IRISH RACING BEST BETS – NAAS RACING TIPS ON WEDNESDAY
4:50 Naas – Sean Barrett Bloodstock Insurances Ltd Handicap (3yo+ 50-80) 6f
PARKERS HILL gave notice on his last outing that his return to the winners’ enclosure might not be too far away and Leanne Breen’s charge is taken to resume winning ways here.
The No Nay Never gelding struck his last career win over this course and distance last June when rated 74 and his latest third at Navan behind Amazing Emma was a good effort over the minimum trip given he’d got loose prior to the start.
He can race here from the same mark as last time out where the return to six furlongs will be in his favour and this doesn’t look as strong a race as the one he contested last time out so there’d be no surprise in seeing him deliver a big effort here where he can get back on the scoresheet.
5:20 Naas – Yeomanstown Stud Irish EBF Stakes (Listed Race) (3yo+) 6f
TERESA MENDOZA had been steadily progressive prior to turning in a below par effort at Deauville earlier in the month but it may be worth siding with the Territories filly to bounce back here.
Ken Condon’s charge had been a debut winner last term at the Curragh before stepping into Pattern company where she’s largely acquitted herself well, making the frame on a number of occasions in Group Three and Listed races including finding only Romantic Proposal too good two runs ago in a Listed contest back at the Curragh.
For whatever reason she didn’t give her running last time she could well quickly bounce back here with a better effort and every chance she can make her presence felt in this race.
5:50 Naas – Arqana Irish EBF Marwell Stakes (Listed Race) (2yo) 5f
PENNINE HILLS looked a potentially smart sort when scoring readily on her debut and the Kodiac filly can step up for the experience gained on that occasion to double her tally and maintain her perfect record.
Joseph O’Brien’s charge struck by the thick end of three lengths over Concert Hall, making all the running and staying on well to register a cosy victory; that runner-up has won since to boost the form and the selection is sure to improve on the back of that effort which will have taught her plenty.
Given how she ran she ought to have no issue with this drop in trip and it wouldn’t be a huge shock if she were to find sufficient improvement to make her mark at this higher level.
8:00 Naas – Naas Racecourse Handicap (3yo+) 1m
DREAM TALE could send backers home happy in the finale and Andrew Oliver’s charge ought to go close if continuing his good spell of form.
The Shamardal gelding was a winner two starts ago at Limerick having finished runner-up the time before at Leopardstown when beaten less than one lengths and he looked a little unlucky not to win at the Curragh last month when beaten a half-length by Sirjack Thomas, hampered when trying to come with his challenge before running on and just failing to overhaul the winner.
He has a bit more to do from this higher rating with the handicapper applying some pressure with a 4lbs rise, but he’s been running consistently well of late and he ought to continue to make his presence felt here.
