Another Maiden For Harrington At Cork
An ability to handle heavy conditions is going to be key at Cork on Sunday with the track described as heavy all week and more rain still expected in Mallow but those conditions may have thrown up some good betting prospects on a card that is not littered with big fields.
Another Maiden For Harrington
Jessica Harrington’s Escapability didn’t show much on debut last season but certainly showed a lot of promise when running greenly to finish third on testing ground last month. It was a very taken performance from the colt who certainly could have won if the penny had dropped just a little earlier and on the basis that he is sure to come on for that outing and that he will get through the ground better than most…
Escapability is counted on to get favourite backers off to a winning start.
McCreery To Bloom In Feature
Just the five runners will chase listed success in the Noblesse Stakes and one of those is the busy but regular recent winner Clear Skies who certainly had a very profitable time at Dundalk over the last few months for champion trainer Aidan O’Brien.
The daughter of Sea The Stars has done all her winning on the all-weather but struggled when stepping up in class on Good Friday and although she has been placed in maiden company on testing ground this will be a new experience for her while Bloomfield should be more comfortable in these conditions.
Willie McCreery’s charge won first time out and has been second twice, both in good company and while she doesn’t have the recent race fitness that Clear Skies has…
Bloomfield’s is expected to make a winning start to her year.
Escapability (8/11) – 2.00 Cork
Bloomfield (11/8) – 2.30 Cork
