1.35 Gowran Park For Golf Race 7f

This is good opportunity for the in-form Pretty Rebel to make it three wins in four runs. Gerard O’Leary’s mare ran out a comprehensive winner on her most recent run at Cork which prompted a rating of 100. She also showed her ability to handle this course and distance when second to the useful Night Of Romance earlier in the season. Jamie Powell takes a handy 7lbs off her back also.

Willie McCreery runs two interesting debut winners and it’s noteworthy that Billy Lee is riding Marcher Lord, because as promising as he was when winning at Navan, Self Belief’s winning Curragh debut looks better, with the runner-up having reached a rating of 99 after his next two starts.

2.10 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden 1m

Delightful, a full sister to Minding and Tuesday, made a more than satisfactory debut when she finished fourth to Shelton at the Curragh and she can get off the mark now.

Aidan O’Brien’s filly showed plenty of pace to hold a prominent position but once coming under pressure, she showed clear signs of greeness, and she should benefit from the experience.

Astar has scope to improve off of her debut fifth at Leopardstown. That run came at a time when Dermot Weld’s runners were not in top form so she can be marked up.


Next best: Astar

2.45 Irish Stallion Farms EBF (C&G) Maiden 1m

It might be worth chancing Mister Mister, who has run with credit on both of his two starts.

Fifth to Alder at Killarney on his debut, he was sent off favourite for a seven-furlong maiden at this track for his latest run, and although held in third there, it was still a good run and represented a step forward from his debut.

The Aidan O’Brien duo of Covent Garden and Hippodrome ran creditably first time out and each have a chance here, but Donnacha O’Brien’s Newport is of more interest. He was sixth in a Curragh maiden that looked sharp on the clock and he could have more to offer now.


Next best: Newport

3.20 Join The Gowran Park Racing Club Handicap 1m

Mark Cahill’s Miracles In May ran well enough in a handicap over the course and distance earlier in the season, finishing just under five lengths away from Angel’s Trumpet, having been drawn in stall 12.

He’s drawn in five today, off a 7lb lower mark and comes into the race off two solid efforts, the latest coming when he ran on to finish third in a 23-runner seven-furlong handicap at Cork.

Speckled Meadow is interesting enough to take a chance on from stall 10. He ran really well to finish second on his latest start, not least because he was returning to the track for the first time in 262 days.


Next best: Speckled Meadow

3.55 D.Cordell Lavarack/ Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes (Group 3) 1m 1f 100yds

Galleria Borghese possibly sets the standard here off the back of her big run to finish third in the Blandford Stakes last week, but a line through that form brings forward the case for Paris Peacock. Jessica Harrington’s filly took a while to get off the mark but did so in style when she won a listed contest over this course and distance last month. Two of the fillies she beat there, Didn’thavemuchtodo and Lyrical Poetry finished close in behind Galleria Borghese in the Blandford, so Paris Peacock measures up well in that respect. She has a nice draw again and if she can continue progressing as she has done for her last two starts, she should be there at the business end.

British challenger Kawida is interesting from a plum draw but may not be as effective over this trip, having finished fifth in the Oaks earlier this season. She finished ahead of Tranquil Lady there, but Joseph O’Brien’s filly has strong form in the book and comes out the top rated here, so has to be respected, for all that she disappointed on her previous start. The stable’s other runner Haziya is also interesting. She ran well behind Charterhouse in a listed contest at Killarney last time, staying on strongly, and she has the scope to improve further now coming over this longer trip.


Next best: Haziya

4.30 Supporting Irish Jockeys Fund Apprentice Handicap 1m 1f 100yds

Course winner Lamprog has been in good form this season, notably through April and May when he was a nose away from making it three wins on the bounce when just held by the porgressive Urban Oasis. Given a mini break, he hasn’t reached the same form since his return but he has run well enough on both his previous two starts over a trip that possibly stretches him.

Back down in distance and with first time blinkers to sharpen him up, he looks worth chancing today.

Heather Bear seeks a four-timer but has a graveyard draw to contend with so Zuhra gets the second vote. The Aga Khan-owned daughter of Caravaggio produced possibly her best effort yet when third to Giladah at Leopardstown and she has to scope to progress further now.


Next best: Zuhra

5.05 Racing Again Sept 30th And Oct 1st Maiden 1m 1f 100yds

Three Laws can get off the mark. Jessica Harrington’s filly has run with credit on all five of her starts but probably ran the best of all on her most recent run at Clonmel. She finished second there to Silent Prayer and ahead of the 82-rated Any Dream Will Do. Soft ground shouldn’t be a problem.

Aidan O’Brien’s two fillies, Cherub and The Lute Player, are of obvious interest in this standard contest, with slight preference for the former. She might just enjoy coming back down to this sort of trip, having failed to progress over further after a promising debut run at Dundalk.


Next best: Cherub

5.40 Corinthian Challenge Charity Race Series 1m4f

Takarengo should give Jane Davis another good spin, the pair having already secured a race in this series at the Curragh. Brazos should be a useful horse in this sphere also, as a previous Irish Cesarewitch winner.


Next best: Brazos
