Today’s Irish tip runs in the 2m 7f handicap Chase at Downpatrick (4:05).
The Shark Hanlon-trained Ballinaboola Steel was an unlucky loser last time out at Limerick, where he just looked to have got to the front too soon. He was headed in the dying strides but to his credit nearly got back up to win on that occasion. He has only had four runs over fences and plenty of encouragement can also be drawn from his third at Wexford back in April.
He was raised 2lbs for his last run at Limerick, but the pair pulled well clear of the third place finisher on that occasion and he looks capable of returning to winning ways.
Recommend Bet: 4:05 Downpatrick, Ballinaboola Steel win @ 15/2 (8-1 in places)
