July was the month I had hoped for and it was compounded by a frustrating Galway Festival, where there was far too much hitting the crossbar for my liking. Instead, I have to set out on a fresh approach to try and have a better month as we approach the time of the season that makes me very excited. With that in mind, I will be taking in the action from Roscommon this evening, where I have landed on two selections.
The first selection comes in the 7.00 race, which is the 2m5f maiden hurdle and one feels like there are only four or five in here with a form chance of taking out this race. There are certainly some competitors to the market leaders, but I am going to be siding with the top of the betting and I feel this is as good a chance as any for Manisanda to get off the mark over hurdles for the shrewd Lorna Fowler.
This horse has run some highly credible races, including in bumpers last season and her third last time out was probably a career best and the best form on offer in this race. She has been beaten once before at a short price but I wouldn’t look into that run too much, and this feels like it’s a very good opportunity to get this mare into the winning bracket. I am hopeful of a huge run and I feel the price of 7/4 with Bet365 seems generous.
The 7.30 race is the other maiden hurdle on the card and this 2m contest looks a lot more open than the previous affair, and I am quite keen on this occasion to take on those at the top of the market. Come on Du Berlais has shaped well in his british bumpers, but there is not much substance to that form and she was beaten last time out. Instead, I was very impressed by the run of Morning Logic last time out, who was posting a second good effort in three starts when finishing fourth last time out at a big price.
He represents a small yard in Tom Coyle, who had his first winner for a small time at Kilbeggan a few weeks ago, and has another decent chance earlier on during the card. This looks a nice type of horse though, and although he can be a bit keen, he should be able to run well and potentially outrun his odds. I feel he could be a shorter price if trained by a more fashionable trainer. At a price of 7/1 with Paddy Power, who are paying out 4 places in this race, he should be backed each way.
