Ray Flanagan with Sunday selections
Cork 3.40- Peace Charter
Peace Charter displayed nice form as a two-year old most notably when third to Irish 1000 Guineas favourite Albigna at The Curragh. Was a big eye-catcher on seasonal return in the Leopardstown Guineas Trial when all dressed up with nowhere to go behind Love Locket and interesting to see if she can enjoy a clearer passage this afternoon.
Cork 5.45- Arthurian Fame
An open contest with Arthurian Fame a speculative selection. Representing the bang in-form Joseph O Brien stable, Arthurian should be sharper today following his recent return in the Ragusa Handicap at The Curragh and the easier ground may also be a help. Was a decent sort in 2019 winning twice early in the season and far from disgraced in a hot Ascot handicap behind Baghdad. Racing off a feasible mark once again factoring in the jockey’s claim and capable of causing a surprise.
Fairyhouse 4.55- Throwaway Line
I like to keep an eye on some of John Joe Murphy’s horses from time to time and the Co Cork handler’s stable is well capable of landing a few good handicap winners.
This horse lost his way somewhat last season but there was a lot more encouragement on his recent return at Gowran staying on from off the pace to finish fourth in a similar handicap. Could be improvement to come and reasonable chance here.
