Weekend Preview | Ballycrystal 19th January

Race 1 - Moses Coffey, L&M Motors, Jason Kelly Specialist Cars & Ronan Furlong Tyre World 5yo Mares Maiden

FEUILLE DE LUNE put up a brave effort from the front on her debut at Borris House before Christmas when she was only headed at the penultimate obstacle. With her stable having won a similar contest at Tinahely last Sunday, she should be capable of following up here.

Her stablemate also made her debut at Borris House when finishing a respectable fourth, and there may not be a lot separating her and Jiggy With It who was third at Ballingarry in June, as the dangers.

Race 2 - Donnchadh Doyle 5yo Geldings Maiden

SUNSET WEST was one of two horses that pulled a distance clear of their rivals at Boulta in November, and whilst he came up a length short against the most experienced French Light, that would look to be the standout piece of form coming into this and he would be hard to oppose if reproducing that.

The likely danger could come from Get Your Own, who although no match for the impressive Clondaw Bertie at Dromahane over Christmas, ran a respectable race on his debut nonetheless.

Race 3 - BHA Construction Ltd & Ballyhuskard Winner Of Two

MT LEINSTER GOLD will be in receipt of the valuable 5lb mares allowance which could prove too much for her rivals to concede to her, as she won impressively at Dawstown last May following on from an eye-catching introduction at Monksgrange before that. She can make a winning return to action in this.

Alkaa Lion should find things easier in this having pulled-up in open company on his seasonal re-appearance at Mainstown. He ran a number of respectable races last spring and is proven in winners company, whilst Beatthebullet will need to bounce back from a disappointing run at Aghabullogue last Sunday.

Race 4 - Casey Concrete & Denis Murphy 6yo Mares Maiden

MIDWAY TO GETAWAY chased home Immortality on her debut at Moig South back in November in what was an encouraging effort which could give her the edge in this.

Lady Violet could be set for her second run within a week having finished fourth at Tinahely last Sunday, and she did show some signs of coming back to her Loughrea second in that effort, whilst Maybe Its Time managed to get among the placings at Tinahely in November and may be more at home in this grade having pulled up in a competitive race at Borris House most recently.

Race 5 - Pat & Gavin Rossiter 6yo Geldings Maiden

CHOCTAW BRAVE has steadily progressed with each outing this season, culminating in a close fourth placing at Lingstown back in November. With the runner-up from that race since franking the form, he could be the one to side with in this contest.

The New Kid is the obvious danger following two respectable runs at Ballindenisk, and having finished second on his penultimate start, he is entitled to win a race like this, whilst Milanford would have to enter the reckoning on his Lingstown run if bouncing back from a disappointing run at Borris House.
Race 6 - Goffs Thyestes Chase January 23rd Gowran Park & Ellen Doyle Baltimore Stables 5yo Confined Maiden

THE SILENT TRAINER managed to get among the placings in a four-year-old maiden on his debut at Mainstown, and whilst he could not quite follow it up at Dromahane over Christmas, he still ran a solid race and should be a leading contender with the switch to Confined company.

Stable mates Texas Gold and Pasvolsky are others that have made the frame in four-year-old company ensuring that they have to enter the equation for this, as does Choctaw Brave and Oscar Elite.
