1:00 Clonmel – ATLANTIC FAIRY each way @ 11/1 or bigger on the Win and Place market on the exchanges.
There is a short price favourite in this race, Ard Abhainn, which earned a rating of 79 in its only point-to-point but it has considerably progressed since.
What is interesting is that second favourite Fort Worth Texas (best P2P rating 85) on its fourth point to point race ran against Atlantic Fairy who was making its point to point debut. Off level weights Atlantic Fairy led for most of the race going easily but was headed at the last dropping back momentarily to third with Fort Worth Texas taking up the running. Atlantic Fairy ran on strongly finishing fastest only to be beaten by a neck.
Today Atlantic Fairy receives 8lb from Fort Worth Texas who has shown improved form subsequently. Atlantic Fairy at 15.00 on the exchange win market and 3.25 on the place market compared with Fort Worth Texas trading at less than 5/1 on the exchanges looks a decent each way bet if Henry De Bromhead has her fit first time up and in this respect I am encouraged by the fact that in her point to point she was clearly ready on her debut.
All things considered the price takes into account all off the factors and appeals as a bet.
