EASTERN LIGHT is the nap choice to get off the mark at the fifth attempt in the Irish Stallion Farms' EBF Maiden at Bellewstown tonight.
David Wachman’s daughter of Danehill Dancer has been mixing it with better company than she meets here and this represents a very suitable opportunity.
The selection was far disgraced in a Listed event at Cork last time, even if only finishing fourth of the five runners.
She was beaten a little over four lengths behind the smart Clondinnery and the speedy sort will be even better suited to dropping down a furlong now.
Added to that is the fact Eastern Light has been given a favourable draw in two and, hopefully, it will be case of out and away.
Tommy Stack’s once-raced Vamizi Island can win the Murphy Sand And Gravel Decorative Auction Maiden.
He was beaten less than a length and half into fourth behind Snow Mountain, Sydney Harbour and Free Art at Limerick, in a contest which has been working out reasonably well.
Ger Lyons’ Bank On Black can defy a 9lbs rise in the weights in the Essential Drogheda Magazine Handicap.
The daughter of Big Bad Bob is on the upgrade, being value a for a bit more than the length and a quarter she had to spare over Blue Dahlia at Tipperary last week.
Another going forward, Fantasy King, who beat Swiftmarc a short head at Leopardstown, is the one to beat in the www.pacon.ie Handicap.
Most interesting runner at Wexford is John Kiely’s Liss Na Tintri in the firstname.lastname@example.org Mares' Maiden Hurdle.
Basically, she has been disappointing since going over jumps, but remains a promising sort and has the capacity to outclass this opposition.
