Oddschecker tips for every race at Killarney on Saturday.
The form of the Curragh maiden in which SEA LEGEND finished third on his debut has worked out exceptionally well, with the second, fourth, fifth and sixth all winning subsequently. Although slightly disappointing when only managing a similar placing on his second start, the Sea The Stars colt is worth another chance, especially on an easier surface. Gulf Of Mexico was just touched off on his debut at the Curragh before running below par when sent off odds on at Punchestown. The Aidan O'Brien-trained colt should be seen to better effect on this more galloping track. Simpson's Paradox came forward from his initial outing to run much better when third at Galway last time. The well bred colt needs to step up again but could well be capable of doing just that.Prediction : 1st Sea Legend 2nd Gulf Of Mexico 3rd Simpsons Paradox
It could pay to take a chance with BOLD RIBB on his debut for the Joseph O'Brien yard. Third at Newcastle on his sole start to date, the colt has a pedigree which suggests he may improve further on soft ground. Although strictly on form, he has a bit to find with the principals here, the son of Ribchester has less to prove than most. Any Dream Will Do holds an obvious chance on ratings but there must be a slight concern about her ability to act on testing ground. She disappointed at Bellewstown on her sole previous attempt but perhaps, it was that track, rather than underfoot conditions that found her out. If handling the ground, she is very much the one to beat. The Vik kept on nicely when second at Bellewstown recently and looks sure to be involved.Prediction : 1st Bold Ribb 2nd Any Dream Will Do 3rd The Vik
Although done no favours with a wide draw, ADAM'S ANGEL looks capable of a big run in this grade. The Francis Casey-trained gelding should be all the better for a recent return at Dundalk after a mid-summer break. Prior to that, the son of Prince Of Lir ran a nice race in a Gowran handicap that has subsequently thrown up plenty of winners. He looks a thoroughly genuine type who will be staying on better than most. Linger For Longer needs to settle better than last time but if doing so, the filly is capable of being involved. The form of her Tipperary second has worked out exceptionally well in the interim. Stormie Outlook didn't enjoy the best of runs when fourth at Listowel recently so that form can be upgraded slightly. She remains open to improvement after just the five starts.Prediction : 1st Adams Angel 2nd Linger For Longer 3rd Stormie Outlook
STARTING MONDAY could represent a bit of value having run much better than his final placing at Listowel recently. The five-year-old was bumped leaving the stalls but did remarkably well to get back into the race. He was then in the process of launching a challenge down the outside of the field when hampered for a second time over a furlong out. Cosmic Vega has dropped a long way in the handicap in recent times but has hinted at a revival on his last few starts. With the Michael Halford stable back among the winners of late, he holds an obvious chance. Previous C&D winners Dragon Of Malta and Kodiac Prince are running well enough to give them chances in what looks a very open contest.Prediction : 1st Starting Monday 2nd Cosmic Vega 3rd Dragon Of Malta
STAR KISSED can go one better now, having just been touched off on her racecourse debut at Cork. With the winner following up next time and the fourth subsequently winning his maiden, the bare form looks relatively strong. The Ger Lyons-trained filly is entitled to improve from that initial experience and if doing so, she will take beating. Hotter Than Hades has already picked up some blacktype but still remains a maiden after five starts. The Make Believe filly undoubtedly has the ability but also has questions to answer now following a below par run at Galway. Lizzy's Filly has improved with each step up in distance so has to be considered now that she tackles this trip for the first time. Oh So Lovely needs to improve but it is dangerous to discount any Ballydoyle filly, especially at this track.Prediction : 1st Star Kissed 2nd Hotter Than Hades 3rd Lizzys Filly
QUEEN OF SEDUCTION has a big pull in the weights with Butterfly Garden that she could take advantage of. She was beaten half a length into second by that rival over 1m4f at Listowel last month, but that was only her second crack at a handicap and the first-time cheekpieces appeared to bring about improvement. That outing confirmed that she is adept on testing ground. Butterfly Garden is in a rich vein of form with two victories and three runner-up berths since July. She is likely to put in another solid effort. Your Honor beat Butterfly Garden by half a length at Sligo in August. He didn't back that up in Roscommon. however, a return to slower ground could help. Not Just Any Eagle was behind the aforementioned pair in fourth at Listowel and will be eyeing more prize money.Prediction : 1st Queen Of Seduction 2nd Butterfly Garden 3rd Your Honor
SIX FEET APART has been placed in her last couple of maidens on the Flat and looks poised for a big run. Those races in Tramore and Clonmel were on good going, however, the cut in the ground that she is due to encounter should aid her cause. She won her maiden hurdle on yielding ground and it is worth noting that she also won at Listed level in that sphere, so she has a touch of class. She is rated 7lb inferior to Pahlavi but, with Jake Coen's claim factored in, receives 10lb from him. Pahlavi was beaten a long way into second over 1m6f at Gowran Park, but is probably better judged on a staying-on third over 1m4f at Cork. He may not want too much rain, though. Beautiful Chaos avails of Jamie Powell's 7lb claim and is more than capable of mixing it with the pair above. Prediction : 1st Six Feet Apart 2nd Pahlavi 3rd Beautiful Chaos
