WEEKEND PREVIEW: Dromahane (Sunday)

WEEKEND PREVIEW: Dromahane (Sunday)

Race 1: Goffs Punchestown Sale 4yo Maiden

A total of 50 entries for the first race on the card and it's the Willie Burke-trained newcomer DAMIER that stands out on paper. Of those with form it is the Gigginstown recruit Diamond Turf, who fell first time out, that looks the most likely. Donnchadh Doyle has a handful of newcomers entered here and whatever runs for his in-form stable would have to be feared.

 

 

Race 2: Coolmore Grange Stud 5&6yo Mares Maiden

 

 

SLIABH MHUIRE LASS produced her best effort when last seen, finishing second in the hands of Derek O Connor at Loughbrickland earlier this month. Running all the way to the line on that occasion, she is still improving and well capable of taking one of these. Shazzamataz for James Sheenan posted a really solid effort to finish third on debut and the Presenting mare is sure to improve on that. If doing so she is a danger alongside Sweet Lady Jane and Rathbawn Rose.

 

 

Race 3: Tattersalls Ireland 5yo Geldings Maiden

 

 

OVER STATED looked sure to finished second at Monksgrange recently and despite coming to grief at the final fence, looks the most likely winner of this contest. Must Havea Flutter failed to build on the improvement he had shown earlier in his career but if able to bounce back here, he would rate a danger. Ringmoylan and The Ogle Gogle Man look best of the rest.

 

 

Race 4: The Fitzgerald Family 6yo Maiden

 

 

THYNE FOR RUDA has 14 runs to his name but has shown good signs of improvement to finish third on his last two starts. The Mark Clifford-trained gelding is sure to give his running again and looks the most likely here. Shower Cross, Minella Voucher, Insufficient Funds and Hows That Man look best of the rest.

 

 

Race 5: Dairygold, Rathbarry Stud & OK Woodcraft Winner of Three 

 

 

RATTLE THE CAGE gained a deserved success at Durrow last month when beating a next time out winner in good style. The Mahler gelding looks to be improving with each run and can play a leading role here. Pop The Champers is also a recent winner and looks a danger coming from the in-form Denis Murphy team. Blue Mountain Boy looks best of the remainder.

 

 

Race 6: Hibernian Hotel & Buckley Brothers Open

 

 

SPRINTINGFORGOLD has done nothing wrong since making his debut at Loughanmore in 2014. Six wins from eight runs, the Gold Well gelding produced another top class effort to win by six-lengths at Quakerstown recently. He is taken to continue the good run if lining out again quickly. Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up Sir Des Champs and the Colin Bowe-trained Western Man look best away from the leading two.
