IRISH RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR TIPPERARY ON 24 MARCH
1:25 Tipperary – Ormond Mares Point-To-Point INH Flat Race (4-5yo) 2m2f
DERRYLINDA hails from a top yard and the Soldier Of Fortune filly could make her presence felt in this sphere at the first time of asking.
Gavin Cromwell’s charge fetched €30,000 as a three-year old at the sales and she’s related to a couple of useful hurdlers so she could be up to the task of delivering a big performance on her debut.
1:55 Tipperary – Lisronagh Point-To-Point INH Flat Race (4yo) 2m2f
Colin Bowe has a decent record in these events and SEATTLE SEAHAWK could be the one to side with here especially if the market speaks in his favour.
The Presenting gelding is a half-brother to multiple-Grade One winner Benefficient so is bred to be decent and while this looks a wide-open contest he ought to go well for his top yard in this sphere.
3:05 Tipperary – Nenagh (C & G) Point-To-Point INH Flat Race (Div I) (5yo) 2m3½f
UPPING THE ANTI already has some experience under his belt having finished runner-up in a point-to-point at Ballindenisk and Henry de Bromhead’s charge can go one better here.
The Valirann gelding was beaten two lengths on that occasion and is open to improvement despite probably needing further than this intermediate distance. He’s a well related sort though and he represents a top yard with Barry O’Neill in the saddle so a big run wouldn’t come and as a surprise and the pair can combine for the win.
3:40 Tipperary – Nenagh (C & G) Point-To-Point INH Flat Race (Div II) (5yo) 2m3½f
GARDE DES CHAMPS has finished in the places on all three starts between the flags and David Murphy’s charge can make the breakthrough here.
The Robin Des Champs gelding finished runner-up in his first two starts at Oldcastle and Portrush respectively, beaten less than one length on the latter occasion by Gortmillish who runs earlier in the card.
His latest run saw him finish fourth to Fameaftertheglory although he in turn finished ahead of a subsequent Wexford bumper winner and he’s shown enough to suggest he can win races. Open to further improvement and with Jamie Codd in the saddle he ought to go well and no surprise to see him in the mix.
5:15 Tipperary – Ballingarry (C & G) Point-To-Point INH Flat Race (Div II) (6-7yo) 2m3½f
BARDENSTOWN LAD shaped well on his point-to-point debut when finishing fourth behind Valleres at Tattersalls Farm back in December 2019 and the Black Sam Bellamy gelding subsequently stepped up on that experience to score at the second time of asking at Lingstown.
Subsequently bought for £40,000 he’s joined a very good yard in John McConnell’s operation and the form of his win was boosted by the third home in that race who has since won over hurdles at Warwick for Dan Skelton.
The yard does well with its’ limited runners in bumpers and point-to-point races so he has to be of interest turned out here and he can go close.
