Gowran Park – Saturday

Nap of the day – Winter (2.05)

2.05 – Winter - Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden – Win

Winter is narrowly preferred. She made her debut in a fair race won by Cuff over six furlongs at Naas in May and is likely to be suited by the better ground here and the notable step up in trip. Favoured by the draw, she can win from Elizabeth Browning who lost out to Thursday night’s Group 3 winner Promise To Be True over an extended seven furlongs at Tipperary at the end of last month. She holds Decisive Intent on that run and looks the pick of the Aidan O'Brien trio. Kiss The Wind was fourth to Rehana on her debut at the Curragh and is entitled to improve. Of the newcomers, Legitimus, Assam and I’m So Fancy have it all to do from wide stalls.

Exacta – 16-6

Trifecta – 16-6-5


2.40 – Radiantly - Median Auction Race – Win


Radiantly is the clear pick in what boils down to a match. She has been keeping the best of company this season and her fourth to the gambled-on Persuasive in the Listed Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot looks strong form. Tonkinese has it all to do at the weights but he is going well in handicaps since just losing out at Clonmel in early May, finished runner-up to the greatly improved Qatari Hunter at the Curragh and a fair sixth to Stellar Mass over a longer trip than this at Down Royal last time. Pretty Love has no chance at the weights.


Exacta – 3-2

Trifecta – 3-2-1


3.15 – Uninhibited - Irish Stallion Farms Fillies Maiden – Win


Uninhibited was never able to get competitive at Leopardstown earlier in the month but might be the answer to this. She came from the back of the field that day to finish fifth to the front-running Cirin Toinne and is possibly better judged on her seasonal reappearance here at the end of May where she had a little to spare over the remainder when third to Earring and subsequent Leopardstown winner An Cailin Orga. I’m Waiting made a fair start to her career when fourth to the selection’s stable companion Santa Monica at Dundalk and that might give her a bigger chance than Lorendano who is rated 69 after five starts. Flagstaff is likely to improve on her run at Leopardstown in October while it will be interesting to see what position newcomer Close To My Heart takes in the betting markets.


Exacta – 8-5

Trifecta – 8-5-2


3.50 – Scealtana - Thomastown Handicap – Win


Scealtana might just reverse Naas with No Biggie to land this. The pair met on soft ground earlier in the month with No Biggie coming out on top in pretty convincing style but conditions will be very different now and there is a 7lbs swing in the weights in the selection’s favour. No Biggie has since run down the field at Killarney and his stable companion Zig Zag, a winner here over the extended nine furlongs, might now pose the greater threat. Runmhar has run with cheek pieces on her last two starts but they are left off as she goes up in trip for this. She ran a nice race in a maiden over the extended nine furlongs here in early June and her chances are not easily dismissed.  


Exacta – 6-2

Trifecta – 6-2-1


4.25 – Ben Rumson - Gowran Park Apprentice Handicap – Win


Ben Rumson scored at Ballinrobe at the start of the week and he is taken to follow up. He came from well off the pace to win narrowly on Monday and a 6lbs rise might not be enough to stop him going in again. The draw has not been as kind to Gun Shoot who was runner-up to Trade Marked at Killarney last time having earlier finished fourth to the much-improved Xsquared. Phoenix Twist was a winner at Bellewstown at the end of June and she should go well again although the ground will be quicker now. Universal Mind is another with good recent form but he has a poor draw and Rockview Emperor, a previous course winner, is another with a chance.


Exacta – 7-10

Trifecta – 7-10-1


4.55 – Queen Alphabet - Like Gowran Park On Facebook Handicap – Win


Queen Alphabet has been running on the Flat, over fences and over hurdles this year and might be winning again as she continues to improve. She ran well in a valuable handicap hurdle at Killarney a little over a week ago but was a winner on her previous start, on the Flat, at Ballinrobe in June. She is only 6lbs higher now and looks a bet to win from Mainicin who went up 10lbs for her ready success over ten furlongs at Leopardstown. She wants the ground on the fast side and the same might be said about I’ll Be Your Clown who is back up in trip after good runs behind Ringside Humour and Qatari Hunter. Posing had the selection back in third place when winning at Dundalk in early April and she went on to finish a close third at Clonmel a month later.


Exacta – 4-6

Trifecta – 4-6-3


5.30 – Enough Is Enough - Racing Again August 10th Handicap – Each/Way


Enough Is Enough is something of a course specialist and looks the one to side with again. She is a three-time course winner and recorded her most recent success over a furlong further a month ago. The drop back to seven furlongs is hardly an issue after her effort behind Punches Pious at Tipperary a week ago. She races from a favourable draw as does Fairy Flute who flopped behind the selection her on her most recent start. However, she is better judged on her earlier win at Cork and might emerge as the biggest danger ahead of the consistent Easy Boy and Clear Focus. Shepherds Crook is the first reserve but must be considered if getting a run as he did well over this distance at Listowel in early June.


Exacta – 2-4
