June 27 Racing Tips: Isle Of Lismore looking for another win at Windsor

Planet Sport tipsters cast their eyes over day two of the Irish Derby weekend at the Curragh, plus meetings at Windsor and Uttoxeter on Sunday, June 27.

Shake off the Sunday blues with some winners from our hot selections below.

2.50 Windsor - Isle Of Lismore

Isle Of Lismore looks a sprinter on the up and can confirm that impression in the Read Hollie Doyle's Column On attheraces.com Handicap.

Winner of one of his five juvenile starts, a winter gelding operation appears to have had the desired effect as Isle Of Lismore is two from three so far this term.

Beaten by the reopposing Four Adaay on his seasonal return, Isle Of Lismore has not looked back since, winning a moderate event at Catterick before significantly stepping up to take a much better contest at Newmarket.

He led home a one-two-three for trainer Robert Cowell that day, coming home a length and three-quarters clear and while a 7lb rise is significant, this son of Zebedee had the potential to chart a little higher still.

3.25 Windsor - Chai Yo Power

Chai Yo Power can finally shed his maiden tag in the Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap.

Beaten in four starts to date, including when sent off favourite at Chepstow last time, Chai Yo Power is clearly one of Sir Michael Stoute's lesser lights.

His recent defeat on handicap debut at Chepstow offers some encouragement though as he was never closer than at the finish, and a small event like this should be within his compass.

Other potential winners at Windsor include: 1.50 Join Forces, 2.20 Micks Dream, 4.00 Mobashr, 4.30 Bellazada, 5.05 Broad Appeal.

3.40 Curragh - Thundering Nights

It day two of Irish Derby weekend at the Curragh, where Thundering Nights can land the Alwasmiyah Pretty Polly Stakes.

Joseph O'Brien's charge was last seen at Belmont Park earlier this month, where she just failed to catch top-class American runner Mean Mary by a nose in a competitive Grade Two heat on the turf.

Previously beaten half a length by Broome, Thundering Nights has hit a new level of form this term and can gain her just reward here.

Other strong chances at the Curragh include: 1.30 I Am Magic, 2.00 Cheerupsleepyjean, 2.30 Bellagio Man, 3.05 Grammata, 4.10 Amhran Na Bhfiann, 4.45 Brogue, 5.20 Diamil.

1.20 Uttoxeter - Ambassador

Ambassador has been in the first two in each of his last four starts and can be relied upon to put in another prominent showing in the bet365 Novices' Hurdle.

Having won at Hereford in March, he has finished second three times since, just being edged out by a head on the most recent occasion.

3.00 Uttoxeter - Starsky

Starsky contests the bet365 Handicap Hurdle after making a successful debut for the Skeltons at Warwick last month.

Initially trained by Paul Nicholls, the seven-year-old had a short spell point to pointing at the backend of last year before joining Stuart Kittow, for whom he had just one unplaced outing.

Transferred to the care of Skelton subsequently, Starsky impressed in his Warwick win in what was an average amateur riders' handicap hurdle, and looks the type this team excels with.

3.35 Uttoxeter - Lock's Corner

Lock's Corner can take Listed honours in Uttoxeter's bet365 Summer Cup.

One of better events in the summer jumps campaign, this three-mile-two-furlong heat represents a huge leap up in trip for Jonjo O'Neill's charge having last competed over two miles and a furlong at Stratford last month.

He won comfortably enough in what was a decent, if slightly trappy affair, marking his first start since a disappointing effort in an ultra-competitive heat at Leopardstown over Christmas, when he was sent off favourite but cut little ice before being pulled up.

Lock's Corner had previously triumphed three times over an extended two and a half miles, as well as showing up well over three miles in a handicap hurdle at Cheltenham, so Uttoxeter's increased trip is likely not beyond him.

Good ground should also suit and Lock's Corner's current mark of 144 may not yet be beyond him.

Other Uttoxeter selections include: 1.55 Hats Off To Larry, 2.25 Be Thankful, 4.05 Garbanzo, 4.40 Goa Lil, 5.15 Mister Sweets
