Friday 20th November

Lovely crisp morning here at Cullentra, great win from Roman Gold yesterday but poor old Mala Beach was very unlucky. Just the one runner this evening at Dundalk, Taglietelle is back on the flat, such a versatile horse we are hopeful of a good run. Looks like a busy weekend ahead with plenty of entries.

Wednesday 18th November

Faraway Mountain does run today! He will be ridden by Luke Dempsey all being well – we just have to call up at 9am to book him on.

Gordon has advised that Faraway is running today to gain more experience, it looks a good race but he will be doing his best and will gain a Handicap mark after his next run. We have one of the most promising young riders in Luke Dempsey on board and as usual we will have a full report from Gordon and Luke tomorrow.

 

**Update**

Faraway is home safe and sound!

Tuesday 17th November

Faraway Mountain has been declared for Fairyhouse tomorrow but is a reserve. We will know in the morning if there are any non runners and we will do our best to let you all know as soon as possible, unfortunately it could very last minute. I will continue to update as and when we know more.

Club Event – Members Open Day & Navan Races 23rd January 2016

On the subject of the Open Day, what we had in mind and what would be the norm is something along the lines of; arrival at approx. 9am followed by a tour of the stables and of course time on the gallops to watch the Club horses. The Club horses will also be paraded and I will give my thoughts and plans for each. Everyone can then walk around the yard at their leisure for a half hour or so and meet their favourites/stable stars and have an opportunity to take pictures etc, we will then group again for a Q&A with tea/coffee and some breakfast.

We will work with Navan in regards to perhaps discounted entry/punters packs etc for the races. That is very basic plans for the moment just to give you an idea but if anyone has any suggestions please let Zoe know as she will be organising/booking things and as always we are open to ideas!

Just for reference we welcome friends and family to the Open Day but if you can bear in mind that we want to keep Open Days etc exclusive to our members as they are one of the perks of being in the Club – therefor guests are limited to 1 per member (not including children who are more than welcome) unless previously organised with Zoe.

Saturday 14th November

6 runners today at Punchestown:

2 runners in the Beginners Chase; FREE EXPRESSION makes his seasonal debut under Mark Walsh, he’s such a nice horse and very genuine we hope for another progressive run today, also KILLER CROW today with Mikey Fogarty in the saddle, he tired last time out but will have come on for that run.
CURRENT EXCHANGE is back under rules today, he has been such great horse for his owners and we are hopeful of another good run again today. Tim Donworth rides.


2 runners in the Maiden Hurdle; ANNIHILATE makes his debut, he’s pleasing at home and we hope for a nice introduction. Jack Kennedy rides. Also in this WOODFORD ISLAND who ran very well last time out and has the most experience of all the runners, Keith Donoghue rides.


Finally DE PLOTTING SHED contests the bumper, he was going well when falling in a Point to Point in April, we hope that little bit of experience will help him today. Jamie Codd rides.

Friday 13th November

Thankfully the weather has cleared up here today, lets hope it lasts!

Great day yesterday, almost perfect with a double and three 2nds!

One runner tonight at Dundalk, National Service takes his chances, he’s been frustrating but showed improvement last time out. We also have 2 at Cheltenham, Bless The Wings contests the Cross Country Race which will be great to watch, he’s a brilliant jumper so we hope he takes to the new obstacles well, he went away last week to a Cross Country course to get some practice in and the report back was very good!

Definite Ruby is in the Amateur Riders race, she rallied well last time out at Cheltenham to finish 2nd so we hope she can go one better today, finally we have Dove Mountain at Wolverhampton so it’s going to be a busy day all round the and a busy weekend ahead with lots of entries at Punchestown and Cork.

Todays Runners

5 runners at Clonmel today:
First up is JETSTREAM JACK in the Maiden Hurdle with Davy Russell on board, he’s a lovely big horse who is very well at home and we hope for a nice run today.
PRINCE OF SCARS is next in the Handicap Hurdle, it’s both his yard and seasonal debut he’s been doing everything right at home and is in great order.
BRIGHT NEW DAWN has been a bit hairy on his last 2 runs and this is exteremely competative but we hope he can stay upright today under Keith Donoghue in the Grade 2.
MISS DINAMIC, what a little mare, she’s so consistent and always tries her heart out, we hope can look forward to another gutsy run today with Bryan Cooper on board in the very competative Grade 3 Mares Chase of just 4 runners.
Lastley we have HOSTILE FIRE who fell at the first last time out, he was thankfully ok and is back to try again today.
