Owen’s Pattern Race Outsiders! 25/1, 20/1 and 16/1 Each Way Horse Racing Tips

Cork Racecourse

After an exhilarating four days at York, there still is plenty of exciting racing to look forward to on Sunday. There are meetings hosted by Cartmel, Wolverhampton, Sandown and Naas, with pattern action in the offing too!

I’ve had a detailed scan through the racecards of those pattern contests, looking for some bigger-priced fancies to whet the appetite. I believe I’ve found some value and can now present to you, Owen’s Outsiders for Sunday!


1.50 Naas – Faire Croire (25/1)

Breaking her maiden at the second attempt, little has gone right since for Faire Croire. She missed the break at Leopardstown on her third outing, making plenty of late progress in that Group 3 contest. On her latest start at the Curragh in a Premier Handicap, she pulled a shoe and can be forgiven that effort as a result.

She remains promising after just four starts and the fact connections went straight for Group 3 company after her maiden win suggests that they have big plans for her. Softer ground is an unknown, but she should be granted a strong-pace to aim at.

The faster they go early on, the bigger her chances, especially if the ground turns up extremely soft. It would be no surprise to see her picking up the pieces late, hopefully for some placed profit at the very least.


3.05 Sandown – Indie Angel (16/1)

Really getting the hang of things in 2020, John Gosden’s Indie Angel is on a hot-streak. She’s began to surge through the handicap ranks and was an impressive winner at Salisbury on her latest outing off a mark of 86.

Costing a whopping 600,000gns and related to some very smart types, connections clearly think plenty of her. She does need significant improvement to be taking this contest, but it’s still early days.

She’s completely unexposed and the best is surely yet to come from this well-bred daughter of Dark Angel. She’s just the type to continue progressing for each racecourse experience and that gives her strong each-way claims.


3.20 Naas – Elizabethofaragon (20/1)

She’s taking a while to find her stride, but the well-bred Elizabethofaragon clearly has plenty of ability. Unsighted in her first three starts, she landed her first two handicaps in good style. The latter success came at Down Royal, where she managed to get up in the closing stages over an inadequate looking ten furlongs.

She wasn’t entirely disgraced in a Group 3 at Cork on her latest outing and there can be hope that a step up to fourteen furlongs will eke out even more from her. A daughter of Galileo, there is plenty of stamina in her pedigree to facilitate that improvement.

There are plenty of Aidan O’Brien’s horses who are slow burners and she looks very much one of those ilk. She has four lengths to make up with Passion, but that horse finds winning very difficult and there can be hope that this Padraig Beggy ridden filly can improve past her.

Regardless of who their ridden by and their place in the market, all O’Brien runners require close attention, and this could well be another classic example of why you never count out a Ballydoyle horse.
