Lucky 15 The Order Of The Day At Naas

On a tricky day of action at Naas there could be some each-way value to look out for on Beresford Stakes day and maybe an each-way Lucky 15 could make it an enjoyable afternoon.

Leg 1
Market moves in the opener will prove to be the best guide in the opening maiden and while Ballydoyle newcomers don’t have a sterling record of winning first time out, it could be worth taking a chance on Cypress Creek.

Ryan Moore rides James Cook which obviously suggests he is the stable preference but Cypress Creek is a full brother to Irish Derby and English St Leger winner Capri so a testing seven-furlongs at Naas…

might see him make a positive debut.

Leg 2
It’s a big day for Brendan Duke at Naas as he runs his stable star Warm The Voice in the Beresford Stakes but it is another two-year-old of Duke’s, The Broghie Man, who can outrun his odds of around 12/1 in the Foran Equine Irish EBF Auction Race.

The Broghie Man remains a maiden but has ran with credit in two previous maidens and a valuable sales race at the Curragh a fortnight ago. His experience can stand him well for this competitive race in which he gets an allowance for being a maiden but still looks value.

flat 1

Leg 3
Denis Hogan’s Tithonus has plenty of weight to contend with in the Joe McGrath Handicap but Killian Hennessy’s valuable 5lbs claim can give the consistent six-year-old every chance here.

A three time winner over the distance, Tithonus hasn’t managed to score in two outings at Naas and this will require a career best effort but he ran a blinder at York on his penultimate start and wasn’t disgraced in a big handicap at the Curragh over six-furlongs the last day…

but his return to the minimum trip on this ground can yield success.

Leg 4
Again the ground could be key in the finale where Canary Row drops in class from listed company for a handicap for Patrick Prendergast and similarly to Tithonus, his weight is reduced by a promising claimer with Dylan Hogan taking 7lbs off.

Canary Row was outclassed behind Riven Light at Listowel but he did win a listed race at Killarney prior to that and with a number of these runners having doubts about the soft to heavy ground, Canary Row can take full advantage from a decent draw.

Recommended Bets:
Cypress Creek (9/1) – 2.00 Naas
The Broghie Man (4/1) – 3.30 Naas
Tithonus – 4.30 (7/2) Naas
Canary Row (9/2) – 5.30 Naas
