It was a case of last chance saloon about yesterday’s action from Leopardstown as I badly needed Rosscarbery to pick me out of the early July slums and find us a winner. She duly obliged, winning gamely at the line and already boosting what has been a very lucrative summer for her. Action now turns to the jumps, and it’s Midlands National day at Kilbeggan, and there will be a fiery crowd down there this evening – and hopefully they will be watching some good National Hunt racing.

I have a few selections from the card, and I have a hope that it might be a day for John McConnell, down at a track which is not too far from his base. Starting with the 5.50 race, which is a maiden hurdle over 2m3f and has a De Bromhead trained fav that is now a very short price. However, he let favourite backers down last time out and despite returning to a more suitable distance, he can be afforded to drift by at odds on. Instead, I am hopeful of a big run from Bella Union, who equipped himself well in two British bumpers last season and now makes his hurdling debut in a heat that is winnable in my opinion. His first effort especially, when a close fourth behind a good horse called Maxillian rates as positive form, and he should be up to running well. At a price of 6/1 with 888Sport, he should be backed each way. 

The 7.20 race is a fascinating beginners chase over 3m1f and this race has the conundrum between promise and experience. I have always been a big fan of Chinx Of Light, and I will not be deserting him here, despite it being his chase debut and against some good rivals. He has shown himself off to be highly progressive this season so far, netting wins at Down Royal and Wexford and I don’t think we have seen the best of him yet. He stays very strongly and in the main, was a fluent jumper – so I have very few reservations about him going into this evening. I have a feeling he could be one of the most talented horses in McConnell’s yard, and I’m sure he is hoping of getting him rocking and rolling over fences as quickly as possible. At a price of 2/1 with Bet365, I am hoping he can hit the back of the net again. 

That leaves us with the 7.50 race, which is the feature Midlands National contest over 3m1f. This is a race that always excites me and I was delighted to find the winner last year with The Big Lense. I am hoping for similar this time around, and I’m going to war with two for the race. Starting with the aforementioned horse, The Big Lense – who is trying to win this race for the second year running off the back of an identical prep. He showed not much last season, until a big absence and to come back to win this race. After performing poorly in four starts since this success, we have not seen this horse since November, and the freshness angle, alongside his excellent record of running well at the track, is cause for serious optimism. I am hopeful of a repeat bid, and at a price of 10/1 with Bet365, who are offering 4 places, he should be backed each way. 

However, I look at the current prices and the current market, and I simply can’t allow Freewheelin Dylan to go off unbacked here, and he has some fine course form and has been in good heart for a number of years now. He ran a stormer in the Grand National, and has been given some needed time off since then, but he likes it around here, he likes the ground and Richie Condon is great value for his seven pound claim. If able to get into his customary good rhythm on the front end, he might get a few of these off the bridle and struggling with their jumping sooner rather than later. He certainly should not be as big a price as he is, and I would be kicking myself if he ran well and I went and didn’t back him. At a price of 14/1 with Bet365, I’ll be backing each way as well.
