Roscommon Racecourse
Our racing expert has one selection on Monday from Roscommon

Our resident tipster Rhys Williams has analysed Monday's racing and has a sole selection at Roscommon.

  • Won with plenty in hand last time

  • Likely tactical setup to suit

  • Magnor Glory is overpriced at Roscommon

Roscommon - 17:18 - Back Magnor Glory

This novice chase is likely to be strongly run with Je T'ai Porte setting the pace and I expect Dreal Deal and Horantzau D'airy won't be far behind. That could set the race up ideally for Magnor Glory who was a very comfortable winner on his chasing debut at Roscommon.

He raced a bit keenly under restraint in midfield through the early stages before making headway to track the leaders early on the final circuit. He was still travelling well a few lengths behind the leaders in fifth jumping three out and once getting a clear run between the last two fences, he easily got to the leader and quickened away on the run-in without needing much encouragement.

The manner in which he took control of the race in the closing stages was notable and he should have a strong pace to settle off and close into today. While there has been some early market support for him, I think he's still overpriced and any 2/13.00 or bigger appeals.
