Today’s tip runs in the 1m handicap at Leopardstown (6:45).

The John McConnell-trained The Pargey Bee looked progressive in early season runs at Gowran Park.  On the first occasion, he was beaten less than a length into 4th over 7f, the form of which has worked out very well.

He was third over a mile next time, with the winner going in again twice since, and now rated 32lbs higher.  You can put a line through our selection’s last run at Roscommon, as the ground was heavy and he clearly didn’t handle it. That does however add some value to his price. The Pargey Bee runs off a lowly mark of 58 today and I believe that could underestimate his potential.

Siobhan Routledge claims a valuable 5lbs and it’s encouraging to see the McConnell yard really starting to fire again in the past week.
