Flying Five Stakes betting tips – Glass Slippers gets vote

A stellar Sunday card for day 2 of Irish Champions Weekend from The Curragh includes the 5f Group 1 Flying Five Stakes (15:10). Glass Slippers comes into this fresh and appeals most.

Trained in the Hambleton hills of Yorkshire by Kevin Ryan, this four-year-old filly is one of several British raiders heading to the Emerald Isle for a hotly competitive renewal.

Glass Slippers took her form to a new level last autumn when winning a Group 3 at Longchamp and then returning there on Arc weekend. The way she sluiced through very soft ground for a three-length victory was hugely imprssive in the Prix de l’Abbaye.

British champion sprinter elect Battaash has since reversed that French form with her. However, Glass Slippers needed runs last season before improving and she was entitled to need her reappearance after 245 days off.

That came at Royal Ascot when fifth in the King’s Stand Stakes. The re-opposing Liberty Beach was 3 1/2 lengths in front of Glass Slippers that day, but she now meets that rival on 5lb better terms.

She has since reversed form in the Group 2 King George Qatar Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. Glass Slippers got much closer to Battaash here when beaten just over two lengths.

It looks significant that connections skipped the Nunthorpe at the Ebor Festival for a crack at the Flying Five Stakes. Many of Glass Slippers’ fellow British raiders ran at York.

Her rating of 113 is the joint-highest in the Flying Five Stakes this year too. As she excelled last autumn, Glass Slippers get our vote in a race where several have chances.

Blandford Stakes betting tips – Lots to like about Lemista

In the 1m 2f Group 2 Blandford Stakes for fillies and mares earlier on the card (14:35), Lemista looks a solid each-way bet. Trained by Ger Lyons, this daughter of Raven’s Pass has won her last four.

Lemista, like Glass Slippers, is pretty versatile as regards ground. She scored on her final start as a juvenile bolting up by four lengths in a Gowran Park maiden.

When stepped up into Group 3 company on reappearance, Lemista landed the Park Express Stakes at Naas. She has since added two more black type victories over nine furlongs.

In the first of those, a Listed affair back at Gowran, she was ridden clear in the final furlong and stayed on really well.

As Lemista then took the Kilboy Estate in this grade and venue, she proved that a sounder surface was no problem. One Voice, who is favourite for the Blandford Stakes, was only an unlucky fifth that day.

That rival has gone on to place at Group 1 level twice. However, One Voice has had two tough races at Glorious Goodwood in the Nassau and the Yorkshire Oaks behind Love.

All the while, Lyons looks to have laid Lemista out for this. She goes well after a break, so makes for a value alternative now tackling 1m 2f which promises to suit for the first time.

Although the likes of Cayenne Pepper and Magic Wand also have claims, they aren’t unexposed at the trip. That all adds up to Lemista having at least a say in the finish.

Moyglare Stud Stakes betting tips – Teresa Mendoza worth another go

Heavy ground might have blunted Teresa Mendoza when last in action, so she is another solid each-way bet for the 7f Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes (15:40).

Trained by Ken Condon, who is having a fine season with his juveniles, the daughter of Territories is a course winner.

Her maiden victory only needed a hands and heels ride from Shane Foley to secure. Teresa Mendoza won on yielding ground, but then had bottomless conditions for the Group 3 Round Tower.

It was only close home where New Treasure got up for a half-length victory. Now up in trip on much better going and back against her own sex, Teresa Mendoza should go well.

Billy Lee now takes the ride on her too. In a race where favourite Pretty Gorgeous is ods-on, Teresa Mendoza can hit the frame at least.

Shale looks the pick of the Coolmore runners for Donnacha O’Brien with father Aidan’s Divinely, Mother Earth and Snowfall exposed.

The Group 1 Vincent O’Brien National Stakes for colts is very much a race to watch, meanwhile. British raider Master of The Seas tackles Lucky Vega and Battleground in the Emerald Isle with cases made for all three market principals.
