1.45 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Median Auction 7f58y

Analyst's Verdict:
Guessthebill is the clear form choice after his good fourth to Ballet Shoes in Listed company last time out, but will need to be at his peak to hold off Sirjack Thomas who has a course and distance win to his name. South East ought to make it into third though Song of Dunes is also an interesting alternative.

Timeform Top Rated:
97 2. SIRJACK THOMAS Madeleine Tylicki William James Lee
96 1. GUESSTHEBILL John Patrick Murtagh D. P. Linehan (5)
89+ 3. SOUTH EAST J. S. Bolger K. J. Manning


2.15 Follow Roscommon On Facebook Handicap 7f58y

Analyst's Verdict:
Bubbly Bellini arrives here in great form after winning very easily at Fairyhouse last week and he can follow up despite his penalty. Ecoeye ran his best race in some time at Listowel and could be the biggest danger leaving An Saighdiur and Cosmic Symbol to fight for the final placing.

Timeform Top Rated:
94 9. ECOEYE Augustine Leahy G. P. Halpin (3)
93 5. BUBBLY BELLINI Adrian McGuinness Ross Coakley (3)
92+ 14. FAIR GAME E. J. O'Grady C. T. Keane


2.50 Budweiser Maiden 1m3f177y

Analyst's Verdict:
Sin Sin gets the narrowest of votes here for Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning but will still need to build on her recent second to come home in front. Jer's Girl is intriguing on her return to the flat and would win this with ease were it over hurdles, while Solo Saxophone has placed in all three starts and can do so again here.

Timeform Top Rated:
88p 6. JER'S GIRL Gavin Patrick Cromwell Seamie Heffernan
87 14. SIN SIN J. S. Bolger K. J. Manning
85 11. SOLO SAXOPHONE D. K. Weld Pat Smullen


3.20 Roscommon Racecourse Apprentice Handicap 1m3f177y

Analyst's Verdict:
Siempre Amigos is a tentative selection here in a competitive field but ran her best race yet when a running-on second at Galway and can win this if she is ridden a little bit closer to the early pace. Nannys Well may yet be the biggest danger to the selection and is not passed over lightly, while Lost History has form that suggests he can also get involved in the finish.

Timeform Top Rated:
79 7. SIEMPRE AMIGOS Gavin Patrick Cromwell N. M. Crosse (4)
78 4. LOST HISTORY J. J. Feane D. E. Hogan (4)
78 8. NANNYS WELL P. J. F. Murphy Ross Coakley


3.55 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Kilbegnet Novice Chase (Grade 3) 2m72y

Analyst's Verdict:
Montana Belle looked a chaser to follow when winning at Galway on her debut over fences and ought to improve enough to follow up here. Product of Love is the likeliest to chase the selection home in this field, though Rosie Alice and Rock On Fruity won't be far away either.

Timeform Top Rated:
156p 5. MONTANA BELLE Henry de Bromhead A. E. Lynch
153p 3. PRODUCT OF LOVE Alan Fleming Denis O'Regan
151p 7. LANDOFHOPEANDGLORY Joseph Patrick O'Brien M. P.


4.30 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Handicap Chase 2m5f

Analyst's Verdict:
William du Berlais stands out here under top weight and can follow up his Downpatrick win despite an added 9 lb from the handicapper. If his burden proves too much then Line View will be waiting in the wings to take full advantage, leaving Capture The Drama as the likeliest for third spot.

Timeform Top Rated:
132 1. WILLIAM DU BERLAIS Enda Bolger Mr D. J. McInerney (7)
129 5. FLEMENSTORM Edward Cawley C. D. Timmons (3)
125 2. LINE VIEW James Daniel Dullea Robbie Power


5.00 Roscommon On-Course Vets Maiden Hurdle 2½m50y

Analyst's Verdict:
Massey's Wood could not have been more impressive when winning his bumper at Listowel and if he can transfer that effort to hurdles he should prove hard to catch. Brave Poppy is the most obvious danger and will try to put his hurdling experience to good use, while Epic Ethel could well surprise a few of these and steal third place.

Timeform Top Rated:
129 1. BRAVE POPPY Charles Byrnes Barry Geraghty
101 5. MANHATTON ISLAND S. J. Mahon Donagh Meyler
90 7. TRUMP SIXTEEN S. J. Mahon Jonathan Moore


5.30 Thanks For Supporting Roscommon Racecourse I.N.H. Flat 2m

Analyst's Verdict:
Chesterfield King let his supporters down when only fifth on his bumper debut but is better than that and can come home in front with that run under his belt. Flawless Escape is the obvious danger for Gordon Elliott but may find this two miles too short, while Lady Sherami is also of interest and can get involved in the finish.

Timeform Top Rated:
91 6. LADY SHERAMI Matthew J. Smith Mr J. C. Barry (5)
83p 3. CHESTERFIELD KING J. P. Dempsey Mr J. J. Codd
82 5. MIDNIGHT LIGHTNING Luke Comer Mr D. T. Kelly (7)
