SEAN - Curragh 8.00 a 5 Furlong handicap with 22 declared, Going is currently "Good" but lots of wet stuff so I think probably Yielding or Soft in the going description by tonight. High Draw is favoured here but the tough finish and change in Going means I have not discounted anything draw wise.
Narrowed the 22 down to a manageable list of 6, of which I think Comptons Finale (dr 8) could run very well, Miacomet (dr 17) drops from 7 furlongs to 5 furlongs, has sometimes finished fast but too late over 6 furlongs but one who could come with a late rattle but logic says a bit too late. If it got desperately heavy by "off time" one for a small tracker bet. The other one I had a close look at was Paved Paradise (dr 10) who also drops in trip and if rain was a little less and was Good to Soft or good to Yielding another to have a little side punt on just before the "off".
The tips though are SHORE STEP looks the one to beat and ticks every box, like Watermelon though yesterday I see more as an each way save so 1/2 point as I have a better view / more confidence on these pair; POLLY DOUGLAS has a good draw in 21, any rain is a plus, is very consistent around this mark and ideally suited to big fields and best form often comes August / September, will be disappointed if not right in contention. ENTER THE RED comes off a 102 day break but has won and been competitive off longer breaks and will love any rain too. Drawn in 13 is not ideal but the form and freshness just make the price look very appealing.
(Tracker based on Going at "off" Miacomet (if heavy) / Paved Paradise (if Good to Soft or Yielding) - small e/w)
