Ballinrobe – 10th September: DOM’S NAP + NB | Friday’s 2 Best Bets

Our team’s two best bets for today’s action at Ballinrobe



Henry de Bromhead
Ballinrobe’s NAP: ABBEY MAGIC | 5:30pm Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

Off a lowly mark back over hurdles, Henry de Bromhead’s 10-year-old makes great appeal here given some of her recent form over fences.


She’s a whopping 31lb higher over the larger obstacles so has to be taken seriously on her racecourse reappearance and the step up in trip is of no concern.

Sean Flanagan is booked to ride once again, having steered her to success at the Galway Festival back in July.

NB: RUSSIAN DIAMOND | 6:00pm P&D Lydon Beginners Chase

Emmet Mullins’s charge remains unexposed despite frustrating over fences to date, falling on two of the three occasions.

The step up to the near three-mile trip is an interesting move and connections clearly feel he’ll stay.

Emmet Mullins has two runners at Ballinrobe on Friday

However, he’s clearly got plenty of ability and this looks a fine opportunity in an ordinary contest to get off the mark.
