Betfair Ambassador Joseph O'Brien shares who has the best chances of his Sunday runners at Cork and Tramore....

"Memyselfandmoi has been a work in progress, but I was very happy with her at the Curragh last time where she didn't get anything like a clear run."

Sunday

Cork

14:10 - Tar Heel and Prairie Dancer

Tar Heel has been a little bit disappointing in his last couple of starts. He has the ability to win one of these and hopefully this slightly longer trip will help him put it all together.

Prairie Dancer is a colt by first-season sire Territories that has been showing ability at home. As usual, we won't be burdening him with big expectations on debut and will just be hoping that he shows good promise for the future.

Blinkers to help Larado's improvement

14:45 - Larado

Larado showed some promise on his debut and should improve from that. However, this looks a particularly strong maiden, so it would be asking a lot for him to improve enough to go close. We've applied first-time blinkers and think they will help him concentrate.

15:55 - Salinity

Salinity was a bit disappointing on his debut at Gowran Park, but we never like to judge them too harshly on their first runs and hopefully he'll show much more on this occasion with that experience under his belt.

16:30 - Presgrave

Presgrave has been a little bit disappointing to date. We are trying him in cheekpieces here and hopefully they'll help him, but he needs to improve to compete in a handicap.

First-time tongue tie to do the trick

17:30 - Memyselfandmoi

Memyselfandmoi has been a work in progress, but I was very happy with her at the Curragh last time where she didn't get anything like a clear run. She looks ready to return to a mile now and the draw having been kind to her, I'd be hopeful she can run very well in a first-time tongue tie.

Tramore

17:15 - Touch Of Oscar

Touch Of Oscar was a little bit disappointing over fences last season, but he has had a good break since his last run and can hopefully start his campaign off on a positive note in this contest.
