Today’s bet at Ballinrobe goes in the 2m2f handicap hurdle (6:50pm).

The Des McDonagh-trained Peace Party looks capable of striking off his current mark. He ran well at today’s venue over 2m1f last time, only getting going late on and beaten less than 3 lengths. A 4lbs rise for that effort looks manageable and conditional Eoin Walsh takes the ride, claiming a valuable 5lbs.

He had previously run with credit on his two previous outings since returning from a break, including when sixth in a stronger race at Fairyhouse in mid-April.  He has ground conditions to suit, this trip could well see him in a better light, and the yard are going well.

RECOMMENDED BET: 6.50pm Ballinrobe – Peace Party ew @ 8-1 (Quinnbet, Fitzdares, WillHill etc.)
