Screaming Petrus

J: Rossa Ryan
T: David Loughnane
Age: 4
Weight: 9-8
OR: 74
Days: 14

The first race on ITV this weekend is the Class 5 Handicap over 1m4f and at the prices Screaming Petrus for David Loughnane could have a big chance.

A very smart three year old on the all weather he was seen three times at the back end of last year, finishing third over 9.5f at Wolves on debut and then backed that over the same C&D when a close second.

He managed to get off the mark on his third and final run in December, upped to 12f at Wolves and revelling in the extra distance.

Making his seasonal/turf debut this season at Ascot he ran no sort of race in what was his first handicap experience aswell, but down 2lb to a mark of 74 for this event, he should be go close.

Will come on for the run.

York - May 20 2022
York 14:30
Ross Coakley


J: Ross Coakley
T: Ed Walker
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
OR: 96
Days: 22

In the big race of the day at York which sees the Group Three Bronte Cup Fillies' Stakes, we are having a go at one of the outsiders in this race with Glenartney for Ed Walker making big appeal at around 13/2.

This horse holds some serious form at York and that is the angle I’m taking in the race, if you look at her two efforts on the knavesmire she finished a good fifth in the Group Three Musidora behind the likes of Group One winners Snowfall and Teona and then up to 1m4f at the track in August was a 2 length third behind Forbearance and Domino Darling in a Listed event.

Having had a run this season already in a good Listed event at Goodwood it would have put her spot on for this and from the way she races it looks as though the step up in trip will suit.

A bit of a punt at a price but we are intrigued by that angle into the race.

Curragh - May 20 2022
Curragh 15:30
Shane B Kelly


J: Shane B Kelly
T: J P Murtagh
Age: 4
Weight: 9-1
OR: 87
Days: 35

In the final event of the afternoon at the Curragh we have a selection in is the 1m2f Premier Handicap and it sees the Johnny Murtagh trained Mashoor looking to go close.

The four year old son of Kingman has been fairly respectable in the majority of his races, having been with Sir Michael Stoute before this season and last year he got off the mark on seasonal debut at Nottingham.

He was then second in a Novice Stakes at Chelmsford over a mile and rounded off last term stepping up to 10f and running to a decent level in handicap company.

Making his debut for Murtagh at Cork this season he was a strong fourth of 17 in a big fielded handicap off a mark of 86.

Now only 1lb higher, he holds every chance.
