Castlebride Bolt should take plenty of beating in tonight’s sixth race at Youghal.
Dympna Moroney’s dog hasn’t been seen since September but a recent 17.88 trial suggests he’s ready to do himself justice on his return.
Tonight’s race represents a drop in grade for the son of Farley Turbo and Castlebride Jane and, with a decent start, the strong-running sort will be very hard to hold.
The danger may come from Seaview Lark, who was below her best when last seen but also enjoys an ease in class, and will be hard to keep out of the frame.
Corrin Emma can take the finale for William Kelleher.
The bitch has developed into a very smart sort since her return from Britain, and her most recent effort, when runner-up behind Burgess Rumble at Curraheen Park, gives plenty of encouragement.
She has plenty of form around this track, and was a winner in this grade when last here.
With a good start, the classy daughter of Milldean Panther can prove too strong for her rivals. The danger may come from Villiers Legacy, who is drawn to lead along the inside, and should be positioned to take advantage if the chasers find trouble.
Tuckeys Timer can take a competitive-looking eighth race.
Martina Manahan’s bitch won well in similar grade, beating an in-form rival quite readily, in late November, and ran a super race in defeat behind Coolbeggan Eve next time out.
There’s plenty of early pace along the inside in this race but also plenty of potential for trouble.
Drawn in five, with the rails-seeking Gotnewpairshoes on her inner, Tuckeys Timer should enjoy a clear run to the turn, and can use her stamina to gain the day.
Gotnewpairshoes has got to be respected, despite a tough draw.
He is down in grade, following some luckless runs, and should not be dismissed lightly.
