[Free Tips For Sunday] Downpatrick Horse Racing Tips

The pick of Sunday’s Irish horse racing comes from Downpatrick, which stages its 2020 Randox Ulster National Day. The highlight on the card is the eponymous Randox Ulster National Handicap Chase, while the WKD Rated Hurdle is another interesting race on a decent supporting card.

Check out our trends, analysis, and free tips for Randox Ulster National Day at Downpatrick.

WKD Rated Hurdle Analysis

14:10 at Downpatrick Racecourse on 22nd March

The 2020 WKD Rated Hurdle takes place over 2 miles 2 furlongs and 165 yards and it will be interesting to see if the money comes again for recent Leopardstown handicap winner Wajaaha. Trainer Charles Byrnes knows how to land a gamble but his 5-year-old faces a much tougher task here.

The Very Man is much preferred, having achieved his rating when winning a maiden hurdle. This is, again, tougher but Gordon Elliott’s 6-year-old appeared to relish the step-up from two miles that day and there should be plenty more to come.

Randox Ulster National Handicap Chase Analysis

15:10 at Downpatrick Racecourse on 22nd March

The 2020 Randox Ulster National Handicap Chase takes place on soft-heavy ground over 3 miles 4 furlongs and 120 yards, so it’s probably a good idea to looks for horses that handle the underfoot conditions and have an abundance of stamina.

Ifyoucatchmeknow proved both by winning the Boylesports Grand National Trial Handicap Chase over at Punchestown last time. The problem he only got up in the dying strides that day with just 9-9 on his back, and the handicapper has made his life much more difficult today.

Gordon Elliott saddles six runners in a bid to win the race for the third time in six years and Cheb De Kerviniou will be popular after putting together several consistent runs of late. However, Elliott has a couple of potentially better handicapped horses if they put their best foot forward.

Poormans Hill is three from three at Downpatrick, including winning the 2018 edition of this race on soft ground as the 11/4 (3.75) favourite. He returns off a 6lb higher mark this year, though that is offset by his jockey’s 7lb claim. The problem is Poormans Hill returns after 284 days off the track and it’s hard to know what form he’ll be in.

General Principle is an even better handicapped horse for Gordon Elliott, as he won the 2018 Grand National off an 8lb higher mark, whilst his jockey claims another 5lb off his back. He was only fourth behind Ifyoucatchmenow last time but has a 16lb pull in the weights for 18-lengths. Connections also possibly need him to win this to go up enough in the weights to get a run in the Irish Grand National, so he has the look of a solid each-way bet.

I think last year’s winner Amaulino is the runner that looks the most overpriced. That’s probably because he’s shown little of late over hurdles, and he returns off an 8lb higher mark this year. But that is offset by his jockey’s 7lb claim and his trainer looks to have laid him out for a defence of his title.
