Tipperary tips on Wednesday

Another meeting comes to us from Ireland on Wednesday evening where there is flat racing action and we’ve looked over the day’s card to pick out our Tipperary tips on Wednesday.

Irish horse racing action continues on Wednesday with another fixture on the level, this time from Tipperary where eight races await punters including Listed action with the Tipperary Stakes which spearheads the evening racecard at the Irish track.

Also featuring some competitive handicap action we’ve taken a look over the evening’s action and picked out our Tipperary tips for Wednesday and best bets on the card.


5:15 Tipperary – Coolmore Ten Sovereigns Tipperary Stakes (Listed Race) (2yo) 5f

AMALFI COAST is given another chance having struggled to get competitive in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot, but Aidan O’Brien’s charge had previously looked progressive and the Showcasing colt is likely better than he was able to show.

Fifth on debut where he was green he had improved his performances with each subsequent start, finishing runner-up at Cork next time before getting off the mark at the third attempt there when gaining a head victory over Diamant Damhsa.

He made all that day and perhaps wasn’t suited by how the race developed last time although there’s a question mark whether he might be better over further than this five furlongs. He can do better nonetheless back in a smaller field and no surprise if he were to make his presence felt here.

Tipperary tips for Wednesday. Aidan O'Brien can get amongst the winners.

5:45 Tipperary – Thank You To The Frontline Workers Apprentice Handicap (3yo+ 45-70) 5f

ART OF UNITY ran better than the bare result when finishing sixth at Down Royal eleven days ago and it might be worth chancing the Mazameer gelding to bounce back here.

John Feane’s charge had made a winning reappearance from a break when scoring at Navan in May and almost following up back there next time where he was beaten only a head by Lord Mczie.

Latterly he was beaten around two lengths at Down Royal but he had to be made use of early and possibly made his effort to win the race too soon having tried to assert at the two furlong pole before being overhauled in the last furlong and losing places.

He’s been dropped 2lbs since by the handicapper and this apprentice riders’ contest sees the excellent Sam Ewing take the reins where the jockey can claim a further 2lbs so he’s weighted to run a big race and no surprise to see him thereabouts.

6:45 Tipperary – Glenvale Stud Race (2yo) 7½f

MARITIME WINGS made a good first impression when scoring on his debut at Leopardstown earlier in the month and with further improvement expected Joseph O’Brien’s charge can double up here.

The Gleneagles colt was green early, slow to leave the stalls and outpaced early; but he got into contention at halfway and while he ran wide into the straight he showed plenty of determination to challenge and overhaul the long-time leader to win a shade cosily.

He’s sure to come on for that experience and while he’s penalised here for that win he could prove equal to the task and every chance he can follow up that win given the performance last time hinted he could be smart.

Declan McMonagle’s 5lbs claim helps to offset his penalty and there’d be no surprise to see him turn in a big effort here.

7:15 Tipperary – @tipperaryraces Handicap (3yo 45-70) 1m1f

GOING IN STYLE has shown enough in his starts to suggest he can pick up a small race and while his form figures to date aren’t inspiring it might be worth chancing Noel Meade’s charge to find some improvement now he goes up in trip.

The Dream Ahead gelding has yet to finish better than seventh in any of his runs to date, the latest of which came behind Larado at Leopardstown where he was beaten three lengths.

He gave the impression that he might be suited by a stiffer test so it is little surprise that he is stepped up in distance for this latest outing and the application of cheekpieces for the first time could help him elicit some further improvement.

This doesn’t look a particularly strong race and he likely wouldn’t need to find too much progress in order to take a hand at the business end and he could open his account now.
