Lunar Display can make winning debut on the flat


After four days of double encounters, the Curragh are the sole standard bearers today and while it is a reasonable encounter there aren’t too many attractive betting opportunities. Early breeds are full of newcomers who are likely types and the level of those in good shape doesn’t set the bar too high.

Much later on the map, in the Horseware Student Derby, Lunar Display can make a winning debut on the Flat. Winner of a bumper at Leopardstown and twice over hurdles, the most recent of which was just two days old at Wexford, Joseph O’Brien’s mare is doing well with the proving ground, should have no problem with the journey of a kilometer and a half, and can prove a cut above its rivals.

Neverushacon was once a considerably superior genre on obstacles and has two flat wins to add to its seven on obstacles. He is respected but is now ten years old, has not raced for six months and will need to be well advanced to compete with his rival in form and progress.

Micro Manage will likely be a top fantasy for Paddy Power’s amateur rider derby, but Raise You is an interesting rival and worth a shot. While to date the gelding has not been tried beyond ten stages, her dam, Hikari, has won her young daughter over 11 and a half stages and the selection is a half-brother to a Golden mare. Horn, Lady G, who lost her maiden status. on today’s trip.

John Gleeson, whose father, Brian, raised Raise You’s dam, has made a good start to his jockey career and he seems to be a good fit for this gelding. Micro Manage might be hard to beat, but Raise You is officially 1 pound superior and with Gleeson’s seven-pound claim in the equation, he’s 8 pounds over this rival. If the trip remains, it will go very close.
