Aidan O'Brien looks set for a field day at Tipperary this afternoon.

The Ballydoyle trainer has runners in six of the seven races but the four I like are Best Before Dawn (3.30), Kellys Pearl (4.00), Crossfarnogue (5.00), Erramore (5.30).

Erramore, in the concluding novice hurdle, looks the banker. She has won both her races over timber, including a course and distance victory, and is confidently expected to complete the treble.

With three meetings taking place in England, punters have plenty of choice.

At Ayr, David Barron appears to have found a winning opportunity for his good sprinter For The Present in the Sunday Mail Handicap.

Two years ago the six-year-old landed the valuable six-furlong Stewards' Cup at Goodwood but since then he has had a relatively quiet time.

He came back to form with a victory over six furlongs at Redcar last month when he beat Green Barries three quarters of a length.

The runner-up has since scored twice, while For The Present found the five furlongs too sharp when unplaced behind stable companion Coastal Bluff at York recently.

Back to his best trip, For The Present (3.20) looks worthy of star rating this afternoon.

Luca Cumani's sole Newmarket raider Elmi Elmak (4.20) looks all set for the number one spot in the Tam O'Shanter Gallop Maiden Stakes.

He showed much promise on his debut at Kempton last month when beaten two lengths by Gold Spats in a 15-runner maiden and the extra furlong here should suit him.

At Yarmouth, Blue Duster is the star of the show. David Loder's unbeaten filly ended her two-year-old career with a win in the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes.

Her seasonable debut has been delayed but she has been working really well at home and should prove too good for her rivals in the Tunstall Fillies Stakes.

Melt The Clouds (3.30) found Go Britannia five lengths too good for him at Warwick last time out but appears to have an easier task in the Pleasure Beach Maiden Stakes.

Mark Johnston's consistent Double Blue (4.30) should be capable of giving his rivals the weight and a beating in the Broadland 102 Rated Handicap.
