Ruby Walsh’s tips for Day 2

tips about Paddy power

1:30 p.m. – Ballymore Novices Hurdle (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Impair Et Passe

“I am in Impairment Et Passe – he was very good at the first hurdle at Naas before Christmas, he was good at the Moscow Flyer where he fell two miles behind.


1. Impairment Et Passe – 5/2

2. Gaelic Warrior – 9/2

3. Champ Kiely – 13/2

2:10pm – Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Gerri Colombe

“I am in Gerry Colombe.

“The race is set up for him – The real wacker will go on like I said, that’s how it will go Galia Des Liteauxbut he is Gerry Colombe solid sweater.

“He looks like a horse screaming three miles and I think he’s the real favorite.”

2:50 p.m. – Coral Cup Hurdle (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Captain Conby both ways

“I thought I pulled one out of the fire going through these this morning and I was in Captain Conby as well as.

“I went through and Captain Conby in the last run behind SanSalvador. Icare Allen ran me in Newbury and too bad Scaramanga want fast ground. Tax For Max is hard to imagine.”

3:30pm – Champion Chase (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Edwardstone

“It’s not for me to compete against a Willie Mullins horse, but I do it and I compete against it energuma and the more rain falls, the greater his chance [Edwardstone] Has.

Edwardstone looks like he’s capable of handling soft ground. Of the two since that time 12 months ago, Edwardstone seems to be the one who improved or maybe he just kept his form and energuma went back.”

4:10pm – Cross Country Chase (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: Delta work. Franco De Port also in both directions

“[Keith Donoghue booked on Delta Work] If you think about it – it’s not such a big shock.

“The success he’s had tiger roll [previously] and I think delta work is the one, especially with the rain that has fallen. Last year that really strengthened him [Delta Work’s] Coincidence was really soft ground.

“He [Delta Work] won for the first time last year but he has to be a better horse and with those runs under his belt I think he will be hard to beat again.

Franco dePort is at a big prize, will continue at 8/1, he’s a single prize anyway delta work will win.”

5:30pm – Champion Bumper (Ruby Walsh)

Tip: fact about the file

“Soil, age, stamina and things like that all played into this decision for Patrick Mullins archive fact.

A dream to share is your favorite, he suggested archive fact in Leopardstown. It was a slow race but I think it will be a very different competition.

“I think the stayers will win this race against the fast horses and I can see archive fact change that with A dream to share.

“Patrick Mullins may have gotten it right and I would be there archive fact.”
