Weekend Preview | Ballyragget

Race 1: Tallis & Co and Aidan Brophy 5yo Geldings Maiden
 
ULTIMATE GETAWAY offered a lot of encouragement on his debut when chasing home a smart sort at Tinahely. The third in that race was a 25-length winner at Turtulla last week to offer a nice form boost. Lifeisahighway bounced back to form when coming up against a smart-looking individual at Borris House a fortnight ago and he is the obvious alternative.
 
Stable companions Businessman and Normofthenorth have also showed potential, whilst the twice-placed Up The Straight, Kirkistown-third Elmdale, and De Hollow Man, who finished placed in a four-year-maiden in the autumn, are others to note.

Race 2: Gain Horse Feeds 5yo Mares Maiden
 
The Sam Curling yard saddled a winning mare at Turtulla last week and they will be hoping to add to their seasons tally with FORTHEGREATERGOOD in this. The daughter of Yeats has posted two very consistent displays of late, beaten by less than two lengths at both Kilfeacle and Nenagh.
 
Notnowkami has struggled in maiden company, with her two best efforts to date coming when taking on previous winners, but she has to be respected, whilst Racks Cross was third on her debut and can improve.

Race 3: Dicks SuperValu, Ballyragget 5yo Adjacent Maiden
 
MOES TAVERN was sent off as the favourite for his debut at Borris House earlier this month and he emerged from it with plenty of credit, when finishing a fine second in deteriorating conditions. He looks to be the one to follow in this.
 
Oscar Asche finished third in a four-year-old maiden behind Angels Breath who was a leading hope for Cheltenham during the week and is still unexposed, whilst Panthers Creek, who only got as far as the fourth on this card 12 months ago, did get among the placings at Curraghmore and would have chances if bouncing back to that.

Race 4: Connollys Red Mills Open
 
KRUZHLININ has taken all before him this season, winning seven races on the bounce in open company, and he will look to continue that winning spell here as he prepares for the Aintree Foxhunters next month.
 
There are plenty in here that could offer him a decent challenge, including former Grade 1 winner Road To Riches who returned a long break when second at Carlisle last week, whilst reigning champion pointer will be better than what he showed at Navan. Electric Concorde caught the eye at Kildorrery, whilst Holly Flight came late to win at Dungarvan.

Race 5: John Dalton & Sons, Chancellors Mills Winner Of One
 
Whilst still remaining a maiden, LIFEISAHIGHWAY put up a big display at Borris House recently in a five-year-old maiden, a race which saw the front pair pull well clear of remainder, in a piece of form which should be good enough to win this.
 
Crutches Lad won well on the same Borris card and will be expected to go well here, as too will Lough Derg Lyric who got off the mark at Kirkistown.

Race 6: John Phelan & Co and John Holland 6yo Geldings Maiden
 
Kildrum is long overdue a maiden success, however he disappointed at Lingstown last Sunday, and so the preference has to be given to the luckless LARCADIO. He looked home and hosed at Bandon at the beginning of the month in very testing conditions, only to tip up at the last. Compensation can be claimed here.
 
Moes Tavern has an easier alternative earlier on the card, Tipp Away finished a fine second on his first start for a new yard when re-appearing at Tinahely, whilst Verticalpebble makes a quick re-appearance having finished third at Belclare last Sunday.
