Wexford preview

Golden Spear attempts to atone for letting down favourite-backers at Galway when he goes to post for the Audrey McGrath Memorial (QR) Race at Wexford.
-
Tony Martin's gelding was strongly supported for the valuable Guinness Handicap at the Ballybrit Festival, only to find Clondaw Warrior too strong.
-
He meets nothing of that calibre in this line-up, and rising from a mile and a half to 1m7f is another plus point.
-
Martin is also responsible for Spacious Sky but the chief threat could come in the shape of useful jumper Gambling Girl, who was only a half a length adrift of Spacious Sky at Killarney and is better off on these terms.
-
McGuigan took a major step forward when rattling the crossbar at Killarney last week and tries to go one better in the Follow Wexford Racecourse On Facebook Maiden.
-
He boasts the same official rating as the Aidan O'Brien-trained Los Barbados, who hasn't been seen in competitive action since May but his third behind classy stable companion Giovanni Canaletto at Leopardstown last autumn is enough to recommend him strongly.
-
O'Brien's Ask Me Nicely was beaten a long way into third on her belated reappearance last week, but the outing will bring her forward and the blinkers go on for the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at 1.55.
-
Cocoon, yet another Ballydoyle inmate with leading claims on the card, tackles a bunch of in-form opponents in the Children's Day At Bettyville Handicap, not least Breenainthemycra, Henry's Girl, Monolight and One Cool Poet.
-
O'Brien will be hoping that Udogo gains a deserved breakthrough in the Wexford Handicap (Div 1) following seconds at Gowran and Killarney, with the consistent Crown Pleasure heading the shortlist for the second instalment.
-
Miss Me Now created a striking impression at Sligo and Willie Mullins has chosen the Enniscorthy Mares INH Flat Race for her next step up the ladder.
