5.55 Fairyhouse - Warrior Brave @ 11/4

The 6f handicap (5.55) at Fairyhouse offers a good opportunity for WARRIORS BRAVE, - who was impressive when scoring at Listowel on Saturday and is fancied to defy a rise in the weights.

Warrior Brave was having just his second run since returning from a spell in Bahrain and could hardly have won any easier. He showed speed to get a prominent position and quickly put the race to bed with a big burst, looking value for the three-and-a-quarter-length margin.

He recorded a sound time in the process and there was a further length and three-quarters back to the third, so he spread-eagled the field in the manner of a horse ahead of his rating.

He has been rated as high as 101 in the past and was running off just 81 that day, so he clearly was well handicapped, and remains so even following a 10lb rise to a mark of 91 this time.

Warrior Brave loves racing around a bend, according to his trainer Ross O’Sullivan, so this 6f running at Fairyhouse should be right up his street, and he looks capable of following up.

6.03 Bath - Glamorous Breeze @ 5/4

The Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap (6.03) at Bath has attracted just three entries and GLAMOROUS BREEZE rates a good bet to see off her two rivals and make it back-to-back wins.

The five-year-old is at her best on fast ground at Bath and her form figures at the track read a solid 220322. It's a matter of time before she records a win here and this looks like her day.

She returned to form at Windsor two-and-a-half weeks ago when landing a 5f handicap on quick ground after missing the break. That might have worked out in her favour as the leaders went off quickly and set the race up for the closers, but Glamorous Breeze was nicely on top.

The solid pace ensured the time was a good one for the grade and Glamorous Breeze will evidently be suited by returning to Bath given her excellent record of places at the course.

She is up 4lb in the weights, but had one of these two rivals - Lil Guff - behind at Windsor and is fancied to confirm the places with lightning fast conditions sure to be in her favour.

GRAEME RODWAY'S TIP

Glamorous Breeze @ 5/4 - 1pt win

8.00 Clonmel - Kilballyowen @ 6/4

The Bulmers Light Beginners Chase (8.00) at Clonmel doesn't look like a strong race and it could go to KILBALLYOWEN following his chasing debut third at Downpatrick three weeks ago.

Kilballyowen was a point winner before running just three times over hurdles and it seems clear that a chasing career has always been the aim. He showed enough promise to suggest that he can break his duck in this sphere when beaten less than five lengths on his last start.

The selection jumped well in the main, but for a mistake at the third-last fence, and he stayed on well to take third before the second last, shaping as though he was in need of further.

His point win came over 3m, so the 2m31/2f trip at Downpatrick last time was always going to be shorter than ideal, and he has a huge chance now that he is upped to 2m7f on his occasion.

Trainer Tony Martin's string is in good form and Kilballyowen is one of the bets of the day.
