Soft ground horses to follow at Ballinrobe after 11mm of rain overnight

Ballinrobe Racecourse

There were big changes overnight as 11mm of rain fell at Ballinrobe which means the ground there is now yielding, soft in places. We can expect it to be soft for the start of the first race.

The scenic track in County Mayo in the West of Ireland plays host to an eight-race jumps card starting at 1.00 pm. Below are the horses that have proven form on soft ground.

1:00pm – What Wonders Weave

Shark Hanlon and Bryan Cooper are in good form at present and this mare is having just her third start for the yard today. She finished 3rd at Bellewstown when last seen and has plenty of soft and heavy ground form in the book from her flat days in the UK. She can be expected to improve on her recent outing with conditions suiting.

2:30pm – The Irregular

This is an eight year old Scorpion gelding who has run 18 times since his last win in 2017. He arrives here off the back of an 11 month break but this is his first run for the Maher stable since leaving Denis Hogan. He is the only horse in the field with winning form on soft ground, winning a soft ground handicap at Clonmel off this mark in 2016.

4:00pm – Silk Worm

We tipped Silk Worm up today on the website and feel Liz Doyle’s charge has excellent claims with the ground coming in her favour now. A former bumper winner on soft to heavy ground at Tramore, the more rain the better for this mare who has a love for sharp undulating tracks and in a competitive contest she has a very live chance.
