WEDNESDAY TIPS FOR NAAS – IRISH HORSE RACING BEST BETS
5:00 Naas – JF Dunne Insurances Business Club Handicap (3yo) 6f
NO MORE PORTER ran out a ready winner on his handicap debut at the Curragh earlier in the month and the Elzaam gelding can follow up here despite a hefty rise in the weights for that success.
John Feane’s charge beat off Mary Salome by almost three lengths on that last outing, scoring a shade readily and he’s seen that form boosted since with the runner-up winning next time as well as finish runner-up again at Cork when last seen.
The lightly-raced sort could have more to offer as a handicapper although the handicapper certainly hasn’t missed him with a hefty 15lbs rise in the handicap although Siobhan Rutledge can claim 7lbs and good value for her allowance leaving the gelding on a relative feather-weight.
This is a tougher race but he could prove to have further progression to come handicapping and he can go well here if able to build on that recent win.
5:30 Naas – Naas Racecourse Handicap (Div I) (3yo+ 45-65) 6f
KARLSBERG caught the eye on her handicap debut at the Curragh earlier in the month, finishing well for third behind No More Porter who could give the form a boost in the preceding race and the Coulsty filly could build on that better run here where she can get off the mark.
Shane Crawley’s charge was given too much to do in that contest, but she made eye-catching late gains and could do better yet if building on that improved performance.
The handicapper saw enough to raise her 5lbs for that outing which might seem a bit harsh, but the way she travelled in the race before running on all too late hinted at better to come and she was less than one length behind the runner-up who has won since.
She carried 2lbs overweight on that occasion and with the likelihood of further progress she looks worth chancing to run a big race where she can go close here.
6:30 Naas – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Naas Oaks Trial (Listed Race) (3yo) 1m2f
HOLLY GOLIGHTLY represents a yard in decent form and the Gleneagles filly can get back to winning ways here.
A Gowran Park winner in May when beating Friendly by two lengths Ger Lyons’ charge subsequently found only one too good at the Curragh latest when beaten just one length by Create Belief where she didn’t help her cause by racing freely and she possibly didn’t quite get home as a result in the testing ground.
She has to prove as effective on much quicker ground this time around but the form of that latest run is working out well with the winner since going in at Royal Ascot with a win in the Sandringham Stakes, while the fourth horse home has scored a subsequent Ballinrobe victory.
The yard also saddles Party House who is partnered by Colin Keane who presumedly had the choice of the Lyons-trained pair; but Gary Carroll is a very able deputy and this longer trip could well suit the daughter of Gleneagles who can progress again and make her presence felt in this higher grade.
7:00 Naas – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies & Mares Maiden (3yo+) 1m
APRES TOI didn’t quite build on the promise she had shown on debut at Leopardstown in April but Dermot Weld’s charge is given another chance and can do better here.
Fifth on debut behind Acanella the Frankel filly may have found ten furlongs on heavy ground stretching her stamina when filling the same position latest at Fairyhouse; but back down in trip and on a better surface she could bounce back with a better effort.
Unable to land a blow last time behind The Blue Brilliant, crossing the line almost 15 lengths adrift, she could still be capable of better and the conditions of this race may prove more to her liking and she’s worth another chance to build on the promise she had shown on her debut.
