IRISH RACING TIPS ON FRIDAY – BEST BETS AT BELLEWSTOWN & WEXFORD
5:15 Wexford – visitwexford.ie Maiden Hurdle (5yo+) 2m4½f
LEAC AN SCAIL LADY has yet to get off the mark but the Masterofthehorse mare remains one to be positive about and could open her account here having found only one too good over course and distance last month.
Henry De Bromhead’s charge was beaten around three lengths on that occasion behind Valentina Lady, unable to sustain her effort to the line having led over the final obstacle.
She’s finished runner-up however over further and she ought to give another good account here with the yard continuing in good fettle.
6:00 Bellewstown – Seamus Mulvaney, Crockafotha Fillies & Mares Handicap (3yo+ 50-80) 1m
WINDSOR PASS has yet to open her win account but the Lope De Vega filly has shown enough in her runs to date to suggest she can win races and Jessica Harrington’s charge can get off the mark now.
She finished a good runner-up at Leopardstown latest behind Hype, beaten a head by that rival last month where she was run down late and a repeat of that effort might prove good enough this time around to see her going one better.
She’s been nudged up a couple of pounds in the weights for that run, but it came in arguably a more competitive contest than this and she can get off the mark this time around.
7:15 Wexford – Support Local Stay Local Beginners Chase (5yo+) 2m4f
PREMIUM PACKAGE was a winner between the flags prior to joining forces with Henry De Bromhead and the Presenting gelding shaped well over hurdles including landing a win at Down Royal in August where he beat I’m So Busy by five lengths.
There was plenty to like about his chase debut at Punchestown in May where he found only one too good and there’d be no surprise to see him build on the experience gained there of the larger obstacles to go one better this time around with a tongue-tie now applied which could elicit some improvement.
7:30 Bellewstown – Prizm Financial Partners, Ardee Handicap (Div I) (3yo+ 45-65) 1m4f
NO TROUBLE hasn’t won for a while with his losing streak now standing at fifteen runs, but the No Nay Never gelding is chanced here to end his winless run having been shaping well in defeat recently.
John McConnell’s charge has made the frame in each of his last two starts, most recently finding only one too good at Limerick when denied by a half-length by Sequoiaspirit and he’s only up 1lb for that as he tackles what looks a winnable contest.
A repeat of that last outing ought to see him on the premises again and no surprise if he were to resume winning ways here.
