CORK FLAT ACTION: It’s the start of a fantastic Easter weekend of Irish racing action and SHAMROCK’s Saturday nap runs at Cork.

As a racing fan it doesn’t get much better than this. Make sure you have fresh batteries in your TV remote this afternoon.

Best of luck to Aidan O’Brien and his runners at the Dubai World Cup meeting today at Meydan.

St Nicholas Abbey is a consistennt performer who looks the pick of Aidan’s chances. He goes in the Dubai Sheema Classic at 5.20. He hasn’t been seen since his third to Little Mike in the Breeders’ Cup Turf having previously got bogged down in the Paris mud at Longchamp in the Arc.

Safer betting propositions may come closer to home today at Cork who stage their first flat card of the season on testing ground.

Whatever the fate of the O’Brien runners in Meydan he has strong chances in the final race at Cork with Fortify who has two solid placed efforts next to his name from last season in bottomless ground and should be well suited by the step-up in trip here.

NAP: Fortify (5.45 Cork)
