Race Tip

Crispy Cat has done nothing wrong after making all to land his maiden at Cork last month and if he tries the same tactics here, it may take a decent horse to hunt him down close home. That description may apply to BLACKBEARD, who showed signs of inexperience before winning at Dundalk and is entitled to improve for that and his first start on grass here. He could well go on to better things over the summer. Although Vanguard Star is unraced, it is interesting that connections run him here instead of an easier-looking maiden elsewhere.
