WEEKEND PREVIEW: Cragmore (Sunday)

WEEKEND PREVIEW: Cragmore (Sunday)

Race 1: Goffs 4yo Geldings Maiden

Pat Doyle, Colin Bowe, Warren Ewing and Cormac Doyle, have all saddled four-year-old winners already this spring, and all four are represented here and it will be the market that gives the best guide as to what is expected from these well-bred youngsters on debut.

Race 2: Gain Horse Feeds 5yo+ Mares Maiden

SHEILA TANIST had been sent off as the favourite for her debut in a four-year-old maiden at Ballinagarry in June. She was going well when coming down with three to jump on that occasion, and will likely be fancied to gain compensation here. Rosie And Millie was running a big race against some more experienced rivals in very testing conditions at Borris House when coming down with two to jump, whilst Rollercoaster and Goulane Jessie both went well last time out and are sure to be involved in the shake-up again.

Race 3: The Dunraven, Adare 5yo Geldings Maiden

A wide open contest where it may be worth taking a look at some of the newcomers. DIOMEDE DES MOTTES is a French-bred that catches the eye as he was bought by Ryan Mahon and leading UK trainer Paul Nicholls for 47,000 pounds sterling. Of those with form, Hadmeathello finished just half-a-length behind last weeks Oldtown winner, King Of The Sharks when making his debut at Nenagh three weeks ago, and with that form having received a timely boost, he may be the pick of that bunch.

Race 4: OConnells Crecora Mills Winner of One

STAR WIZARD would have gone close but for falling at the final fence in a similar contest at Bellharbour earlier this month and he can make amends here for the Peter Flood team. Buckie Cullen can get closer than his fourth at Boulta before Christmas, whilst Troll Doudairies and Lady Writer are both recent maiden winners who step-up in grade here.

Race 5: Lady Harrington Open

BL Swagger will be out to try defend his success in this race 12 months ago, however it could prove to be a much hotter race this time round, and so preference is given to MORNING ASSEMBLY. The former Grade 1 winner could make a quick return to action as he looks to follow up a win at Kirkistown last Saturday in order to gain qualification for the Cheltenham Festival. Sydney Paget and Marinero were the first two home at Bellharbour earlier this month, and both are high class performers who will certainly be in the shake-up, as too will proven heavy ground performer, Rue Hill, who has won two of his three starts this season.

Race 6: The Countess of Dunraven 6yo+ Geldings Maiden

IUSETALUVHERONCE was beaten by just over a length in a heavy ground handicap hurdle at Listowel in September by a horse who went on to win a Premier Handicap at Leopardstown. With a hurdle mark of 99 to his name, this six-year-old should be well up to taking this. Newlands Cross made a pleasing return from a spell on the side lines when he finished third behind a decent sort at Nenagh in testing conditions, and he is open to improvement, whilst Thepremierbroker is another track recruit with snippets of form to his name.
