Following a 5/2 winner and an 8/1 place yesterday, Steve Ryder previews two races on Sunday 12th May. P&L +47.46pts.
2:15 Leopardstown- Zihba 5/2 (1pt)
Zihba won this race last season as a 3 year old and comes into the race this season on the back of a good comeback run. His form tailed off last season after victory in this having ran in the Irish 2000 Guineas and two other group races.
Zihba ran well to finish second on his return over this C&D in the Heritage Stakes when only beaten ½ length and he should prove hard to beat in this with question marks about Hazapour dropping in trip.
3:15 Killarney- Mitchouka 10/1 (0.5pt ew)
Mitchouka has ran a remarkable 19 times over obstacles since joining Gordon Elliott as a juvenile hurdler last season but is now beginning to look well handicapped over hurdles. He bounced back to form at the Punchestown Festival when 4th(placed 3rd) off a mark of 132.
Mitchouka runs here off the same mark and should go well in a less competitive race with four places on offer.
