Point-to point

ROISIN HICKEY'S Champagne Fever looks the one to follow in the four-year-old contest which opens Brosna's two-day meeting this afternoon.

  • Go To

Tango Moll can take the mares maiden for Colin Bowe, and Ballyvoneen is given one more chance in the geldings maiden.

Verumontanum is taken for the winners race, while Present A Star is worth following in the older maiden.

Tomorrow, the Cecil Ross-trained Godsmejudge can take the confined and Bowfinger, for Willie Mullins, looks banker material in the Winners race. Old Supporter can take the geldings maiden and Jimmy Mangan can make the journey from Cork worthwhile with Annacarton in the Open.

David Christie looks set for a double at Armagh this afternoon with Bell On Bike and To Twig.

At Killaloe the match between Carrigeen Lechuga and Media Queen is the highlight in the mares winners race. The Liz Lalor-ridden Carrigeen Lechuga lacks experience, but may have the class for the already four-time winner Media Queen.

Baily Bridge can take the opener here.

At Tinahely tomorrow Send For Paddy took the Open here a few weeks ago and can double up.

Michael Winters can saddle the opening winner at Kildorrery with Thelastsupper, which was second last time.

Number Of The Week

1 Gamut sired his first winner in Ireland last weekend when Killiney Castle took the four-year-old maiden at Askeaton.

Horse To Follow

Slightly Tanned is yet another smart sort from Tom Keating's yard, which produced Hard To Swallow earlier this season.

Weekend Selection

Bowfinger is entered at Durrow and Tinahely and the Willie Mullins-trained gelding should be followed wherever he turns up.
