Nice to comeback with winner on Saturday ,with Limato winning the July Cup in great style at Newmarket at recommended 6-1 ,relishing the return to 6 furlongs on fast ground .For tidy £360.00 profit .
Moving on to Monday, we have interesting 1 mile filly's & mares listed race in Ireland at Killarney .
13 runners declared for 1 mile Cairn Rouge Stakes at Killarney on ground described as yielding,though heavy showers forecast. The three main contenders look to be Creggs Pipes , Orcia & Earring .
CREGGS PIPES : Fast improving filly, since being stepped up to 1 mile ,including winning last two starts at the Curragh .Won very competitive 1 mile Premier handicap last time in good style off mark 84 .Takes step up in class ,though looks open to further improvement .
ORCIA : Consistent filly ,winning twice on the All Weather .Yet to win on the turf in 8 starts ,though has been running consistently ,including finishing fair 3RD at Leopardstown in listed company last time ,behind Foxtrot Charlie . Unproven on soft ground ,though should be thereabouts .
EARRING : Progressive 3-Y-0 filly ,won 9 furlong maiden at Gowran park at the end May .Showed big improvement last time ,when finishing close 2ND behind the useful Discipline in 10 furlong listed race at Naas .The Drop back in trip shouldn't be problem , though unproven on soft ground
VERDICT : Earring will be popular for A P O'Brien stable ,having finished excellent second in this grade last time at Naas ,though with plenty rain about, ground conditions likely to be testing ,odds around 7-4 look short enough for horse unproven on soft ground .
At the prices CREGGS PIPES looks the each-way value .She has looked much improved performer since being stepped up to mile.Also seems well suited by soft ground conditions.Will need to make further improvement to land listed contest,though looks open to plenty improvement over this trip. Odds around 6-1 look solid each-way value.
