REECE’S LONGSHOT | Ballinrobe: Friday’s Each-Way Bet of the Day

A returning hurdler features at Ballinrobe for Friday’s each-way selection



Ballinrobe Racecourse
Derby De Thaix – 6.30 Ballinrobe (40/1 – Paddy Power + William Hill)

Ian O’Connor possesses a runner of potential value in the Michael Cawe Suspended Ceilings Handicap Hurdle, in the form of Derby De Thaix.

A former recruit of Joseph O’Brien, the eight-year-old’s only success to date came in a French bumper over four years ago.

Joseph O'Brien
Derby De Thaix began his racing career under the guidance of Joseph O’Brien and could run well at a price at Ballinrobe

However, the gelding produced a solid effort at this course back in August 2020, finishing second at the same mark of 91.

The gelding has struggled over the winter months and was even started on the flat at the huge odds of 250/1.

O’Connor’s recruit should be fresh after a six-month absence and could be slightly overpriced on his return here.

At 40/1, Derby De Thaix could prove to be decent value for the places in this contest at Ballinrobe.
