Review tipperary 16th Aug
Beau Recall opened her account at the second time of asking when claiming the decent prize on offer in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Claiming Maiden at Tipperary.
The 4-1 chance came into this on the back of a promising debut at Fairyhouse in June and looks to have done well in the interim, staying on strongly to master hot-favourite Member State.
Member State appeared to have things under control when building up a substantial lead but he was a spent force in the closing stages and had no answer when challenged inside the final furlong, eventually losing out by a length and a quarter.
Dermot Weld's Almanaara (4-7 fav) had too many guns for his rivals in the Book Online At TipperaryRaces.ie Maiden, running out a convincing four length victor.
The son of Shamardal only narrowly missed out at Naas last time and clearly benefited for the return to this longer trip, taking a prominent position from the outset before quickening up well once sent for home by Pat Smullen.
The Follow @TipperaryRaces on Twitter Handicap looked a much more competitive contest on paper but things didn't turn out that way as Lake George (5-1) had three lengths in hand over Clear Focus at the finish.
Hint Of Frost (7-2) claimed first prize in the Fundraising Events At Tipperary Races Handicap but only after favourite Lord Justice had unseated Donnacha O'Brien at the start.
This handed Jessica Harrington's charge a guilt-edged opportunity and he made no mistake, comfortably accounting for Gibson Park by a length and a half.
There was a big shock in the Follow TipperaryRaces On Facebook Handicap as Not Just Any Girl obliged at odds of 50-1.
The five-year-old was beginning to look exposed but left behind some modest recent displays to beat Liberality by half a length.
When the action switched to the jumpers, Linger (12-1) landed the Tipperary Racecourse Centenary Year 3-Y-O Maiden Hurdle by two and a half lengths.
