2:30 Roscommon – Thanks To All Our Frontline Workers Hurdle (4yo+) 1m7½f

RECENT REVELATIONS travelled well for a long way on his return at Tipperary recently and Gordon Elliott’s charge can get back on the scoresheet if building on that performance.

The Moohaajim gelding was a Cork winner back in January after which he faced stiff tasks but ran with credit in defeat, twice coming off worst behind Aramax which included in the Fred Winter Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival where he finished fourth.

Back from a break he was possibly just stretched by the longer trip when finishing one length runner-up behind Barrington Court and likely to be sharper for that run he can go one better here back down in trip.

4:30 Roscommon – Larry O’Farrelly Memorial Handicap Chase (4yo+) 2m½f

THISONESFOROLLIE found only one too good on her recent reappearance at Kilbeggan and Gordon Elliott’s charge can build on that effort to go one place better here.

A dual-winner over hurdles a couple of seasons past, she shaped quite well in a number of starts over fences last campaign; but her latest start was a definite step in the right direction over the larger obstacles and a 3lbs rise remains workable if she can build on that run.

The Scorpion mare wouldn’t need to improve too much on her form over fences thus far to play a part in this contest and she can make her presence felt with the drop back in trip likely to suit.

6:25 Killarney – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Cairn Rouge Stakes (Listed Race) (3yo+) 1m

CELESTIAL OBJECT kept some useful company last term, twice contesting in Listed company either side of registering a win at Leopardstown where the Galileo filly beat Soineanta readily.

Jessica Harrington’s charge returned from a break to contest a Group Three contest but she shaped as if she needed the run and she stepped up on that effort to post a very useful runner-up effort behind Know It All in the Derrinstown Stud Fillies’ Stakes where she was beaten just over two lengths.

That is decent form and she can progress again to take advantage of the return to Listed company where she could go close although this looks wide open and a case can be made for most of the field.

Nevertheless, she can make her presence felt with her yard continuing in decent form and she ought to be in the mix.

6:55 Killarney – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Fillies Maiden (3yo) 1m3f

A few interesting runners in this contest but the vote goes to THUNDER KISS who has hit the crossbar on both runs to date at Gowran Park and the Curragh latterly.

Ger Lyons’ charge was beaten only a half-lenght on that occasion behind Aunt Bee, showing the benefit of her debut experience and there’s likely more still to come from the Night Of Thunder filly now she goes up in trip.

She appeared as if a stiffer test might suit in that last run over ten furlongs and this extra half-mile could unlock further improvement so she is taken to progress again and she can get off the mark at the third attempt for her top yard
