Fairyhouse Preview- Sunday, 13th July
The Listed Belgrave Stakes is the feature race of a 7 race card and Sailors Swan gets the vote under Pat Smullen for in form Dermot Weld. This Improving son of Henrythenavigator was an excellent second to Diamond Jubilee runner-up Due Diligence and a reproduction of that run could be enough especially as he gets 11lb off the probable favourite Darwin.
In the concluding Like Fairyhouse On Facebook Handicap, John Oxx’s Primogeniture makes appeal in what looks a tricky race. The step up to 12 furlongs could be the making of him and the form of his Navan run has been well advertised since.
In the 4:10 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Fillies Maiden Dermot Welds Emerita looks the best value bet on the card having ran a race full of promise in a hot maiden at the Curragh. The form has worked out very well and he shaped a lot better than the result having dwelt, he pulled hard early on only to weaken in the closing stages. On that evidence the drop back to 10 furlongs should suit as should the ground. The likely favourite Tap Dancing is opposable even allowing for his solid form in the book he could set up this race nicely for the selection.
