E/W Lucky 15 horse racing tips for the action at Naas on Sunday

Irish E/W Lucky 15 Racing Tips
Gigginstown field four runners and I’ve been singing the praises of Empire of Dirt all year, a horse who should have won when coming down two out last time out. He may find this contest more competitive and ideally wants further that the 2m 4f here so is swerved in favour of CHAMPAGNE JAMES (9/1 Ladbrokes) who will relish the trip. He has disappointed to date failing to win over fences, but an encouraging handicap debut at Leopardstown following some decent placed efforts against Novice company should have him bang in the mix off a mark of 126.
Max Dynamite looks to be the pick of the Willie Mullins runners here but was disappointing behind the smart Kitten Rock last time out. He is likely to improve but whether he is good enough to win this is questionable. Jessica Harrington brings MODEM (5/1 Coral) here, a horse who ran a good race last time out behind the smart Katie T in the Leopardstown hurdle. A reproduction of that form should see him right in the mix. He ran up to 1m6f on the level and the Naas hill may bring the best out of the smart Motivator gelding.
MALLOWNEY (NAP) (11/8 William Hill) was napped last time out at 8-1, and was a very impressive winner in a competitive handicap at Fairyhouse. A lot of these runners have come up against each other on quite a number of occasions now and, at the weights, it is hard to look anywhere else but the Tim Doyle trained gelding. Davy Russell and the horse have struck up a great partnership and look as though they may continue their good record together tomorrow. Moscow Mannon has finished ahead of Doyle’s charge on three out of their four battles and looks likely to give him the most to do.
If the aforementioned Empire of Dirt runs well earlier in the card it would be hard not to side with KILCREA (8/1 Paddy Power). He wouldn’t have beaten him two runs back had the Gigginstown runner stood up but nonetheless was there to pick up the pieces. He didn’t get much of a hike for that win and ran well last time out in a competitive event at Leopardstown. Both the step up in trip and ground should suit and the regular blinkers are fitted.
