Horses are amazing creatures of habit and YOUNGNEDOFTHEHILL (NAP) (best price 5-1) will hopefully prove that his inclination to come living at this eloquent, right-handed track once again comes to fruition.
One win in 31 suggests he is not worth going overboard about, but it is important that his only career achievement and many others have come at the Co Mayo place and following several pretty promising performances with his standards on’off’ dayshe seems poised to go well on his return to his happy stomping ground. A creditable fifth in a well-run handicap at Down Royal behind Party Playboy two starts ago signified he has still got plenty of life at his legs regardless of his veteran status and he definitely wasn’t disgraced at Cork last time when being held upward off a slow pace did not suit. But with form figures at tonight’s venue of 122U, it’s clear that for some reason he likes winging about these tight bends and with trip and conditions in his favour too, Shane Nolan’s gelding can proceed close to ending his trainer’s lengthy, losing streak.
ENGROSSED??(best price 9-2) conducted a fantastic bit better than the bare response proposes over tonight’s course last time out and she has given the nod whilst managed the chance to put the record straight on her return visit.
Well-supported to back her up past solid effort within the same C&D, Martyn Meade’s filly immediately found herself supporting the eight-ball because she had been badly hampered and squeezed out on the hands to the first bend. Recovering her equilibrium, she subsequently had to survive a wide trip with no cover onto the wing going down the back straight and rounding the home turn so it was no great surprise that she could not really see her race out all the way to the line. Clearly wel-suited by tonight class, the daughter of Tamayuz tries a new trip for the first time, but based on her run-style and pedigree, she’s likely to improve to the extra yardage and if that turns out to be the case, she should take high rank against comparable opponents to what she’s been facing .
BUG BOY (best price 4-1) ran out a convincing winner for the first time in 12 starts at Ffos Las last time out and having run nicely over tonight’s time before, he rates a confident choice to maintain himself and his in-form handler directly from the zone.
Once more gradually away in the Welsh course, the boy of Big Bad Bob found himself using quite a little to do as the field swung for home, but arriving with a long, withering run down the outside in the straight, he slowly picked off his competitors one by one to move on a listing a cosy success. Formerly , the three-year-old had also run well over tonight’s C&D when compared to the handy Oydis and given that performance was achieved despite getting a barbarous trip out wide for a lot of the travel, his campaign penalizing upgrading. Returning to the scene of that fine display from the rudest of health and hailing from a secure who’s experienced a two winners in the previous week, Bug Boy seems a safe bet to strike the framework at the very least. The unexposed Waterfront representing an in-form stable and jockey mix looks the most important threat according to his conduct within tonight’s course last moment.
