Race 1: Tattersalls Ireland 4yo Mares Maiden

The luckless METHODTOTHEMADNESS is certainly deserving of a change in fortunes, as she came down in the closing stages at both Monksgrange and Necarne last season, having shown very promising signs.

She was upsides Robin Des Sivola when the pair exited at the last at Necarne, and with Robin Des Sivola having already won the opening race in this division at Toomebridge, that is a big boost, whilst the stable is in red hot form. Takingitallin and the fast finishing Mrsgrey are the likely dangers.

Race 2: Tattersalls Ireland Cheltenham Sales 4yo Geldings Maiden

HANG TOUGH made an encouraging debut at The Pigeons last month, and that opening fourth-place effort should see him as the leading horse in this with previous form.

Flaming Glory and Murphys Law have both got among the placings to date, and would seem to be the pick of the others with previous experience, and the market will give the best guide as to what is expected from the many newcomers.

Race 3: Gain 5yo Mares Maiden

LUSCIOUS LIlLY returns from her summer break having already proven herself to be a very capable sort at this venue in early May, when she was left in front at the final fence, only to be badly hampered. Despite being almost brought to a standstill, she picked up again to only go down by a neck in what was a very promising debut.

All The Way West has the advantage of recent race fitness over a number of these, and has really seemed to have taken a step forward of late. Meanwhile, Whatsdastory did offer more hope with her final start of last season around here in May, having failed to build on the promise of Quakerstown-second when well beaten at Ballysteen.

Race 4: 5yo Geldings Maiden

SHANACOOLE PRINCE produced two very consistent performances to round out his debut season when placing at both Liscarroll and around here in late April.

Both of those efforts would entitle him to go very close in a race like this. Of the others, The Ferry Master, Go Yeats and Morningside have all got among the placings and are sure to be there or there abouts.

Race 5: Singletons SuperValu Open (4yo+)

STAND UP AND FIGHT is a lightly raced track recruit who has notable form against the likes of Death Duty and Al Boum Photo from his novice hurdle season, and is a horse that has finished second in Grade 2 company ensuring that he has to be taken seriously here.

Arctic Skipper is another to have reached a high level under rules, whilst of those with more recent points form, A Decent Excuse, who was a five-time winner last season is sure to be an improved force with two runs already under his best, alongside the likes of After Eight Sivola, Some Are Lucky and Samanntom.

Race 6: 5yo+ Adjacent Maiden

THE RIGHT PROFILE ran his best race to date in a similar event at this course in March and may be a competitive force once again by dropping into this company.

Ali The Greatest proved his well-being when third at Moig South last weekend, where that race fitness should certainly prove beneficial here, whilst Kris The Ground will have her first start for the Michael Winters team on what would also be her first appearance between the flags following four starts under rules.
