Tipperary double on Friday

Paul Ferguson has two selections from Tipperary for us on Friday; Shanroe at 2.00 and Hallowed Star at 4.05. Compare odds and bet.

Tipperary stages a decent jumps card on Friday, where the feature is the Grade 3 Grimes Hurdle, which looks to be a very strong renewal, and is often a good guide towards the Galway Hurdle.

Later on the card, Shanroe (2:00) is interesting on handicap debut, having won on the Flat just last week. Formerly a smart bumper horse (won three times in England, after finishing behind Floressa on debut), he was a warm order when brought down on his hurdling debut at Catterick, before running in competitive maiden hurdles in Ireland (also took his chance in the Grade 2 Moscow Flyer behind Andy Dufresne). He might have found the ground too soft at times, and showed his well-being when staying on strongly to win a Limerick maiden over an extended 1m4f. An opening mark over hurdles of 109 makes him interesting, on this sounder surface, and I am hoping he might be over-looked in the early market.

Similar comments apply to Hallowed Star (4:05) in the concluding bumper, who should also appreciate the better ground. Shark Hanlon’s five-year-old dropped away when last of five at Down Royal a year ago, but stepped forward when third in a decent Stratford bumper, on the eve of the Cheltenham Festival. He travelled well for Brian Hughes that day, whilst leaving the impression that the ground was on the soft side.

Friday’s selections:
2:00 Tipperary – Shanroe; 13/8 888Sport
4:05 Tipperary – Hallowed Star; 13/2 Betfair
