Angel In The Sky

Angel In The Sky did well to keep on as well as she did to finish third in Division 1 of the 12-furlong handicap at Tipperary last Wednesday. Smartly away from her outside draw, she moved forward nicely for Joe Doyle and led the field up past the winning post first time. She travelled well in front, heading up a well-stretched-out field. They congregated around her as they raced around the home turn but, moving over towards the stands side in the home straight, she found plenty for pressure. She was passed by Wild Shot and Custers Mistake, who both raced in rear early on, but she was beaten a total of less than three lengths, and she finished nicely clear of the fourth horse Alvaro.

This was Luke Comer’s filly’s second run back after a break of 12 months, her second run in cheekpieces, and she did well to keep on as well as she did behind two horses who were held up, having led from flagfall. The first three finished nicely clear, and the winning time was 0.84secs faster than the time of the second division of this race. The handicapper raised her by just 1lb for this to a mark of 50, which is still 4lb lower than her all-weather mark. She has raced just seven times in her life, and just three times on turf, so she retains plenty of potential to progress. She is entered in a 12-furlong handicap at Fairyhouse on Sunday, and she will be of interest if she takes her chance in that.
