We have one meeting in Ireland on Tuesday, so we go to the west of Ireland and Ballinrobe for our four tips this evening.

Shield 11/4 with Boylesports.com can fight off his rivals in the open maiden over 1 mile 6 furlongs. The beautifully bred son of Dylan Thomas won a bumper at Leopardstown, and was then taught good enough to go to Cheltenham to contest the bumper. He was not up to that level and this is his first start on the flat. Joseph O Brien takes the ride and should be well able to win a maiden against this type of opposition. Although it is worrying that the trainer brings him to Ballinrobe , as he seems to bring the ones that struggle to win maidens to this western venue. 1 point win.
5.35 Ballinrobe -
Zemario 5/1 with Boylesports.com can this weak handicap for trainer Joseph Murphy and jockey Shane Foley. His last couple of runs is the best form on offer, and should be the one they all have to beat. 1 point win.
6.05 Ballinrobe -
Granny on Fire 10/3 with Boylesports.com can bounce back to form after a disappointing effort in Tramore last time. The combination of soft ground and longer trip put paid to her chances down there and she can make amends here. She won a handicap the race before that over the course and distance by 9 lengths. The main factor with her is the ground as long as its goodish ground she should take all the beating under top apprentice Shane Grey. 1 point win.

Woodsophiesmile 2/1 with Boylesports.com can strike here for the red hot Tony Martin stable. The acclamation filly got of the mark at the Galway festival last time, and the form received a boost with Janna’s Jingle who finished 5th in that race winning a nice handicap in Windsor last Saturday. There looks to be plenty of pace on which is sure to suit and she can come home with a late run to take the spoils. 1 point win.
