Tipperary - 15:03: Back Racing Royalty

Heavy conditions are on the cards for Tipperary on Wednesday, and the 15:03 7f Handicap has a few old favourites in it, including the hardy Skontovski. He's a pretty big price, but so is Racing Royalty at 9/110.00 and he'll certainly enjoy the conditions.

Indeed, 7f on heavy suits him down to the ground and all four of his runs last season over the trip (had alternated between 1m, 7f and 6f) were consistent with two wins and a close fourth and seventh finish.

He hasn't fired this term at the Curragh and Leopardstown, and with his mark falling 5lb from the start of the season, he's down to 69 now and able to run in 0-70 company today.

Billy Lee takes over from Paddy Harnett, and Lee rode him to success in both of his wins last term and gave him a cracking ride when waiting just off the pace in one.

He stays the trip well and is still relatively lightly-raced as a Godolphin bred and former Saeed bin Suroor inmate.

Tipperary - 17:08: Back Nusra

Folio and Nusra meet again in the 17:08 finale over the extended 1m4f and I am backing Nusra to get her revenge here.

Nusra travelled well and hit 1.69 in-running and she didn't do an awful lot wrong over the 1m3f at Limerick, but the pair were well clear of the third and Nusra might have a better chance over a further trip as she stays 2m.

Indeed, she scored at Dundalk previously over 2m and has a win over 1m4f at Ffos Las in soft, so her stamina is not in doubt.

If you subscribe to the 'bounce theory' then there is the possibility of Folio doing so, as his return last time was off a break of nearly 600 days.

She (Nusra) was once a long-standing maiden, and only has 1-17 to her record on the turf, but she travelled ahead of her mark last time and goes in soft and the race isn't exactly honeycombed with winners.
