Cork tips on Tuesday. Trainer Dermot Weld can win the day's feature race.

4:35 Cork – Thank You To All The Frontline Workers Handicap (3yo+) 1m

RIVER DERWENT is lightly raced and still unexposed in comparison to this field of rivals and Joseph O’Brien’s charge can go one better than his latest near miss at Galway three weeks ago.

Formerly with David Simcock the Kingman colt ran out a narrow winner over Mutasarref at Leopardstown in August and that one has since franked the form with a win at Listowel last week. He then found only one too good in Casanova at Galway latest and that one has also given the form a boost with a Punchestown win prior to being placed in Listed company next time.

There’s surely better to come from him and he enters the handicap ranks from a potentially workable mark so every chance he can go close here with improvement anticipated.
