Andy Holding’s Monday Racing Tips


Horses are great creatures of habit and YOUNGNEDOFTHEHILL (NAP) (best price 5-1) will hopefully prove his propensity to come alive at this sharp, right track track once more comes to fruition.
One triumph in 31 indicates he’s not worth going overboard around, but it is important that his sole career achievement and several others have come in the Co Mayo place and following several reasonably promising performances with his own criteria on’away’ days, he seems poised to go nicely on his return to his happy stomping floor. A creditable fifth in a well-run handicap at Down Royal behind Party Playboy two begins ago signified he’s still got plenty of life at his legs regardless of his veteran status and that he wasn’t disgraced at Cork last time either when being held up off a slow pace didn’t suit. However, together with form figures at tonight’s venue of 122U, it is clear that for whatever reason he enjoys winging about these tight bends along also with trip and requirements in his favour also, Shane Nolan’s gelding could proceed near ending his trainer’s long, losing run.
ENGROSSED??(best price 9-2) conducted a great bit better than the bare end indicates over tonight’s route out time and she has given the nod although managed the opportunity to put the record straight on her return visit.
Well-supported to back her up past good effort over the exact same C&D, Martyn Meade’s filly instantly found herself supporting the eight-ball because she had been severely hampered and pumped out on the series to the first bend. Recovering her balance, she subsequently had to survive a wide trip with no cover on the wing going down the back straight and rounding the home turn so that it was no terrific surprise which she couldn’t really see out her race all of the way to the line. Clearly wel-suited by tonight route, the daughter of Tamayuz tries a new trip for the first time, but based on her run-style and pedigree, she is likely to improve to the excess yardage and if this turns out to be the case, she needs to choose high rank against similar opponents to what she’s been facing .
BUG BOY (best price 4-1) conducted a convincing winner for first time in 12 starts at Ffos Las last time out and having also run nicely over tonight’s time ahead, he rates a confident decision to keep his in-form handler directly in the zone.
Once again gradually away in the Welsh track, the boy of Big Bad Bob found himself with quite a little to perform as the field swung at home, but coming with a long, withering run down the exterior in the straight, he gradually picked off his rivals one by one to go on a listing a cozy success. Formerly , the three-year-old had run nicely over tonight’s C&D when runner-up to the helpful Oydis and performance was achieved despite receiving a barbarous trip out wide for a lot of the journey, his campaign deserved upgrading. Returning to the spectacle of the fine display in the rudest of health and hailing from a secure who has had a two winners in the past week, Bug Boy looks a safe bet to strike the framework at the very least. The unexposed Waterfront representing an in-form stable and jockey combination looks the main threat according to his run within tonight’s span last moment.
