Ray Flanagan with two selections for Friday.
Two darts ahead of the Halloween weekend’s racing.
Down Royal 3.50-Pairofbrowneyes,
Pairofbrowneyes was pretty unproductive as a novice over fences back in 2014, but he reverts to the larger obstacles today off a potentially workable mark judged on the pick of his best hurdles efforts last season. He competed well in decent contests such as the Boyle Sports Hurdle and was unlucky to bump into some talented opponents like Sort It Out on other occasions. He won first time up last year and the forecast wet weather tomorrow will be a big help if softening the ground.
Newmarket 3.10- Rite to Reign
There may be one or two better handicapped, but Rite to Reign has a definite chance on the pick of his efforts and may benefit from dropping in grade today. Philip McBride’s gelding has competed in some top staying handicaps all season. He shaped better than the final placing indicated in the Cesarewitch last time and will likely be putting in some good late work from off the pace today.
