Tonight's action: three runners who catch the eye at Killarney

Killarney: stages mixed card tonight
1 of 1

Following afternoon action at York,Stratford and Chepstow,there are three evening meetings at Fontwell, Wolverhampton and Killarney. The Irish track's dual-purpose card begins at 4.25 and here are three to look out for

4.25 Killarney

Connections will undoubtedly be disappointed Cardini has yet to shed his maiden tag, but with an official rating of 93, that elusive first win should not be far away.

The son of first season sire Magician was thought to be one of Ballydoyle's best two-year-olds before hitting the track, and arguably has the best form in the field courtesy of his fifth in the Chesham at Royal Ascot.

Despite the well-publicised recent demise in the stable's form, Cardini should have a good chance here in receipt of weight from maiden winners Zuenoon and Motashakel.

5.30 Killarney
Whirling Dervish

Willie Mullins holds a very strong hand in the Kingdom Gold Cup Handicap, but perhaps Whirling Dervish could spoil the party.

The Camelot colt represents the red-hot combination of Jessica Harrington and Colm O'Donoghue and benefits from a handy weight-for-age allowance from his elders.

Second and third place finishes behind the classy pair Bandua and Southern France respectively read extremely well after their subsequent exploits, and Whirling Dervishcouldprove himself to be a Group horse in a handicap this evening.

De Plotting Shed

Sent off at just 11-2 for the ultra competitive Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, De Plotting Shed still remains a maiden over fences but will surely not find a better opportunity than tonight.

De Plotting Shed has yet to replicate his smart hurdling form over the larger obstacles but with the Gordon Elliott yard now starting to fire, a bold showing will surely be expected.

He only reached the ninth fence on his seasonal return in the Galway Plate and if none the worse for the fall,should take plenty of beating in this company.
