Tarziyna will be tough nut to crack in Sligo finale
Course and distance winner Truthwillsetufree can win for trainer Dermot Weld
John Oxx: his Tarziyna is fancied to win at Sligo tonight.
The Aga Khan-owned filly ran into a decent sort in System Overload at the Curragh nine days ago, which was a step up on her Cork debut. A similar step-up now should make Tarziyna tough to beat in the 10-furlong maiden that includes the newcomer Madakheel.
That maiden was won a couple of years ago by Truthwillsetufree and the same course and distance can provide the Dermot Weld mare with a second career victory in the five-runner conditions event.
Weld’s Flic Flac tops the weights in the fillies handicap and is returning from a disappointing effort in April at Cork on testing ground. Better going now, and a repeat of her Leopardstown second in March, should make her a leading contender.
Pixie Spirit is 7lb higher for winning at Limerick over a fortnight ago but can follow up today.
