Tomorrow's Open at Tinahely looks set up for Send For Paddy to get the better of Donati.

  • Go To

Festival Bound will be hard to beat in the five-year-old geldings maiden for John Paul Brennan, while Northern raider Ishlana can have her consistency rewarded in the mares maiden and Satorie has been running in top-notch company of late and can take the concluding older maiden for Martin Hassett.

At Kilfeacle, John Gleeson's Thetalkinsover looks to be the one to follow. Baily Beau should get in the mix for Mouse Morris in the maiden race for five-year-old geldings, while Tyrone Golden Rain, as always, is the selection in the Open but will have to be at his best to see off Bobbawn and King Johns Castle.

Colin Bowe is strong handed in what looks a very decent mares maiden and Tango Moll, a decent second on her debut, gets a confident selection here. Philip Fenton's Fair Of Cappamore should see off the challenge of the John Costello charge Back in Focus in the six-year-old maiden.

Andrew Lee's Calabrese can take the opening confined race at Killeagh, while Michael Bowe's Limestone Cowboy will take a lot of beating in the winners race, with Gus Walsh's Ballyhampshire Man the big danger.

James Sheehan's consistent Waterhill Lady can score in the mares maiden and Liz Lalor may get among the winners with Carrigeen Lechuga in the mares' winners race as she bids for her third ladies title.
