ANOTHER WINNER FOR JESSICA HARRINGTON: SHAMROCK looks ahead to the final race on the Leopardstown card this evening.
The closing maiden at Leopardstown tonight looks to be a shoot out between Mountain Rock and Sandymount Duke.
Preference is for the Jessica Harrington trained Sandymount Duke who is making his flat debut but couldn’t be in better form over jumps. He has won his last two races at Punchestown and Down Royal.
The big question is whether he will be as effective dropped back in trip to the 1m 7f tonight but I think he can be and he is again likely to lead from the front.
Mountain Rock isn’t exactly a sprinter himself. He has finished fourth in both starts on the flat but was a dual winner in bumpers at the start of his career.
It would be wrong to dismiss Sandymount Duke purely on distance grounds when the bigger question is whether there is anything that will be more suited by the trip – in this case I don’t think there is.
The remainder of the field looks very modest to put it mildly.
NAP: Sandymount Duke (9.00 Leopardstown)
