I will pass you over to Charlie, who will run you through his Sunday Service and recap on Saturdays selections….. See ya for Final Word!
Cheers Rich, it was nice to return to action with a winning Nap yesterday although I did have a 5-1 winner on the Final Word from the 2 horses that didn’t make selections. So without further adieu let’s get straight down to Sunday’s selections listed below.
Loug Derg Jewel -Winner of last two starts both at Ayr over 2m 4f, goes up in trip to 2m 7f 96y today and should be thereabouts again and could still have more to come.
Declamation -Was 2nd here back in December over 6f in a Class 6 handicap, has won twice here since then both over 6f in a Class 6 and a Class 7 handicap. Goes up in trip to 7f and 14y today and although finished 8th when last tried at this distance at Ayr, I feel a return to that distance at this track will be more suitable seeing horse has won here before.
Art Of Synergy -Was a winner when last seen at Kilbeggan over 2m 3f in a Maiden Hurdle back in May of last year. Has a lengthy absence to overcome but Noel Meade is a shrewd trainer and he will have this horse more than ready for this race and with Sean Flanagan doing the steering ticks a lot of boxes and this son of Yeats can make a winning return today.
Well that’s my 3 selections out the way, all that’s left is to wish you all luck if following, please remember to keep stakes small and hopefully end the day with a few winners. I will hand you back over to Rich for the Final Word.
Final Word –
A couple of winners from our thoughts yesterday, brilliant if you won a few quid too…
Kirpke(1.55 Southwell) makes AW debut after making turf debut at Doncaster on October 27th, finishing a 4 length 3rd in a Class 5, 7f maiden, which was won by Breath Caught. Runner up Flavius Titus has since won at Kempton.
Over in Ireland at Fairyhouse, Poker Part(2.05) who is seeking a third win in a row, having won over 2m 3f at Clonmel by 3/4’s of a length before heading to Tramore on December 14th and stepping up to 2m 5f when winning by 5 lengths, now steps up to 3m…..
Please remember that Final Word are just our thoughts and are not part of P/L
All the Best – Charlie and Rich
