Sunday horse racing tips: Angus McNae's bets at the Curragh

A couple of winners in my Sunday tipping column last week and hopefully more to come this weekend where the action at the Curragh takes centre stage on Racing TV. I have managed to find four selections, including one who makes plenty of appeal in the 5.25pm.

3.15 Curragh: Insinuendo

This filly won here at the Curragh two starts ago and looks set to go and score again.

She won that Group Three contest in good style, and in a fast time, and this track clearly suits her, given that two of her four career wins have been here.

She was unsuited by a steady gallop when beaten last time out over ten furlongs but, back down in trip and with a better gallop likely, she looks set to regain winning ways.

3.50 Curragh: Tahiyra

This classy filly stands out in this field and the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas is hers for the taking.

She pulled clear of the rest of the field when second to Mawj in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas at Newmarket last time out, and the time of that race was outstanding.

She was a brilliant two-year-old and if she had been a little closer to the pace at Newmarket, she may well have won.

This does not look to be an outstanding renewal of the Irish 1,000 Guineas, and she should win with ease.

4.25 Curragh: Drumroll

This Deep Impact colt is improving with racing and he was seen to good effect when chasing home stable companion Paddington last time out.

Aidan O'Brien has a good record in this race and it is interesting that he relies solely on this colt to enhance that record.

The step up in trip to ten furlongs looks sure to suit, based upon the stamina on the dams side of his pedigree, and he can take another step forward here.

5.25 Curragh: The Very Man

Jessica Harrington has her team in great form, and she can win this race with this useful handicap hurdler.

He switches to the Flat here, which should be no problem given he has already won a maiden in this sphere.

He is rated 135 over hurdles, which makes his flat rating of 88 look generous, and arrives here in good form after finishing second in a competitive handicap hurdle at Punchestown in April.

This handicap should be within his grasp, and he makes a lot of appeal.
