Down Royal 3.35
Rise Of An Empire 3-1 Win
.Has won last two races since being upped in trip with hood fitted, latest at Stratford last week over 3m 2f when winning well even tho it wasn’t a straight forward victory carries a penalty for that but could go in again if in same mood here.
Rehana 5-2 Win
.Hasn’t shown same promise since defeating Rhododendrum in a maiden at the Curragh back in June 2016 although was just touched into 3rd latest at leopardstown over 7f in April , gets ideal conditions here and should be winning again in a wide open race.
Honkytonktennessee 7-4 Win
.Has won two on the bounce since upped in trip with hood fitted. Latest of these was at Stratford over 3m 2f last week is carrying a penalty for that win and is turned out quickly again for the Skeltons and a bold run can’t be ruled out in this trappy race.
Well there you have it another jam packed blog post with plenty to look through before races start. The People’s Nap vote result will be updated when voting closes.
In the meantime please remember to keep stakes small and hopefully end the day with a few winners.
