We continue with racing after a decent return yesterday and The Irish Rover looks the horse to be on in 15:35 on the second day of the St Leger Festival.

The Irish Rover @ 5/1

Ryan Moore and Aidan O’Brien have had plenty of success over the seasons and look a good bet in this six-furlong and 111-yard trip.

It could prove to be a family affair, with Donnacha O’Brien riding No Needs Never for brother Joseph.

No Needs Never and The Irish Rover share the same sire and our tip today is set to wear blinkers for the first time, with them having served his dad No Nay Never well over the years.

The two-year-old’s form is encouraging, with a third in the Phoenix Stakes and fourth in the Gimcrack, suggesting he can claim his first win since May.

Pilaster to win @ 11/8

Roger Varian is an understated trainer who knows his way to success and Pilaster is a filly with some serious form heading into the Park Hill Stakes at 15:00.

After all-weather wins over progressive distance at Chelmsford and Kempton, a victory in the Lillie Langtry Stakes at Glorious Goodwood demonstrated her credentials.

Andrew Balding’s Horseplay will provide competition, but there is something about this daughter of the brilliant Nathaniel that tempts you towards success on Town Moor, especially with 2014 winner Andrea Atzeni on board
