Race 1 - INHSC & Killian Lynch Auctioneers Macroom 4yo Mares Maiden
The final four-year-old mares maiden of the season has quite an open look to it with SHIROCCOSMAGICGEM offering the strongest coming into this assignment courtesy of her third-place finish at Punchestown recently. She may have been a beaten favourite on that occasions, however she was only beaten six lengths and this looks a good opportunity for her. Choral Balley looks next best of those with previous form.
Race 2 - Connollys Red Mills 4yo Geldings Maiden
Fresh from a treble at Inchydoney last Sunday, Colin Bowe will look to continue his strong end to the season with the twice previously raced WASPY. He may have been no match for the standout Ittack Blue at Punchestown most recently, but he has two placed efforts to his name and deserves to get his head in front. Minella Double also looked likely to chase home another impressive Matthew Flynn O Connor winner before falling at the last in Dromahane a month ago, and is the obvious alternative.
Race 3 - Tattersalls NH 5yo Geldings Maiden
FORTUITOUS FIND returned from a mid-season break a much improved performer with more positive tactics in Bartlemy seeing him find just one horse too good in a big-field maiden. He likely comes here as the one to beat with his stablemates Garcon Dargent and Eire Street also holding place claims on the pick of their form. Outside of the Ballyboy team, Duhallow Rainbow might offer the most interest of those with previous experience.
Race 4 - INHSC & Robert Harkin & Associates Auctioneers Blarney Open
VISIOMAN lowered the colours of A Rated at Punchestown earlier this month and a repeat of that performance would likely see him capable of doubling up in this. La Feline and It Came To Pass are the obvious dangers, and whilst All Hell Let Loose disappointed around here last month, his runs either side of it would have to bring him into the reckoning too.
Race 5 - QR Association 6yo+ Maiden (Nov Rdrs)
CARRIGLUX was sitting just behind The Galahad Kid when exiting at the final fence around here earlier this month. That rival has more than advertised the form by coming out and winning again in Ballingarry last Saturday to enhance his claims and it is hard to look beyond him. The 88-rated hurdler Dangan Des Champs was first past the post in a maiden around here back in 2020 and her return to the pointing fields, on what is also her first start back under the care of Robert Tyner, should see her involved alongside Imperial Tune, Useitorlooseit and Vermout Fougeray.
Race 6 - INHSC Winner Of Two
INCHIDALY COPPER goes in search of a quick-fire hat-trick here hot on the heels of a facile victory at Inchydoney, but NICE TO MEET could stop his winning run. He has finished second in both the valuable Winners Final at Monksgrange and in hunter chase company at Tipperary and can win his second race of the season at this venue. Iks Man and Rocconrockall add further depth to the finale.
