Gowran Park Racing Tip: Murphy’s Mare Overpriced At 25/1
Goodwood was a real struggle, but at least we eventually unearthed a winner in Duke of Hazzard. He did it impressively too and he could be a very nice horse. The Listed Hurry Harriet Stakes is the feature in Ireland on Wednesday. With extra places available, Dave Stevos fancies a 25/1 shot each way. Check out his Gowran Park racing tip below…
Gowran Park Racing Tip: 6.50 Hurry Harriet Stakes (Listed)
A total of fifteen fillies and mares will line up at the start for the 9.5f Hurry Harriet Stakes. This Listed contest looks to be at the mercy of Who’s Steph for the in form Keane/Lyons team. Her recent form figures in Listed, Group 2 and Group 3 company read 22121 and her rating of 108 is 10lb higher than the next best in this race. She won over course and distance by 8L on her last visit on yielding and even with top weight she looks very hard to oppose.
There are four horses rated 98 and the biggest priced of those, Annie Fior, could run a massive race. This admirable mare ran a blinder behind Red Tea in a Group 2 last time at the Curragh (9f gd/fm). What made the performance remarkable is that she prefers an ease in the ground, according to her trainer Brendan Murphy. She has yet to encounter her preferred conditions since stepping into pattern company, but that will change today.
This daughter of the unraced Finsceal Fior loves it at Gowran Park. She was only 5th here on good ground in June over 7f. However, two runs on yielding/soft produced two victories at 7f and 8f. Padraig Beggy got a great tune out of Annie Fior last time and keeps the ride. She has to deal with some promising 3yos, and concede weight to them too, but 25/1 looks far too big and with 4 places available, an each way interest is advised.
