Sunday Irish racing best bets at Naas

Sunday’s Irish horse racing action sees jumps racing going to post and we’ve picked out our Sunday racing best bets at Naas on a quality racecard.

Assuming the fixture survives an inspection for the day’s Sunday’s Irish horse racing meeting we’ve looked over a quality racecard in Ireland which includes Grade Three action at the fixture and we pick out our Sunday racing best bets at Naas on an eight-race card.

Featuring the Grade Three Limestone Lad hurdle as the day’s highlight we’re looking to find a few winners on the card.


1:15 Naas – Limestone Lad Hurdle (Grade 3) (5yo+) 1m7½f

BEACON EDGE is still relatively unexposed as a hurdler and the Doyen gelding has already shown a very good level of ability, winning three of his six starts over timber.

Runner-up in a Grade Two contest here last February he landed a brace of wins following his reappearance with wins at Downpatrick and Galway prior to getting to within a length of Honeysuckle in the Hattons Grace Hurdle when last seen at Fairyhouse.

He had won a Grade Three the time before where he gave 5lbs and a beating to reopposing Grand Roi and that form has been boosted since; he lost no caste in defeat subsequently and dropping back to two miles will be of no issue to Noel Meade’s charge so he could be set for a big run.

1:45 Naas – I.N.H. Stallion Owners EBF Maiden Hurdle (Div I) (5yo+) 2m3f

LIMESTONE ROCK has shown up well on both his starts thus far, finding only one too good on debut in a Leopardstown bumper and then posting a very good third when switched to hurdles over this course earlier in the month.

Mouse Morris’ charge was beaten around five lengths on that occasion, keeping on at one pace but likely to be sharper for the experience and he can progress upped in trip for this latest outing.

Open to improvement for his in-form yard he ought to make his presence felt and no surprise to see him going close in this contest.

3:15 Naas – Naas Racecourse Business Club Novice Chase (Grade 3) (5yo+) 3m1f

Smart hurdler ESCARIA TEN has taken well to chasing this term, facing a difficult task on his chase debut at Fairyhouse but running with credit to finish fifth to Monkfish and then building on that outing to score at Thurles in December.

Gordon Elliott’s charge possibly needed the run on his reappearance over a trip probably sharp enough for him, but the form is strong with the winner, third and fourth all going on to score wins since and he ran out a ready winner latest from Ministerforsport where he had twenty lengths to spare.

Open to further improvement he probably needs to find a bit more in order to take this Grade Three prize, but he’s very much one likely to progress and he can make his presence felt here with stamina assured in the testing ground.

3:45 Naas – Tipper Road Novice Handicap Chase (5yo+) 2m4½f

STORMY JUDGE found only one too good last time at Limerick on just his third chase start and Pat Fahy’s charge can get off the mark now.

The Fairly Ransom gelding was beaten around eight lengths behind Dinny Lacey, no match for the winner but holding on well for second and that winner acquitted himself well subsequently in a Grade Three contest.

He had fallen the time before in another decent contest and switching now to the handicap ranks he can make his presence felt upped in trip.
