Tramore: BLOODSTONE | 5:45pm Pat & Winifred Woodbyrne Memorial Beginners Chase | Dom’s Pick
Henry de Bromhead’s charge makes his chase debut under rules and remains a maiden after 12 starts.
However, he improved over the last couple of starts over timber, including a second at Sligo last time out earlier this month.
He has point-to-point form with Ferny Hollow, Captain Tom Cat and Dreal Deal, all classy sorts in their own right, so if the switch to obstacles can bring out that level of improvement, he could be a nice prospect now heading over fences.
NB: MISS TEMPO | 7:15pm O’Neill’s Bar Rated Novice Hurdle
A former winner at Tramore, the young daughter of Milan has won two of her four starts, including a point, and has the benefit of 5lb claimer Hugh Morgan onboard here.
Her campaign has been stretched out pretty nicely and she makes her reappearance after two months off the track, but her previous form around her makes her a serious contender for the County Waterford yard.
This doesn’t look the strongest of novice events, albeit Denise Foster’s Mr Caplan who won at Wexford last time, but the selection can strike again while the iron is hot.
