TUESDAY TIPS FOR FAIRYHOUSE – IRISH RACING BEST BETS OVER THE STICKS
12:15 Fairyhouse – Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase (4yo+) 3m
GOODNIGHTNGODBLESS had been largely consistent and was in the process of running another solid race when falling at this venue last month; James Motherway’s charge is worth another chance though and the Yeat mare could get back to winning ways.
It has been a long time since her last win which came over hurdles back in 2019 at Roscommon but she’s largely acquitted herself well in defeat since over fences and her last completed start saw her beaten only a half-length into third at Listowel in September.
She was still in with a chance when departing at this course last time, crashing out two fences from home in the race won by Arrycan; but if none the worse for that mishap then she ought to make her presence felt again and no surprise if she were to go close.
1:15 Fairyhouse – Tattersalls Ireland 3-Y-O Maiden Hurdle (3yo) 2m
LAISHANN shaped well on his debut at Punchestown when making his first start for Gordon Elliott following a switch from France and the Footstepsinthesand gelding ought to build on that experience where he can get off the mark now.
He finished fourth on that first outing since moving from Francois Henri-Graffard’s French yard, beaten a fair distance by Bell Ex One and that form looks fair given the runner-up chased home a potential Graded horse at Down Royal over the weekend.
That experience won’t have been lost on him and he should improve to make bold bid for victory here.
2:15 Fairyhouse – Fairyhouse.ie Hurdle (5yo+) 2m4f
SKYACE clearly wasn’t herself when pulled up in the Galway Hurdle but Shark Hanlon’s charge has been given a break since that disappointment and the Westerner mare can resume her earlier progress.
A four-time winner over hurdles during 2020 which included Grade Three honours at Down Royal she took her form up a notch when returning to action following more than three months off at the Cheltenham Festival in March, finishing fourth in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle before landing a Gradfe One over this course and distance next time in April.
An early casualty at Punchestown in May when falling at the second, she wasn’t unfancied for the famous Galway handicap although things didn’t go to plan on that occasion. However given a break since and the subject of encouraging stable reports she may be worth chancing to bounce back here.
