Reply to star at Leopardstown


Ballycorus Stakes
TIME: 6.55pm, SKY


A good night of racing at Leopardstown tonight with two Group 3 races on the card.

There’s been plenty of support for Lady Cecil’s Tickled Pink in the Ballyogan Stakes at 7.30 and everyone in racing will be hoping the yard can strike with one of their winners today.

Tickled Pink has an outstanding chance on the formbook too – dropping back to Group 3 from a Group 2 at York last time out and should be suited by the faster ground. She also has the perfect draw in stall one.

In the Ballycorus Stakes at 6.55 just six go to post but it’s a tight contest with just 4lb between the entire field on official ratings.

At Star Sports we’ve seen morning support for Reply (6/4 > 11/10) CHECK OUT OUR NEW STARTERS ORDERS COLUMN and there’s a lot to like about Aidan O’Brien’s colt who relished the same ground and distance at Naas last time out when bolting up in a Listed contest.

He should cope with the step-up in class. Lily’s Angel is tough but has had a busy season whilst with Sruthan the jury is out after a disappointing effort last time when the only plausible excuse was a failure to cope with the step-up in distance.
