Nap of the day – Dream Walker (3.55)
2.15 – Papal Motel – Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Hurdle – Each/Way
Papal Motel would not be winning out of turn. His last two starts have been on the Flat and he ran a huge race from a poor draw when third to Andratx and Camlann here on Thursday afternoon. He had earlier finished closer when just losing out at Limerick and on his most recent effort over hurdles was second to Whiskey Sour at Tramore at the beginning of June. That looks good from now and he is chosen ahead of Newstart which was a fair fourth to Pateen here on Monday night. Afatcat would have a chance on his run behind Knockmaole Boy at Limerick a month ago and the likes of Treasure Chest, Lisa’s Legacy, Ten Theatre, Mezajy and Mr Moondance will have their supporters too.
Exacta – 6-9 (Papal Motel/Newstart)
Trifecta – 6-9-1 (Papal Motel/Newstart/Afatcat)
