Friday Morning – May24th 2024

6.50 Curragh

1 point each way Verhoyen (10/1 Bet365, 5 places or else 9/1 Paddy power/ Betfair, 5 places)

Verhoyen is a three times course and distance winner and is back on a dangerous looking mark. He won here last May on good ground off a mark of 81 and backed that up just over a month later when again winning off a mark of 87 under similar conditions. He was running off a mark of 90 on his first run of the year and after running poorly the last four occasions the handicapper has dropped him to a mark of 81. On his day he is easily capable of being competitive off this mark and is worth an each way bet.

7.50 Curragh

1 point each way Gordon Bennett (5/1 Skybet, 6 places or else 5/1 Generally, 5 places) 

Gordon Bennett has been well supported in the overnight market. He is a dual course winner back in 2022 including this 6 furlong trip when he won off a mark of 80 he won again here over 5 furlongs a month later off a mark of 90. He has been dropped to a mark of 79 after a disappointing 2023. His comeback at Naas was promising when he finished fourth of fourteen and he should go well today.
