RACING TIPS FOR SLIGO ON WEDNESDAY – IRISH HORSE RACING BEST BETS
2:10 Sligo – Leo McMorrow Memorial Novice Handicap Chase (4yo+) 2m1f
ALICE AVRIL gives the impression there is more to come over fences and Henry de Bromhead’s charge can get back to winning ways here.
The Balko filly was a winner in France over hurdles back in January prior to joining this yard and she has shaped well on all three starts over the larger obstacles, finishing third to the useful Druid’s Altar on her first start for this yard prior to a win at Roscommon in August.
She was far from disgraced in finishing a close fourth at Tramore when last seen although possibly found that race coming too soon nine days on from her triumph and a month off should have freshened her up.
Now making her handicap debut from potentially a very workable mark she ought to go well and can get back on the scoresheet here.
2:40 Sligo – Frank O’Beirne Memorial Handicap Chase (4yo+) 2m1f
GRANGE WALK is unexposed as a chaser with just three starts in this sphere under his belt and the Thewayyouare gelding is already a winner having struck at Limerick prior to tackling a decent prize at Galway latest where she fell three out when still travelling well and looking to get into contention.
John Ryan’s charge has seen the form of his earlier victory since franked by the runner-up going in next time and there’s likely more to come from him assuming that recent spill hasn’t dented his confidence.
A clear round ought to put him in the mix from just 1lb higher and no surprise if he were to quickly bounce back with a winning effort although this does looks a decent little content on his return from a short break.
3:15 Sligo – Brenda Anderson Memorial Beginners Chase (4yo+) 2m4½f
THAT’S LIFEBUOY has hit the crossbar the last twice in recent outings at Roscommon and Tramore over fences and the Fame And Glory mare could improve again in this sphere to get off the mark at the third attempt.
John Ryan’s charge hasn’t been beaten far on either of those occasions, finishing runner-up to Icee M B A on the first occasion and then going down only by a neck behind Twilight Girl latest and both those pieces of form stack up quite well.
She tackles the boys now for the first time over fences but likely has more to give in this sphere and she can run well again where she could get off the mark.
4:15 Sligo – Templehouse Lake Chase (4yo+) 2m4½f
BLACKSTAIR ROCCO could be one to keep on the right side of now the Shirocco gelding goes chasing and Emmet Mullins’ charge can make a winning switch to this sphere.
Placed in a point-to-point he showed some ability over hurdles, winning at Down Royal in June before posting successive runner-up efforts before a lesser effort on the flat and if he were to bring that level of hurdling form to the larger obstacles then he ought to go well.
He does give up valuable experience especially to the likes of the useful Antey and last-time winner Fancy Foundations, but his shrewd yard will likely have prepared him well for this and he could be the one to take in what looks a trappy contest despite the small field.
