There’s a competitive meeting at Down Royal on Friday evening. In what could prove to be a crazily ambitious idea, Liam Bramall has selected a tip for every race. Seven winners from seven races in an Irish meeting would be huge so here are the selections for consideration. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
Big Time Girl (10-1, bet365) Showed enough on her first two starts to suggest that she’s capable of winning this. Having finished a four-length fifth to a Ballydoyle inmate at Cork last time, a similar or improved effort could be enough in this much weaker race.
Sceolan (2-1, bet365) was only narrowly denied in a Tipperary maiden when last seen. This race looks extremely winnable so she should win, being the highest rated horse in the race and in receipt of an allowance. Could be very difficult to beat.
Panic Alarm (11-8, bet365) was keeping on over 6f when third at the Curragh last time out. On that evidence, the step up to 7f should be right up his street. The first and second are smart sorts who have gone on to compete at Group or Listed level. Could well be third time lucky for Jessie Harrington’s charge.
Approaching Bear (7-2, bet365) has been learning on the job but is getting there slowly but surely. He was denied by the narrowest of margins when second at Killarney last time. The handicapper raised him a pound for that effort but this looks like the day he finally gets off the mark.
Scenic Look (5-1, bet365) has won her last two starts under both codes. The track should be no problem as she won a maiden hurdle here last week. Her win over an extended two miles at Galway in July suggested the extra 2 furlongs here would cause no problem. Career-high mark now but she’s in cracking form and is still lightly raced.
Joupe (8-1, bet365) is entitled to improve for her latest effort as it was her first start for 247 days. Better can be expected with the benefit of that run under her belt. Clearly a better horse on the all-weather but there’s enough evidence to suggest she can gain her first turf win.
This intermediate trip of 1m5f could be perfect for Mr Coldstone (5-1, bet365). His two best runs on the flat came over 1m4f at Roscommon and 1m6f at Killarney last time out. Splitting the difference could provide the perfect opportunity to get off the mark.
