The Evening Punt: Tom Collins' free horse racing tips on Friday
All-weather specialist who is in the form of her life, finishing a narrow second over this course and distance twice before fairly hacking up when dropped to the minimum trip at Newcastle when last seen. She is up 5lb for that effort but makes a quick reappearance, should be suited by the way this race will pan out and has the plum draw in stall one. Recent RPRs suggest her mark of 67 isn't beyond her by any means and she could get first jump on main market rival Griggy.
Crest Of A Wave(8.30 Dundalk)
Morning prices of around 18-1 are far too big for Charles O'Brien's mare, who returns from a 77-day break and is fitted with a first-time hood in the Dundalk finale. Those factors, as well as the fact she has plummeted in the handicap since finishing a career-best second in this race last year, make her an interesting each-way punt in a race where the majority of the fancied rivals are drawn out in the car park. She is able to compete off 12lb lower than 12 months ago, when she almost certainly would have broken her duck but for finding a load of trouble inside the final three furlongs.
