There is plenty of racing action to start the new week, with six meetings on Monday across Britain and Ireland. Flat racing comes from Catterick, Roscommon Windsor and Wolverhampton (AW), alongside jumps cards from Hereford and Killarney on a busy day.

Our Monday Racing Tips includes Gentleman De Mee for Willie Mullins and Mark Walsh on day two of Killarney's season-opening May meeting.

Monday Racing Tips

  • 15:35 Hereford – Whatsdastory @ 11/1
  • 18:35 Windsor – Laoisman @ 5/2
  • 18:40 Killarney – Gentleman De Mee @ 4/5

15:35 Hereford – Whatsdastory @ 11/1 

Sam Twiston-Davies has a prolific strike-rate at Hereford, with 29 winners from 124 rides across the last five seasons for a 23 per cent record and a level stakes profit of +19.70.

He's at the course on Monday afternoon with just one scheduled mount and it could be worth following for Dr Richard Newland and Jamie Insole.

The mare WHATSDASTORY was a quick ground winner here over 2m5f in October 2022 and ran third over this C&D (good) back in November.

She threatened at Taunton in February when second over shorter and was going well at Wincanton in March over this trip when unseating Lee Edwards three out.

Her pulled up effort at Exeter last month was on heavy ground and she should be more at home on this surface.

Down to a career-low rating of 102, the veteran should go well.

18:35 Windsor – Laoisman @ 5/2 

This Sprint Series Handicap represents a rise in grade for LAOISMAN but he's thriving and can take it in his stride.

Originally campaigned over 7f/1m, he has progressed nicely for the drop to sprinting, with wins at Chepstow, Lingfield and Wolverhampton taking his figures at this trip to 2111.

The runner-up effort was over this C&D last summer in novice company when he was just worn down late on by a useful Roger Charlton inmate.

A 3lb rise for his latest success looks fair and the Night Of Thunder gelding can bag another prize after a nice five-week rest.

18:40 Killarney – Gentleman De Mee @ 4/5 

Grade 3 fare over jumps from Ireland on Monday evening comes via the An Riocht Chase as Killarney gets another summer of racing underway.

The County Kerry venue is amongst the most scenic racecourses in the world and a staple of the Irish summer/autumn season.

Willie Mullins, now Britain and Ireland's champion trainer, elects to send GENTLEMAN DE MEE here and he can prove too classy for his seven rivals.

He's a dual winner at Grade 1 level over fences and was second to Captain Guinness in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham in March.

He unseated Mark Walsh since at Punchestown, but that appears to have been an anomaly for a usually reliable jumper.

He can add this prize, won in recent times by the yard with Ballycasey (2017), Easy Game (2022) and Saint Sam (2023), before likely going on his summer break as his trainer looks to go one more time having only got as far as the second fence at Punchestown 13 days ago.
