Brendan to Shine in the 4.23

Today’s Multi

3 £1 doubles & £1 ew treble

Shine On Brendan 4.23 @ 7/2

Slainte Mhath 4.58 @ 9/4

Giladah 4.35 @ 5/1

Selected Leopardstown – soft ground on this mostly flat and galloping track

4.35 Interesting that Giladah still holds a Group 2 entry and was also aimed at Listed company last season . She runs for a top stable and did well in her recent comeback spin when a close 3rd at Cork . Cruelly she’s been shoved up 3 pounds and soft ground not ideal , but is 2 from 2 at the track and nicely drawn .

1/4pt  win Giladah @ 5/1

Selected Newmarket – soft ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track

1.15 Anmaat is a prolific and useful sort but work cut out to give 5 pounds to 2021 Derby hero Adayar , who’s a shade of odds on .

No Bet

1.50 The luckless HMS President comes here on the back of yet another 2nd , his 5th in 6 races ! He’s effective at the trip and worth chancing him on softer ground on a stiffer track .

1/4pt win HMS President @ 7/1

2.25 Plenty of unbeaten and prolific fillies in this Listed Race and impossible to know which one will have the edge , but it was hard not to be taken by Sumo Sam’s debut win here and both the longer trip and softer ground likely to be in her favour .

1/4pt win Sumo Sam @ 6/1


3.40 The 1000 Guineas and the short priced fav is the 2 from 2 Tahiyra , winning both of her starts with ease , brings the best form to the table and proven on the ground , and extra furlong expected to be in her favour . As Dream of Love is the 3rd fav , worth a try on Caernarfon , who beat her fair and square over C&D in the mud last season and her hold up style could well be an advantage with a lot of early pace on .

1/4pt ew Caernarfon @ 25/1

4.50 Gulmarg is a consistent sort and ran well over C&D last time off this mark and goes on soft ground . Both Hectic and Kadovar would do well to get competitive under stiff penalties .

1/4pt win  Gulmarg @ 5/1

Selected Hamilton – good to soft ground on this undulating , galloping and stiff track


3.10 A case can be made for most of these but at the odds worth a try on the unexposed Don’t Look Back , very effective on easy ground and likely to relish this stiff C&D.

1/4pt win  Don’t Look Back @ 9/1

4.23 Course specialist Shine On Brendan comes here on a much improved effort when 2nd in a small field yet competitive good ground Ayr handicap . Stays on the same mark, his last winning mark , and a return to this track an obvious positive for this 3 time course winner .

1/2pt win Shine On Brendan @ 7/2

4.58 C&D winner Slainte Mhath is holding his form really well despite now being on a testing mark and this late player is just a pound higher for his recent close 2nd in a big field Thirsk sprint in the mud .

1/2pt win Slainte Mhath @ 9/4
