BALLYROAN STAKES AT LEOPARDSTOWN: SHAMROCK looks ahead to the feature Ballyroan Stakes at Leopardstown tonight – a Group 3 over 1m 4f.
Group 3 action at Leopardstown tonight over 1m 4f with six runners going to post.
The 112 rated Johannes Vermeer is the hot favourite but not even officially the top-rated in the race.
That goes to The Grey Gatsby who is a pound ahead of the favourite and receives three pounds to boot but is struggling with his recent form and finished last of five in a similar event at the track last month over 1m 1f. This is only his second ever start over 1m 4f but he appeared to get home OK when second to Big Orange at Newmarket last year when still trained by Kevin Ryan.
Johannes Vermeer steps up to the mile and a half for the first time but stayed on well over ten furlongs to win a Group 3 at the Curragh last month and The Grey Gatsby was 4 1/4 lengths back in fourth.
That form should be confirmed and Johannes Vermeer is the call with biggest danger coming from class-dropper Spanish Steps – stable companion of Johannes Vermeer.
NAP: Johannes Vermeer (7.20 Leopardsrown)
