Ray Flanagan with Listowel Wednesday selections
thought for the day: At the end of the day people are focused on their own welfare or perhaps their own families welfare.
Listowel Wednesday selections including a couple against the field in the featured Kerry National, always a keenly contested event.
Listowel 3.15- Canary Row
Canary Row did not shape too badly in the Ahanoora at Galway last time out and considering that race represented his first outing for a while he ought to be a shade more forward today. He will relish the tough conditions and with nothing particularly well handicapped this exposed sort could be in the mix.
Listowel 4.20- Haymount and Bishops Road
Willie Mullins often pulls a rabbit out of the hat in these handicaps and while he holds the race favourite , he could have a decent second-string to his bow in the shape of Haymount. A promising novice back in 2016/2017 he was not beaten far by Bellshill at Limerick and posted a career best when third to the great Tiger Roll in the National Hunt Chase that year. Another fair effort followed in the Irish National leaving the impression there was a decent pot to be had with him.
He has not fulfilled that promise yet evidently having had a few niggling problems but I thought he ran ok in a conditions chase at Galway on latest start receiving a fair speed figure in the process. He should relish the conditions here and a fluent round of fencing could see him surprise.
Bishops Road has a patchy profile but a decent record fresh is encouraging. His form in two renewals of the Rehearsal Chase is very good and is better handicapped than most today.
