RACE PREVIEW & TIPS (THURSDAY)

18:40 Tipperary We head over the Irish Sea to take in the fifth race from this evenings meeting from Tipperary. A very competitive nine furlong handicap where a case could easily be made for a handful of the runners. A 3rd placed effort for Summer’s Dream last time out was encouraging and a repeat of that performance will see her in the thick of things. The addition of blinkers for the first time for Turn On The Tears may squeeze out improvement which ensures she enters the reckoning however it’s the five year old Keep Believing that gets the nod. 5th on his seasonal reappearance after a four month layoff was very pleasing and he should come on for that effort. He now has a staggering 24lbs less weight (taking into account the jockeys claim) to carry since he last visited the winners enclosure. The trip may be a bit too far for him but he relishes heavy going so stamina shouldn’t be a great concern so expect Paul Nolan’s charge to go well. KEEP BELIEVING (WIN) – NAP
