All our runners arrived home safely last night from Killarney. We have no runners today but plenty of entries for the week ahead.
4 runners at Kilbeggan today (and 1 reserve) Leomar, Ondamoura, Zanjabeel and Turn Over Sivola.
Three runners at Tipperary today; Knockmaole Boy in the first, a Maiden Hurdle, Chesapeake in the Handicap Hurdle and Crest in the Beginners Chase.
Best of luck to all nominees at the Irish Stable Staff Awards this evening, Our own staff Zoe Winston (administration award) and Camilla Sharples (Head Of Travelling award) are both in the finals.
We have 7 runners who make there way to Downpatrick:
We begin the day with WESTLAND ROW who returns to action after a little break. He will have to improve from his last few runs but we hope the change in going will benefit him today. Jamie Codd rides.
LOOSE ENDS takes her chance in the next for the Club. She has had some solid runs over hurdles, hopefully she can draw a line through her last run and produce a game effort. Denis O’Regan is in the saddle.
We have 2 runners in the 2m 5f Maiden Hurdle ROCK LOBSTER who also returns from a little break, he has proven he is more then competitive at this level and maybe today can be his chance to break his duck over hurdles. Conor Brassil rides. POLYMATH also lines up in this race, he has failed to produce his bumper form over hurdles, yet he drops back down in trip today and Chris Meehan’s 7lb claim will help matters.
We also have 2 lining up in the 2m 5f Handicap Hurdle, CANOVA steps up in trip today, he has been very in and out of late and he has Daragh Maher on his back taking 7lbs off.
PRESENTING JULIO returns back over hurdles today, he should really enjoy the better going and hopefully he can return to winning ways. Jamie Codd rides.
PENNY JANE is our last runner of the day in Downpatrick, she lines up in a small field of runners for the concluding bumper. An encouraging 4th last time out she wears a hood for the second time and has Jamie Codds help from the saddle.
2 Runners Travel down to Cork:
We have DELTA WORK who lines up in the first race of the day in Cork. He was a winner in France on the Flat and makes his debut over Hurdles today. He has been schooling well at home and supports a hood for his debut. Bryan Cooper rides.
DALOUGA also takes her chance in the Mares Bumper, she was an encouraging second on debut in Fairyhouse and if she was to repeat that preformance she should be in with a shout. Lisa O’Neill rides.
No runners today but Downpatrick and Cork tomorrow followed by Wexford on Saturday.
