After two NAP’s landing in a row over the sticks, including yesterday at Cartmel, our team is back with our best bet of the day for the card at Ballinrobe.

Joseph O'Brien
Can our pick of the Joseph O’Brien duo in Ballinrobe’s 4:55pm contest land the honours?

Following a bloodless win at Bellewstown last time out, Persia looks like he could take some stopping here for Joseph O’Brien.

Formerly with Aidan O’Brien on the flat, he’s transformed into a better hurdler having picked up two successes from his previous three outings.

He looks well in at the weights here given his mark of 116 and there remains plenty of room for improvement with the slightly longer trip playing into his advantage last time.

The County Kilkenny yard remain in good form with winners aplenty across the weekend and the four-year-old JP McManus contender looks a straightforward enough type in this field.
