WEEKEND PREVIEW: Borris (Sunday)

WEEKEND PREVIEW: Borris (Sunday)

Race 1: Walsh Whiskey Distillery 4yo Mares Maiden

A mistake at the final fence could have proved costly for SIEGE OF TOBRUK who had to settle for second at Boulta recently in a big field contest, and that could leave her as the horse to beat. The Colin Bowe-trained Lorvon Pearl finished third in that same contest, on what was her debut and will not need to find that much more improvement to challenge, alongside the consistent Malachys Girl who has finished second on three occasions including behind the impressive Queens Cave. Western Victory, Go Millie Go, and Cavs Girl are others all capable of big runs.

Race 2: Tattersalls Ireland Ascot Cheltenham Sales 4yo Geldings Maiden

There was not a lot separating PLAN OF ESCAPE and Pieceoftheaction when the pair crossed swords at Lingstown last month and that form could prove to be the key to this race. Tom Keating won a similar race at Mainstown last Sunday, ensuring his Reikers Island would have to be feared here having been narrowly beaten at Kinsale. Press Conference, Timcoda, Big Difference, and Noflashback have all shown early ability to date and are capable of big runs.

Race 3: Shantou & Sea Moon at Burgage Stud 5yo Mares Maiden

An open looking contest where there may not be a great deal separating some of the leading contenders. Following her second-placed finish at Dromahane last month, BERBORU gets the verdict for this having stayed-on well on her first completed outing. If Gold Runner could recapture her form from Castletown or Lisronagh she would be a definite danger, alongside both Native Way and Tourgar Pure Gold who finished second and third respectively at Lingstown last time.

Race 4: John Joseph Hanlon - Horse Trainer 5yo Geldings Maiden

LAGGANSTOWN was unable to follow-up a narrow defeat at the hands of Smugglers Blues in Quakerstown in April on his return to action at Lingstown last month. The bay gelding is given a second chance to make amends here with his stable in top form following a double at Mainstown last week including in a similar contest. Lisronagh third, Seedorf, was still in contention when coming down with four to jump at Dromahane, and he could be the main danger, whilst Turlough could be a factor if bouncing back from a disappointing run at Turtulla.

Race 5: Goffs Property Open for Novice Riders

ON THE FRINGE, the only horse to complete the Hunter Chase triple crown at the Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown Festivals in consecutive years, has been unable to re-capture that form in recent times, pulling-up in testing conditions at Cork last month. A first start between the flags since winning his 5yo maiden at Lisronagh in 2010 could see him back to winning ways. Two Rockers is a classy alternative who was coming back from a long break when second at Boulta and he can put it up to the selection.

Race 6: Walshs Homevalue Hardware 6yo Maiden

Providing she puts in a clean round of jumping, RAINBOWS AT DAWN would have to be expected to go close, as she was in the process of running a big race at both Ballinaboola and Lingstown when coming to grief. She had Keel Over behind her when exiting most recently at Lingstown and can make amends here. The Secret Mason has switched yards since finishing second at Grennan and is returning from a lay-off, whilst Coach Road was in front at this venue in February only to cost himself a shot at victory with a very slow jump at the final fence.
