Our presenter and Sunday columnist Angus McNay thinks 4 contenders are price holding in Sunday’s card. Get pleasure from all Punchtown and Kelso Stay on Racing TV,
Final week we had one winner and three disappointing second locations, so hopefully we will keep away from the crossbar on Sunday’s column this week and discover the again of the online with these 4 picks.
2.12 Kelso, Cirque Royal
Cirque Royal was a simple winner final day trip in Perth and it’s stunning that the connections didn’t go for the novice handicap handicap, however it’s price taking earlier than beginning the simple possibility odds.
Cirque Royal was a helpful 12-furlong performer alongside Charlie Appleby and was final seen working right into a hurdle previous the 95 mark on the flat. Now with Gerald Stephen Quinn, he has proven he has nice potential when he wins the primary hurdle with ease. 8½ size final.
That flat observe allowed this quick horse to point out his pace, which is his fundamental asset. He has a flat observe right here once more and a pointy floor, which suggests he must be very quick and stylish to his rivals.
2.47 Kelso, the place to exit
He makes positive to go effectively and should make amends for the defeat final time.
The race seems to have been ready for the exit to the place he completed his superb second at Ayer, behind a well-treated and unplayed raider from Eire, however extensively held the opposite 4 within the race. defeated.
This Class 4 competitors appears simpler than the Class 3 assignments he contested final time, whereas one among his final two victories has come on this observe. The mark of 110 shouldn’t be subsequent to it.
3.05 Punchtown, marshal
He’s behaving effectively previous the 102 mark now he has returned to the hurdles.
Marshall is an effective chaser and gained at Wexford final October by a rating of 113. Given that he’s simply as efficient at small obstacles, it’s straightforward to guess that he’s effectively.
He additionally appears to be in fine condition after his newest run at Downpatrick, shaping up very well to complete third after a six-month lay-off. It regarded like he was drained within the closing levels, the place the shortage of current outings in all probability made an influence. He has three weeks to get better from these exertions and should due to this fact survive the dreaded surge.
He appears poised to win and if he was robust out there my confidence would have been even greater.
5.25 Punchtown, pink within the park
She has extra potential than she has in her 4 begins thus far and, after a brief break, I feel she will be able to begin to fulfill her potential right here.
Pink within the Park is a powerful touring sort who travels like one of the best horse in a slow-moving race in Fairyhouse Two, however runs out late to complete second. Final time, she was put in a sluggish working race and was at an obstacle in a selected place.
The important thing to her success could also be a powerful tempo and she will be able to gallop effectively with numerous runners right here that require the excessive pace she wants. It’s time for him to understand his potential and this may very well be the start of higher issues.
