Irish Derby Weekend & Northumberland Plate Tips?

If like me you’re doing the sensible thing and boarding an Aer Lingus flight to Dublin and making the short hop to the Curragh this weekend then you’ve every right to be excited, for while John Oxx might not have made his mind up about Sea The Stars taking his place in the Irish Derby, everything else looks set fair for a cracking two days racing at the County Kildare venue under the gaze of the RTE cameras.

Just keep your fingers crossed your flight isn’t similar to the one I caught a short while back for the Irish Guineas weekend containing a hen party from St Helens, who chose the ideal location of the rear rows of a passenger aircraft to stage a fight over who exactly had earned ‘air miles’ with the prospective groom, so to speak. With the insults raging and a bout of shoving occurring at 34,000 feet my best piece of advice is not to let them catch you laughing. I know this to be good advice as I failed to heed it….

Look to Nad Al Sheba for a Thursday winner?

Mike de Kock’s Imbongi looks to be the best bet on a cracking card at Nad Al Sheba on Thursday afternoon – a three-time Grade 2 winner at home in South Africa last year – Imbongi has delighted connections with his work since arriving and can score at the first time of asking in Dubai in the Marju Trophy at 6.15pm.

The slight drop in trip to the extended six furlongs should be to his advantage, and with bags of speed to overcome a wide draw it can prove worthwhile to snap up a bit of 9/2 with Stan James.

Imbongi should ultimately prove a good deal better than this and could well be one to follow.
