The Messenger Sunday Horse Racing Preview

 The Messenger has bets on two races on Sunday and they are at Dundalk and Fontwell.

Dundalk 5:20

Moone Dancer is worth a small interest here. She ran well in two bumpers before reverting to the flat and despite being awkward from the stalls she has run some encouraging races. The best of these was when last of 6 at Leopardstown on her penultimate start, when she was only beaten around 4 lengths. She finished close up with Crocodile Shoes, Sea The Awesome and A Shin Kildare and on a line through that form, she could be well treated here off 69.

The each way terms are not appealing here with 14 runners and 3 places being paid, so a small interest at 14/1 in the win market is recommended.

Advised Bet:

0.5 points win Moone Dancer at 14/1 with Bet365, Coral and Betfair

Fontwell 5:20

Jezzebelle looks the most likely winner her after a very good debut at this venue last month. In that bumper she looked like winning for a long way, but was worried out of it in the closing stages by Deise Diamond. The latter had some solid Irish bumper form and this run looks the best form on offer.

However we might be a little more adventurous here and look at the without the favourite market. This is really because the form of he others in the race looks very average. Vulgans Watch was 6th on her debut in a Stratford bumper and that looks very ordinary form. Bella Girino has looked a difficult ride and she was hanging badly for most of the straight at Uttoxeter. This could easily be replicated here on this difficult climb to the line. Sbarazzina looked moderate as well on her debut and Wine Women and Song will not need to be anything out of the ordinary to go well here. She is quite nicely bred out of a winning flat mare and is a half sister to the stable's Welcometothejungle. Harry Fry will be cranking things up a gear now and has a 32% strike rate at this venue. She looks worth an interest at 7/2 without the favourite.

Advised Bet:

1 point win Wine Women and Song at 7/2 (w/o Jezzebelle) with Betfair Sports
