Brian Healy looks ahead to Monday's UK and Irish horse racing meetings, and he has race-by-race selections for every fixture going to post.

Monday’s fixture list of horse racing action sees six meetings going to post, and there is afternoon action on the flat from Musselburgh on turf, and Wolverhampton on the all-weather; while jumps racing takes place on the card at Kempton.

In the evening, there is flat racing action from Windsor, while Killarney in Ireland race over the sticks. There is also a mixed flat/jumps racing card at Roscommon.

Wolverhampton (flat, aw) - 1.50 - 5.00pm (7 races)
Musselburgh (flat) - 2.00 - 5.45pm (8 races)
Kempton (jumps) - 2.10 - 4.50pm (6 races)
Killarney (jumps) - 5.05 - 8.40pm (8 races)
Windsor (flat) - 5.20 - 8.20pm (7 races)
Roscommon (mixed) - 5.30 - 8.30pm (7 races)



(3.25) YASIR (7/2, William Hill) isn’t the easiest to catch right, but the Dynaformer gelding has a good record here with seven wins and eight places to his name, and he could go well again back here having shaped with more encouragement on his latest run.

Sophie Leech’s charge was beaten just over one length behind Greenview Paradise latest where he was arguably unlucky not to win having met with trouble in running before finishing well but all too late.

He is only 1lb higher here, but he has won from higher in the past and as recently as last December; and granted a little more luck in running then he could go close here.

(4.30) NABBEYL (11/4, Bet365) has made the frame in four of his five starts to date, and the New Approach colt could be worth chancing to open his account here.

Roger Varian’s charge finished runner-up over one mile here back in December, denied only by a half-length behind Sucellus. He has stepped up in trip for his two runs this term, finishing third at Nottingham over ten furlongs, and then finding only the progressive Agent Basterfield too much to handle at Brighton latest.

Perhaps not helped by the steady pace to that race, he possibly didn’t act on the undulating seaside course given how he tended to hang into the rail; but he ought to be suited by a return to this track and surface, and it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him do better here in first-time blinkers.

1.50 - Celtic Artisan
2.20 - Tha’ir
2.55 - Rodnee Tee
3.25 - Yasir
4.00 - Dream Magic
4.30 - Nabbeyl
5.00 - Ember’s Glow


(2.30) BALWHAN (5/2, Paddy Power) found a chunk of improvement to beat a few of these last time out over course and distance to register his first career success, and Denis Hogan’s Bahamian Bounty gelding could repeat the dose here.

Despite being 1lb wrong at the weights, he appeared to win a shade readily over runner-up Angel Eyes, and a 6lbs rise in the weights might not prove enough of a burden to preventing a follow-up if he arrives in similar mood.

He ought to go close with a repeat of that last effort to confirm the form with those who were behind him in that contest.

(3.05) RIGHT ACTION (9/4, William Hill) won twice last term on turf, scoring at Doncaster in March and following up at Catterick before going off the boil; but Richard Fahey’s charge could follow a similar early-season path by following up on his reappearance win at Doncaster last month.

That win saw him claim the same race as he had done twelve months previously, and he ran out a relatively comfortable half-length winner over Saluti, keeping on well to land the win. He is only 3lbs higher in the weights for this latest outing which is far from punitative, and he can follow up having won from this mark last campaign.

He should remain competative then as a result, and every chance that he can follow up here.

2.00 - Cape Victory
2.30 - Bahlwan
3.05 - Right Action
3.35 - Theglasgowwarrior
4.10 - Colour Contrast
4.40 - Blue Whisper
5.10 - Gunnabedun
5.45 - Frame Rate


(3.15) MONTY’S AWARD (7/2, Bet365) found improved form over hurdles following a wind operation, returning from seven months off the track to find only one too good at Worcester; and he stepped up in that run next time out to win at the same venue, looking better for the longer trip.

Soft ground was probably against him on his final outing at Newcastle, but he bounced back on quicker ground on his reappearance from another four month break to finish fourth behind Earlofthecotswolds at Market Rasen last month and he could do better now his attentions are switched to chasing.

The Oscar gelding is every inch a chaser on looks, and he could prove a different proposition over the larger obstacles for Charlie Longsdon if finding improvement tackling fences now.

(4.20) None of this quintet are particularly reliable, but HERE I AM (5/2, William Hill) could be worth chancing having shaped much better than had been the case previously when finishing third at Fontwell last month, and the form of that contest is working out having since thrown up a couple of winners.

Darcie Grissell’s Presenting gelding had struggled previously, but a break seemed to do him good and he was beaten just five lengths behind Finnegan’s Garden. The runner-up and fifth horses home in that race have both won since, and he turns out here from the same mark as that latest outing.

He has won from higher in the past, and if able to reproduce or perhaps better the level of performance he posted last time then he could go close here.

2.10 - Tiffin Top
2.40 - Barbados Blue
3.15 - Monty’s Award
3.45 - Hawkerland
4.20 - Here I Am
4.50 - Tidal Watch


(6.40) FIVEAFTERMIDNIGHT (11/4, Paddy Power) is yet to win over hurdles, but Philip Rothwell’s charge has turned in some fair efforts in this discipline and this could be the day for the Getaway mare to break her duck.

Runner-up last term in three of her five starts over hurdles, she probably needed her return at Wexford in March where she pulled up. But she showed the benefit of the run when finishing fifth at Cork latest, beaten only around three lengths.

She races off the same mark here, but the longer trip might help elicit some improvement and she ought to go close if able to build on that latest outing.

(7.10) PEREGRINE RUN (Evens, Bet365) needs good ground to be seen at his best, and Peter Fahy’s charge won twice over fences last term which included a Listed contest at Wexford prior to finishing a creditable fourth of six runners behind Snow Falcon in the Chase at Down Royal.

The King’s Theatre gelding was subsequently absent until returning to action over hurdles at Thirsk where he finished just under three lengths’ runner-up behind Scarpeta, and he was in the process of posting a big effort when falling three out in the Topham Chase when last seen out.

A winner of three of his five starts at this venue, he can bounce back from that mishap returned to better ground, and every chance he can get back on the scoresheet here in receipt of 8lbs from recent Grade Two scorer, Jett, who perhaps isn’t the most straightforward.

5.05 - Doctor Duffy
5.40 - Campeador
6.10 - Waterville Dancer
6.40 - Fiveaftermidnight
7.10 - Peregrine Run
7.40 - Walk To Freedom
8.10 - It Came To Pass
8.40 - Baboin


(5.50) ILLUSIONIST (Evens, William Hill) looked potentially useful when making a pleasing debut at Lingfield earlier in the month, finding only Strong Power too strong by just over one length.

Archie Watson’s Hot Streak colt probably needed that first run as she looked green under pressure; but she showed enough to suggest she’d be winning before too long, and sure to improve for the experience she could prove a tough nut to crack at the second attempt.

She ought to have learnt plenty from that first run, and the form of that run is arguably stronger than any other on offer; and she can build on the performance to go one better here.

(6.50) Mitchum Swagger and OH THIS IS US (9/4, Bet365) reoppose having finished fourth and sixth of seven runners respectively behind Beat The Bank in the recent Bet365 Mile; but Richard Hannon’s charge is taken to come out on top here.

The Acclamation horse finished runner-up in this contest twelve months ago, and he arrives here on the back of some solid efforts which include winning two of his last four outings on the all-weather. He was however a dual-winner on turf last campaign, and he made the frame on multiple occasions at a higher level than this.

He gets 3lbs from Mitchum Swagger this time around, and he can make the most of that concession to get back to winning ways.

5.20 - Shagalla
5.50 - Illusionist
6.20 - Heritage
6.50 - Oh This Is Us
7.20 - Mandocello
7.50 - Song Without End
8.20 - Narjes


(7.00) ROCK ON SEAMIE (5/1, William Hill) found some improvement back on the level when scoring by a neck over Acari at Tipperary last month, and Rob Hackett’s charge lost little caste in defeat next time when quickly turned out two days later under a penalty.

There, the Lilbourne Lad gelding was beaten only one length into third behind Cork Harbour, perhaps anchored by the weight in the soft ground. Nevertheless, he had more than two lengths to spare back to the remainder, and having had a short breather he ought to remain competitive here.

He has better ground to contend with here, but if he can cope with the quicker conditions then it isn’t hard to make a case for him, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he were to get back on the scoresheet in this contest.

(8.00) WARLIKE INTENT (2/1, Bet365) showed some ability in bumpers, winning on his first try away from the point-to-point sphere and then returning from four months off to finish third behind Kelp Forest at Limerick.

Gordon Elliott’s Stowaway gelding makes his hurdles debut here on the back of 14 months off the track, but he is sure to have been well schooled ahead of this assignment, and it could be significant that connections have persevered with the seven-year old.

Davy Russell is the man in the saddle, and in a very winnable first foray over hurdles he ought to go close.

5.30 - Georgeville
6.00 - Johnnny Drama
6.30 - Hazel Bay
7.00 - Rock On Seamie
7.30 - Just A Normal Day
8.00 - Warlike Intent
8.30 - Coeur Serein
