Flat racing returns to the Curragh! One tip for every race on Monday’s card

Flat racing returns to the Curragh on Monday and their traditional curtain-raiser includes a very competitive Group 3, as well as the 20-runner Irish Lincolnshire. We’ve picked out a tip for every race to consider, which should give you a significant head start on your search for winners.

1.35 Curragh

Monotone runs for Jim Bolger in this two-year-old maiden and he managed to win this race back in 2021. Bolger often does well in the first few juvenile races of the season and this horse could follow suit. His sire was a Group 1 winner on soft to heavy ground, which offers hope that he will cope with these conditions, and that will be key to any horse’s chances here.

2.05 Curragh

Laugh A Minute should feel the benefit of his seasonal reappearance run at Dundalk last time out. He was a little too keen over 6f and should be suited by the return to 5f. A course and distance winner on heavy ground last autumn, he’s entitled to go close here.

2.35 Curragh

Marty The Party could be the one to side with in this open-looking maiden and he wasn’t beaten far when third here over a mile back in September. He was a little too keen in the early stages of the race and the drop back to 7f can help. This horse wouldn’t need to improve much to get off the mark here.

3.10 Curragh

Mayfair has an immaculate pedigree and everything about it suggests she could be a very smart filly. Inexperience was her enemy on debut at Galway in August and a more professional display is expected this time around.

3.40 Curragh

Sli Na Ghealai was progressive towards the end of last season and her late-blooming profile suggests there could be more to come at three. She was an impressive winner of a handicap on heavy ground when last seen and deserves a shot at this Group 3 prize.

4.10 Curragh

Green Sky has only had three starts on the Flat to date and was victorious at Ballinrobe at the second time of asking back in June. She still looked inexperienced when fifth on handicap debut at Gowran next time and three starts over hurdles would have taught her plenty.

4.40 Curragh

Rampage was a winner on soft ground last season and made a good impression when a close up fourth on seasonal debut at Dundalk earlier this month. He reappears off the same mark and should have every chance if building on that effort here.

5.10 Curragh

Merisi Diamond absolutely bolted up here in a 7f handicap on heavy ground when last seen in October and he’s since switched to the Martin Brassil yard. Life will be harder off an 11lb higher mark but he’s lightly raced and there could be more to come.
