Ray Flanagan with Saturday selections
thought for the day: It can be hard to get hanging with the hard men
Fuwairt (2nd 16-1) gave it a good shot at Fairyhouse on Monday.
A couple for an interest this Saturday.
Newmarket 3.40- UAE Prince
Ran a few good races in top handicaps last season albeit coming up short when fancied the most. Strong solo effort in Newmarket handicap on Guineas weekend although has been sidelined since with injury. Trainer Varian reports the horse in good fettle though and has gone well fresh previously. Strong travelling type who could find that a strongly run 9 furlongs in a big field are his optimum conditions.
Navan 4.30- Queluz
Has ran better than his finishing place suggests on a few occasions this season. Difficult horse to win with because if he is held up the race tends to get away from him and if ridden prominently he fails to sustain his gallop.
Hold up tactics on a stiff mile probably gives him the best chance and is also well drawn today towards the middle of the pack.
Might fall into place today.
