Cian Michael Collins doesn’t have the largest of teams but he certainly packs a punch with what he has. The County Meath-based trainer has had a few British winners already and he always has to be respected when he sends one over. With this in mind, his two runners in question have to be of interest at Bangor on Tuesday. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
Umndeni won three times when trained by Philip Hobbs, but he hasn’t won a race since winning at Newton Abbot two years ago. He has been beaten a combined 142 lengths in his last three outings so don’t let the form figures of two thirds distract you from the reality that he needs to show huge improvement to land a blow here. He has plunged down the weights as a result and is having his first run for the yard off a mark of 105, a full 22lb lower than when second at Kempton in a pertemps qualifier a couple of years back. A market check is warranted here.
Punk Rock Girl is the other Collins trained runner in Wales on Tuesday and she is another who has recent form figures that wouldn’t inspire much confidence. She was beat 55 lengths in a handicap at Cartmel when last seen in June and it is very difficult to see where a win can come from when you sift through her form. Maybe the tongue tie on for the first time will bring out some improvement, but it is going to have to that’s for sure.
