15:35 Punchestown

Punchestown -



Rose Milan – 3.35 Punchestown – 3 Mile Handicap Hurdle – 20/1 Bet365 & Boyles – 5 Places BOG – 1 Point Each Way. (Paddy Power & BetVictor also 20/1 but not BOG).

Roped In, Salamino, and Kingston Kid all ran into places last time out and being unexposed are entitled to be there or thereabouts once more.

They are well found in the market, but the one I like at a juicy price of 20/1 is Rose Milan. She ran 5 times in good 3 mile Point to Points, winning once and placing 4 times.

On her debut under rules, she won a 3 mile Hunter chase, postmarking 112, before her shrewd connections sent her hurdling to obtain a separate mark in that sphere.

Those runs were generally over shorter, and Rose acquitted herself well running to a high of 97.

On her handicap debut, she was unsurprisingly stepped up to a more suitable 3 miles and the tongue tie and cheekpieces miraculously were re-applied which she wore when easily winning her hunter chase, but which had been missing for all her hurdles starts.

Unfortunately, the plan went astray as she fell, and it took her two runs to regain her confidence.

She was brought back to an inadequate trip of 2 miles where she out-performed herself, finishing a close 5th of 15 (off 97), and her latest run, over 2m 5F stayed on late to finish a never nearer 7th of 14, only going down by 7 lengths.

There is no doubt she is running into form, particularly considering these last two starts were without the tongue tie or cheekpieces.

Today looks like the day, as Rose Milan moves back up to 3 miles, the tongue tie and cheekpieces go on. The icing on the cake is the booking of the crack conditional jockey, Jack Foley, who is undoubtedly the best claimer jockey in Ireland, and his 5lb allowance is a gift!

That nets his mark down to 90 today, and with the ground also right for her, I  can’t believe she sits in the market at 20/1 with Bet365 and Boyles, who offer BOG and 5 places (also 20/1 with Paddy Power & BetVictor- not BOG).

I recommend 1 point each way at 20/1, she is still value at 10/1.
