Tips for Day 3 from Ruby Walsh

Tips Rice Power

13.30 – Tracking of Turners Novices: the mighty potter

“Mighty Potter will probably win but I appreciate he’s really going to give him a race. It’s going to be a good race between the two.”

14.50 – Ryanair Tracking: Bulging

“This race is about Bulging, it’s that simple.”

15.30 – Paddy Power Stayers Barrier: teaupoo

“For me, rain makes this Teahupoo. This is a huge day for Davy Russell on his comeback and these are his best chances to win with Might Potter at 1:30pm and Teahupoo.

“In the rain he (Teahupoo) is a better horse on soft ground and the more it rains the better his chances.

“Most of the year I’ve been giving Home By The Lee a shot, but if it doesn’t dry out significantly, I’m in favor of Teahupoo.”

16.10 – Magnifying Plate: Frero Banbou

“Haut En Couleurs is too weak a finisher for me to pick in this race.

“So the Scottish one is the obvious one, but now that it’s all raining, I’ll go with Frero Banbou. His last few runs have been over 2 metres, but getting up to 2 and a half meters gives him a big shot.”

16.50 – Mare Novice Barrier: Ring Du Taber

“In no way Lucia at 13/8. I know I tip Much Joy, but it was 18/1 when I was doing this, now it’s at 6 (6/1).

“I am going Ring Du Taber with the pouring rain.”

17.30 – Kim Muir Handicap Tracking: Stumptown

“Gary O’Brien was so sweet Stumptown Even before we go to Sandown.

“I watched him there; The jump was incredible. He has only risen 10 lbs and I will take his side.
