Today’s horse racing preview comes from two meetings, Gowran Park and Newton Abbot.
13.35 Gowran Park – Ladies Day June 24th (C&G) Maiden (9.5f)
Very difficult to look past Ger Lyons Cannonball, a Loup De Vega off spring and related to several winners should be too good for his opposition first time out. Best of the rest looks to come in Shabdiz of the Aga Khan’s who has a nice pedigree being by Sea The Stars through the bloodline of Marju.
Gloves On is also nicely pedigreed by Teofilo out of Tiffed and represents another yard in good form in Jim Bolger and Godolphin..
Cannonball : 2pt win @ 7/4 (BOG)
14.05 Gowran Park – Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Median Auction Maiden Fillies Maiden. (9.5f)
Jessica Harrington looks to have a very promising type on her hands here with Two For Tea who ran in a corresponding race at Cork last month when a good third to Hillcrest Fire, that was over half a furlong further than today and should make her presence felt under today’s pilot Connor O’Donoghue who is a very able booking.
Furiosa finished nine lengths in front of the selection at Cork, being by Bushranger I am a little surprise they are dropping her almost three quarters of a furlong when she looked to have staying attitude on her side.
Two For Tea : 1.5pt Win @ 11/4 (BOG)
14.40 Newton Abbot – totepool Racecourse Debit Card Betting Available Chase (Novices Limited Handicap)
I am very sweet on Colin Tizzard’s Exxaro here in what looks a good opportunity to progress on his fourth place at Warwick in a 0-135 Chase finishing when only one length separating the first four.
Once with Henry De Bromhead winning, over the trip and beyond and will be very hard to beat under Cobden. I think the one chasing him home is Kim Bailey’s Such A Legend who ran out second in a 0-135 recently at Southwell.
Exxaro : 3pt win @ 7/4 (BOG)
