PREVIEW | Ormond (F) at Ballingarry - Sunday

Race 1 - Tattersalls NH 4yo Geldings Maiden

MINELLA DOUBLE may have been no match for the mightily impressive Wrappedupinmay on his debut at Dromahane last month, however he still offered a lot of promise before coming down at the final fence and would look to set the standard of those with previous form ahead of the Lisronagh fifth Ihandaya.

Race 2 - Murphy Contractors & Duggan Vet Supplies 6yo Mares Maiden

Natural Look could be turned out for the second week in a row after she ran a fine race in defeat at Stradbally last Sunday to maintain her 100 per cent strike rate of finishing placed in each of her three outings in the point-to-point sphere. She should not be too far away again here. However preference would go for LOST CONNECTIONS as she took a big step forward to finish second in a competitive Bartlemy maiden earlier this month and can go one better here. Chitchat Sally is another who cannot be discounted as she is rarely out of the frame in races like this and arguably put up one of her best runs at Ballyknock last time.

Race 3 - Jimmy Neville Memorial 6yo Geldings Maiden

This has a very open look to it with many of the principals having questions to answer on their latest runs including Gouazec and Cinger Du Boissy and so it may be worth siding with more unexposed horse such as GREYROBIN STAR who was still in contention when exiting on his debut at Punchestown last weekend. He also represents a stable that are in particularly good form at present.

Race 4 - Fairymount Properties & Seymore Kenny Winner Of Three - Novice Rider

s By winner-of-three standards this race contains few multiple winners and it may be worth siding with FIERY BROWN who will be in receipt of the valuable 5lb mares allowance having only been narrowly denied at Bartlemy recently. She could get the better of last weeks Stradbally winner Good Source.

Race 5 - Dr Sazenski Memorial Ladies Open

David Christie won this race 12 months ago with Marinero and his HANDY HEADON could provide the Fermanagh handler with back-to-back wins in the race. He comes here following a hunter chase victory at Down Royal and is unexposed at this level. Rose Of Coolbally finished two lengths in front of It Came To Pass at Ballindenisk last Sunday and will be looking to confirm that form here.

Race 6 - The Glue Pot & T Toohey & Sons 7yo+ Maiden

LOCAL ROGUE has chased home horses such as the Cheltenham Festival winner Corach Rambler and the recent open scorer First Preference among the seven placed finishes that he has to his name from a total of eight starts in this sphere. He return from a long absence at Largy when far from disgraced and should go close once again. There are plenty of alternatives including Bowtie and the mares Imperial Lough and a back to form Lady Violet.
