- OASIS PRINCE RIPON BID
- O’Brien eyes Curragh success
By Andrew Atkinson
Oasis Prince (4.40) trained by Mark Walford and ridden by Phil Dennis is tipped each-way by fromthehorsesmouth.info in the C4 Lloyd Landrover Ripon Handicap over 1m 4f on Saturday.
Five-year-old Oasis Prince finished last of six at Beverley (1m 1f) in August – when not getting a clear run and hampered – when returning to the Flat after a spell over Hurdles.
Oasis Prince, who ran second of 14 at Market Rasen last month over hurdles, ran well at Beverley over 1m last season, third under 10st 1lb when trained by Mark Johnston.
Despite not winning since June 2019, when landing a Class 2 at Yarmouth, Oasis Prince is good each-way value at odds of 14-1.
Mark Johnston trained Bowman (4.05) is tipped each-way by fromthehorsesmouth.info in the Class 2 Ripon Cathedral Handicap over six furlongs.
Three-year-old Bowman under Joe Fanning has won at Leicester, Carlisle and Lingfield this season, and finished fourth behind Oso Rapido at Pontefract on Thursday under 9st 12lbs.
At Market Rasen Donald McCain saddles Sacre Pierre (2.45) tipped to win the 2m Juvenile Hurdle under Brian Hughes after winning at Cartmel and Uttoxeter in July and August.
At Chelmsford Hugh Palmer trained Alhawi (7.30), Golden Mac (6.30) ridden by Louis Steward and Iesha (8.30) are tipped in an each-way Patent.
At The Curragh Giselles Ausie (1.25), Montenegro (1.55) and Jeroboam (3.05) trained by Aidan O’Brien are a noted trio.
