IRISH RACING TIPS – BEST BETS AT BALLINROBE & TIPPERARY ON TUESDAY
3:10 Tipperary – TipperaryRacecourse.ie Handicap Hurdle (Div II) (4yo+ 80-95) 2m
JOHANNA YEATS has bounced back from a lesser run at Cork to finish third at Ballinrobe in April and the Yeats mare ran better than the bare result last time when fifth back at that venue over a much longer trip.
John Walsh’s charge steps back to two miles for this latest assignment as she bids to register a first win and the handicapper has eased her 1lb in the weights and she could go well if continuing her decent spell.
This doesn’t look the strongest of races and it wouldn’t be a surprise if she were to make her presence felt with Philip Enright taking over from a claiming rider.
3:45 Tipperary – Tipperary Town Handicap Hurdle (4yo+ 80-109) 2m
BRIDES HILL doesn’t have many miles on the clock and the Dylan Thomas filly stepped up on past efforts over hurdles when chasing one home at Ballinrobe in May, finishing just a half-length runner-up on her handicap debut.
Gavin Cromwell’s charge made a late mistake on that occasion which possibly didn’t help her as she was only run down late by the winner and headed in the last few strides. That form has taken a couple of knocks but the fifth has won since and there’s a suspicion she has a bit more to come.
Further improvement can’t be ruled out following just a 3lbs rise in the weights and taking on more exposed sorts here she could be the way to go as she bids for a first win.
6:45 Ballinrobe – www.McHale.net Handicap Hurdle (Div II) (4yo+ 80-95) 3m1f
ESTHERS MARVEL is still a maiden despite having had 16 attempts but the Oscar mare can finally break her duck here following a string of consistent efforts in defeat.
David Budds’ charge has only one finished out of the frame in her last five starts, most recently finishing a good third behind Merry Doyenne at Killarney earlier in the month, not helped by making a serious error three out which surely knocked the stuffing from her.
Both the eventual winner and runner-up have added further wins and she’s one of only a handful of horses who come into this race in any sort of form so she could go close with a repeat assuming she keeps the errors down.
5:45 Ballinrobe – McHale Mayo Handicap Hurdle (4yo+) 2m6f
FORTUNE STREET has filled the frame on each of his last three outings, winning at Wexford in April and most recently posting a good third behind Guiri at Punchestown later that same month.
The form of her earlier success however is working out quite well and Paul Nolan’s charge can continue to be competitive despite a 2lbs rise in the weights.
Mike O’Connor’s 7lbs claim is a big plus and effectively drops the Soldier Of Fortune’s mark to 111 here so another big run wouldn’t come as a surprise over this extra couple of furlongs and she can get back on the scoresheet.
