TUESDAY IRISH RACING BEST BETS – TIPPERARY TIPS
1:05 Tipperary – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden (Plus 10 Race) (2yo) 5f
GRAMMATA hasn’t been the most consistent, punctuating good runs with lesser efforts; but Denis Hogan’s charge has hit the frame in three of five outings this term including in Listed company and was thought good enough to contest at Royal Ascot in the Queen Mary Stakes.
The Twilight Son filly was last seen posting one of her better efforts to finish just over one length third behind Lady Princess at Bellewstown although the testing ground possibly compromised her chances as she appeared to find less than expected having travelled well.
This less testing surface should suit better and she can bounce back with a better effort here to get off the mark.
2:05 Tipperary – Meadowview Stables Maiden (Div I) (3yo+) 1m1f
PIN YOUR HOPES could be the answer and the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding has been running well in defeat with a succession of efforts in the frame.
Andrew Oliver’s charge has finished in the money in all but his debut run, latterly finding only one too good at Gowran Park when beaten less than one length behind Daylight Come. However the form of his previous third place finish at Leopardstown looks useful form with the winner since finding only one too good in a valuable handicap at Curragh on Irish Champions Weekend.
He was clear of the third horse home in his latest start and he should continue to give a good account in a relatively ordinary-looking maiden contest where he remains open to improvement.
3:05 Tipperary – Junction Apprentice Handicap (3yo 45-65) 1m1f
ROCKVIEW EMPRESS could be the way to go having struck last time out and the Lope De Vega filly could be capable of defying a penalty for that success.
John McConnell’s charge had been running fairly well prior to that success, but she found a jolt of improvement to post a career-best run in beating Ben Alexander at Navan just five days ago, forging clear.
His penalty for that win is largely offset by his rider’s claim in this apprentices’ contest while the extra furlong to travel ought to suit and still relatively unexposed she could take another forward step here to make her presence felt.
4:35 Tipperary – Oola Handicap (3yo+ 50-80) 1m4½f
GALEOLA could be the answer and the course and distance winner can build on her recent reappearance at Gowran Park last month to do better this time around.
Sheila Lavery’s Rip Van Winkle mare ended last campaign in good form, winning three times which include over course and distance and she signed off for the season with a ready success at Leopardstown where she beat Moonmeister by two lengths.
Making her return to action last month she looked rusty and ought to come on for her eighth-place finish behind Springbank so it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise if she didn’t pick up her earlier form with that outing under her belt hand having been eased 3lbs by the assessor.
