THE best racing over Easter is concentrated at Fairyhouse, with the track watering ahead of tomorrow's Irish Grand National.

The official going description is yielding which should suit EGLANTINE DU SEUIL (2.50) in today's big mares' championship final. She may have been sent off 50-1 at Cheltenham, but there seemed no fluke about her victory. Willie Mullins is mob-handed but Ruby Walsh has singled out my selection.

At Southwell, TIGRAY (4.45) is worth a bet following his second to in-form Lord Lamington over 1m 5f at Chelmsford City three days ago.

He raced over seven furlongs and a mile at Dundalk for Joseph O'Brien but Mick Appleby wasted little time moving Tigray significantly up in trip for his stable debut. Top weight Fly Nightly chased home a Godolphin winner at Lingfield and rates a threat along with likely favourite Mondain.

GORGEOUS GENERAL (5.15) has a bit to find with Socialites Red but I like the fact that Jack Mitchell replaces a 7lb claimer. Gorgeous General runs the track well and is an each-way price.

At much bigger odds GANG WARFARE (4.50) is worth an ew interest in the two-mile handicap. He isn't the most predictable but his last run when third to Mixboy and Addicted To You over 2m 2f here was a solid effort in this grade. Blinkers replace cheek-pieces. Hurdles winner Nelson Road could be thrown in, while Champarisi won well at Musselburgh from Navajo Star.

    according to the BHA, the bottom weight in a handicap is 8st unless specified. there is a horse weighted 8st2lbs with a 7lb claimer, the claimers full allowance is shown whereas in a condition type event a 7lb claimers allowance may not count and they wont show it, so it has lead to some confusion. for safety, i will have to assume the horse is going to run off 8st and lose the extra 5 on offer, which is another example of race cards misleading people in my eyes. It is also quite unlikely that a jockey can sink to this weight which makes it more likely that we will be running off 8st and not 7st9lbs, which makes the horse much less of a good proposition. however…

    515s – TICKS THE BOXES 5/1 will carry my money, albeit not as much as I would have if the extra 5 counted. He was a 2l 2nd to a southell specialist, a horse who went on to win 2 more times since and has gone up 8lbs, a horse which on collateral form gives my selection the beating of socialist red. the horse was beaten by captain dion but he was carrying around 20lbs less too and despite not winning for some time, i will chance Ellison can spark a revival in a horse who 2 years ago was winning off a legit 70.

    since earlier i looked at a couple more rivals in the race and some info regarding GORGEOUS GENERAL… the horse has done all his work with a 7lbs claimer, who is not on today, so instead of being up 4lbs he is actually up 11lbs since his last win, and up 7lbs since losing to Socilist Red by over 3l.. having seen grace entee who claims 7 win for me last night, i have no doubt that some claimers are not worth their salt, and jack mitchell may prove good enough for the general, however weight wise he is absolute no bet material.

    Well in alan on tigray. Bookies are shameless, hammer in the johnson horse and keep as usual – the eventual winners price very steady saw this and went in again, glad it paid off.

  13. 2 years ago

    A note on the last at southell. Mcentee had a winner yday. Since ben curtis a top jockey took over on global melody the price has gone from 10s to 5s. And also has a better result than TTb against the form horse i used.
