We look over the two scheduled race meetings in Ireland on Wednesday and give our racing tips for Leopardstown and Tipperary.

Racing returns following a day off on Tuesday and Wednesday’s Irish fixture list of horse racing action sees two meetings going to post and there is action on the flat at Leopardstown where two Group Three races are on the card. Meanwhile, Tipperary race over the sticks.

A total of 16 races will unfold during Wednesday’s Irish racing action and we’re looking for more winners with our racing tips for Leopardstown and Tipperary following a Monday double.


1:30 Tipperary – Bet 10 Get 20 With MansionBet Hurdle (4yo+) 2m4f

The jumping of RECENT REVELATIONS leaves something to be desired, but the Moohaajim gelding gave a suggestion that there was a bigger effort in him when finishing fourth in the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival and a repeat of that performance might be good enough here.

Gordon Elliott’s charge was a Cork winner over hurdles at the beginning of the year on his fourth start following a short break and he built on that performance to chase down Aramax next time at Naas prior to his Cheltenham run.

That winner went on to land the aforementioned Fred Winter Hurdle at the Festival so it looks very solid form and this step up in trip could unlock further improvement in the Elliott runner. A mark of 130 leaves him with scope for better still and if he can brush up on his jumping then it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him back in the winners’ enclosure under Davy Russell.

3:30 Tipperary – MansionBet Proud to Support Irish Racing Beginners Chase (4yo+) 2m3½f

This could prove a good opportunity for I’M A GAME CHANGER to get off the mark over fences with the Arcadio gelding likely to benefit from what looks an easier assignment to those he has faced thus far over the larger obstacles.

A hurdles winner for Philip Hobbs, he’s had four starts over fences since joining Gordon Elliot which include some lofty tests of his credentials. Finishing runner-up in the Klairon Davis Chase at Navan in December is arguably the best piece of form available in this contest although he was disappointing when last seen in the Flyingbolt Chase where he beat only one home.

This is easier dropping into maiden company on his reappearance and he’s run well fresh in the past so could be set for a big run on his return to action. His hurdles win came over this longer trip and if his jumping holds up it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a bold showing here from the eight-year old.

4:55 Leopardstown – Derrinstown Stud Fillies Stakes (Group 3) (3yo) 1m

This is easier than the recent assignments SO WONDERFUL has been contesting and Aidan O’Brien’s charge ought to prove a tough nut to crack dropping in grade.

The War Front filly has yet to win a race, but she has placed in six of her ten career outings including twice finishing third in Group One races either side of a break at the Curragh. The latest of those came in the Irish 1000 Guineas and she was latterly far from disgraced in the Coronation Stakes during Royal Ascot where she finished fourth.

She drops back in grade here into a Group Three and with 7lbs and more in hand of these rivals on official ratings she rates a major player and she can finally get off the mark here to land a winner for our racing tips for Leopardstown.

5:25 Leopardstown – Amethyst Stakes (Group 3) (3yo) 1m

This looks a good opportunity for SINAWANN to get back on the winning trail having run well in sixth on his recent return in the Irish 2000 Guineas.

Mick Halford’s charge showed progressive form as a juvenile, winning at the second attempt with a Curragh success over this trip before stepping up to Group Two company for the KPMG Champions Juvenile Stakes where only Mogul proved too strong.

The Kingman colt was possibly just in need of that Guineas return where he was beaten around five lengths behind Siskin; but he’ll be much sharper now with that under his belt and this is easier dropping down to a Group Three.

He sets the standard here on that run, while his runner-up behind Mogul is a solid piece of form and he should prove tough to beat here with his sights lowered.
