Today’s Irish tip goes in the Listed Vintage Tipple Stakes at Gowran Park this evening (5.50pm).
The Johnny Murtagh-trained Annerville makes plenty of appeal on the back of a fine performance in the Noblesse Stakes at Cork just over a fortnight ago. That was her first run of the season and she is a strong, scopey filly who will definitely be winning at listed company this season. She’s stepping up again in trip today after running well over 1m4f at Cork, where she stayed on well in the closing stages. Highly-tried in the Ribblesdale on her third and final start at three, she is clearly highly-regarded and looks an exciting filly for the year ahead.
While Annerville was well held by the winner at Cork, she beat home five of today’s opposition on that occasion. There should be plenty more to come on just her fifth career start and the yard are in cracking form, operating at a very healthy 22% strike rate in the past 14 days.
Recommend Bet: 5:50 Gowran Park Annerville win @ 3/1 (most firms, 100/30 in places)
