DERMOT WELD’S once-raced Treasure The Cross gets the vote to land the Irish Stallion Farms’ EBF Fillies Maiden at Killarney this evening.
The daughter of Cape Cross made a promising start at Wexford in May and any improvement on that effort will surely see her go very close now.
Treasure The Cross, far from neglected in the market, was beaten three parts of a length into second by Kevin Prendergast’s Hedaaya.
The form appears reasonable, considering Hedaaya went on to fill the runner-up berth in the handicap won by Shareen at Leopardstown.
Liz Doyle’s Penny’s Bill can provide the answer to the Winner’s Enclosure At The Malton Novice Chase.
He was impressive when getting off the mark over fences at Limerick, beating Kennel Bridge by eight lengths.
Willie Mullins’ useful hurdler Persian City is an obvious worry, but he’s been absent for a long time and his travels in the market will be important.
Knight Eagle, with Sam James claiming 7lbs, can defy top weight in the Corcorans’ Furniture And Carpets Handicap.
He was a little bit disappointing when beaten a neck by Snap Alam at Ballinrobe, but another two furlongs now will be a help.
The nap falls on Gordon Elliott’s Final Day in the Baileys’ Outshine Hurdle at Downpatrick this afternoon.
He’s progressive and there was plenty to like about his performance behind The Fonze at Limerick last time.
